    BUT are you all cleaned up and ready to go! How many screws did Bubba loose on this clean up job. Really not much to let bubba play with, barrel assembly, cylinder, frame, trunnon screw and trunnon.

    Have fun and do not hurt any one next to you Charlie. IF you decide to dell that ting, let me know, seriously.

    Drat, got rained out.......try again tomorrow!

    JJ, better start saving up them confederate bills if ya want this one. It's a first year production (1860) and a US contract gun! (So marked on the frame next to "Colt Patent) Also has the fluted cylinder.

    Looks like a crack in the stock on the left side in the photo, but there is no crack! It's in the grain....never noticed it before! :)
