    Beth, they are pulling your leg. That is JLA's S&W 357mag DCM. He has shown it to us before just to make us drool. It has unique adjustable front sight. That wasn't bad enough and then Zane goes and gets one too only nickle and the drooling just continues.

    I, myownself, thought "Python", but yeah, vent rib, full underlug, and the glare makes it look blue. Hole looks right for 357. Smith "L" frame and Colt 41 frame are the same size.

    Beth, many years back I was a spectator at a cowboy shoot with a girl that makes jewelry. She said something like, "Wonder what kind of rifle he's using". I said it was a '73 Winchester. Now, we were some 40 or 50 feet away, and she was skeptical. "How can you tell?" I asked her if she could tell the difference, with her beads, between onyx and coral and opal and amethyst, etc. She said of course she could. I asked her how she could tell. "Been doing it for years. I know what they look like". I told her it was the same thing.

    You've been doing the gun thing for about a year and a half, right? Don't know about John, but I been messing with 'em close to 40. Sometimes you just "know", and don't even know how you know.

    That is a Q-tip nestled into the end of my S&W 586 DCM ''magnum baby yeah'', the light from my T-5 lightstrip over my desk is reflecting off the Q-tip and lighting up the interior bore. I lapped this bore about 4 or 5 months ago and everytime I clean it it brings a smile to my face.

    BTW, I mostly only shoot lead in my handguns lubed with my own formulation of homemade boolit lube. This barrel was last crudded with bluedot and 158 gr WFN, I abandoned the bluedot loads because titegroup and unique waaaay outperformed them...

    Johns got a keen eye, as do most of the rest of the gunnuts around here. My boss wheels out an 1861 springfield rifle musket stamped 1863 on it at christmas one year. As soon as he rounded the corner with it i told him what it was. One of the other drivers thot I was BSin, but when Rob set the rifle on the table and mark could see the stampings on the reciever he looked at me and said, "youre in the wrong business" I said "I know" but stirrin poo sure pays the bills better than smithin does. So i do both;)
