1861 Colt Navys with pics.
 
I got these from a forum member... Kelly-A. He custom made the grips. They sure are beauties. :D I'm gonna build a display case for em.
He can tell ya much more about em than I can.

Guns were made to be shot. That's why I usually stay away from the guns made for show. The prettier they are, the more I want to shoot them. (Kind of like women.....except I don't want to shoot them) :D

Good point , guns are made to be shot . But when you got lots of them you can choose to shoot them or not :D
Some people collect Picaso and Rembrandt to admire on thier walls , some collect guns . I often buy two of each gun, one to admire, one to use as the tool they were intended to be .

And for what Junior here bought them for , he could turn a handy profit ;)
Unfired would be a must , and they are that :D
