    Thought somebody here might enjoy this. Some of the folks on the coltforum seemed to like it. This is a really crappy copy of a Colt 1851 navy/1860 Army/Reb revolver. Something that Colt never produced. I've had this thing since I was a kid. I decided to lop the barrel off of it and do some experiments with "antique" finish. I think it came out pretty well.

    Here's a couple of updated photos since I added "44CAL" and part of the serial number to the cylinder:
