    Hey Rick, I agree with Tony, that's a beautiful rifle! I like that Osage Bourbon St Skinner too!:thumbup::thumbup:

    Nice pic Bob!

    Yes sir, it is a 38 Special cartridge conversion. It's a Uberti 1871 from Taylor Firearms in Winchester, Virginia. If you have an interest, send me a PM and I'll forward you my contact there.

    The Clipsqueak? :D

    I know it's not really a clip point, but that name is so fitting haha. I find it strange that such a small change in a design can make it go from 'zero interest' to 'I want one'.

    Yeah, I definitely want one! :thumbup:

    Haha! I think I'll just wait until Andy grinds a few more. :D

    I'm glad you agree! I think a swedge would probably look pretty good as well, though I'm typically a fan of no swedge. Every once in a while I'm drawn towards a swedged model.

    Wow! Not only is each piece individually stellar but the combos are even sweeter with that definite consistent period vibe.

    Nice. :thumbup:

    My family and friends have always claimed I was born in the wrong century. They've been saying it since I was 10 years old.

    I forgot to give credit - the leather is Rick Lowe's work. The blades are W.A. Surls.

    Appreciate that, but it's amazing what an idiot like me can do with a cell phone camera these days. I can't take much credit.

    Completely forgot about those! Glad you reminded me, because the app I'm using is driving me NUTS!

    Going to be a full-on winter day here tomorrow. I'll get a fire blazing and check em out. Thanks for the reminder.
