1884 TD build

Not done yet but darn close. should trigger guard match the barrel and lock or the nose cap?

Lookin' good Archie! You certainly are going to have a unique TD that is going to draw lots of attention. You've done a beautiful job on it!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63

Thanks Billy, that is the idea. Every gun I have ever put together has been done to NOT look like the average off-the-rack rifle.

Yes...Very nice...

I don't have an opinion on the trigger guard.

Looks PG the way it is.
