    Did you make the sights? Looks almost like you milled the frame and used Ruger sights. Look nice. Accurate guns are the only ones to have!

    No Sir , I did not make any of these sights , or mill the frames , bone stock Target Models here , just trigger jobs and pollished internals and custom grips . While the target model sights are not quite Millet Grade , they are nice nonetheless and can take a pounding , trust me :D

    Kelly,

    Those are some B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L ! Pistols my friend! I am envious of the collection! How man years have you been collecting them. And the impressive thing is obviously they just do not set in a safe! You enjoy them! That is fantastic! :D

    Thanks Sniper

    Thanks Sniper , and have been buying , selling , trading , collecting , shooting , since I was a kid . Always an Ebb and Flow to the collection , but the BP stuff I have been avid in since my 20's . I still have one of my original BP revolvers from then . Collecting for awhile I guess is the answer . Oh heck yes I shoot them ! I do have lots of unfired ones too but only because they aint made a range trip yet . Some may never get fired ? I'm ok with that , they make great conversational art to enlighten the ignoramous .
    Thing is , once I fired a cap and ball revolver with the Holy Black in it , I was hooked for life . This is my prefered lifestyle and guns to shoot over any other .

    Nice group of BP revolvers

    What I like about BP, I've only been into it 2months, is that I'm finding out that it's less expensive to have a half dozen Piatta's, Traditions, Rugers, CVA's than to buy the S&W's and Kimber's. I have one Kimber .45acp that cost as much as 6 of the Tradition revolver I bought. I kinda wish I would have looked into BP almost 50 years ago when I first started shooting. It seems like black powder shooting kinda "skipped" my generation. Thanks for the fine pictures of your firearms, it motivates me to add to my "collection" of traditional type guns.

    Enjoy the shooting sports, :)
