Cimarron's good stuff, and those conversions do look pretty sweet. The Rugers are a little more practical, but that's certainly not the only thing that matters. :)

I like my many, many, many Rugers, but....

If Sturm Ruger ever tried to build a woman, the concept would look like Lynda Carter......But the finished product would most likely resemble Nell Carter. :gonk:

Lol to be clear I traded the Ruger Old Vaquero for a Taylor's and Company (another Uberti Importer) Navy 1871 38 Sp w/ 5.5 inch barrel. I think it will pair up nicely with my man with no name. Both have the brass frame and octagon barrels. Pictures of both pistols will be posted tomorrow after I pick up the new pistol tomorrow afternoon. I'm excited. :awesome:

That is a nice pair. Just make sure your wedges are installed "gudentite".

Ruger's single actions are pretty good looking; they're just 'big-boned'. :)

I like my pistols like I like my men: sleek, tough, and European. That said, the Webley is the classic body builder on my list, with its barrel chest and raw power. I keep looking for one of the MkIVs with the .45ACP mod (milling the back of the cylinder to accept moon clips) solely because I think that all else aside, they are cool.

\m/-_-\m/ The Birdhead is sooo choice...

My deal fell through on the Uberti,.. I would have rather had a .38 anyway. You were right about the grip. It felt a little awkward.

I'm going to build a 1858 Remington .36 with a Kirst cylinder. I wonder if I could do one in 44 special? Pressures are about the same at 38 Special... I'll have to research it.
It stops being funny when it starts being you.
