OK Nano,

Here's a couple or three;

S&W M28-2, 4" bbl a New York State Police gun, RR front, WO rear, smooth trigger.



Here a .38 Hand Ejector, S&W from the '30s.



Next up, a M27-2 and a M28-2 both with 6" bbls.



Finally, 3 Rugers in .44 Magnum. Top a New Model Super Blackhawk, 4 5/8" bbl Custom by Magnaport, middle a Flat top Blackhawk 6 1/2" bbl, bottom, a Super Blackhawk Old Model 7 1/2" bbl.



That's enough for now.

My recently acquired 4" S&W 629. Custom action job by Art Leckie in PA.

I love my 1911's, but have not fired either of 'em since picking this baby up. Load development has become an obsession, & fortunately, I'm beginning to make some progress. It ain't easy, let me tell ya'!

Shown is a group produced off bags at 25 yards. Hornady 240JHP-XTP over 11.4 grains of VV N-350. Measures just under 1.0".

AA #5 loads are beginning to show some progress, as well...

My first..

Here's my first revolver.. a used 686 I picked up last week. Just got my squarebutt Ahrend grips on her today...very nice grips. Sorry for my crappy pic, but my digital camera doesn't like macro shots apparently.

Thanks for the detail DHart. I think I might give that a whirl. I love the grips but they do feel slick... think the feel of the actual wood would feel and grip better.
Gonna give it a shot!

Thanks!

I know it's a cliche, but they truly don't make them like this anymore.

DHart thanks for the tips. They feel so much better hand rubbed than with the polyurethane finish. Sanded em down and applied teak oil to em. I love this revolver even more now, feels and grips so much better with my new Ahrends.



Rear needed some sanding to make the grips flush, came out nice after about 15minutes of sanding

WOW - big diff, huh? Really nice job.

Does Kim Ahrends have a web site? I'd like to check out the round butt variations for my 4" 629. And maybe (just to give DHart a run for his money) for my 2.5" 686, as well. ;=]

Who would have thought so many revolver fans, on the 1911 forum? And they said the wheel gun was dead.....

Thanks GCF! He doesn't have a website, but below is his info. I sent him a check for these grips lastweek and got them on Monday, very quick turn around. You can call him also if you have any questions, both him and his wife are very nice and helpful. They have me sold.

I bought a set of roundbutts thinking I would get a L frame roundbutt, man they are gorgeous. Just sitting on em till I get a 2.5 686 ;)
