    Thats some gorgeous work there! Beautiful craftsmanship, and the fit/finish looks to be second to none!

    Stunning presentation on that wheel gun! Great piece of functional art Jack!

    Really nice work.That would look good on my Ruger Single-Six 22.My grips are original from 1981 and are looking a little dried out.I need to replace them or treat the wood with something.

    i've bought the pair of 1858's both the pistol and carbine ( carbine i'm waiting on )

    i really want that black finish , the tigerwood and some highlighted engraving on both

    i've a bandoleer so i can carry 4 loaded wheels and spare balls powder and caps and acts as a holster for both pistol or carbine

    and i plan on adding the BP Earl from NAA when that arrives , and that, will be "the Kit"

    catalogue pic of the pair

    They look to be some fun guns.

    P.S.I looks as if Black Powder is very popular Down Under.

    Tasmanian Blackwood Beth,

    heres how it looked when i got it

    he's cut it at a angle so the grains show and end and stained and polished it beautifully

    i have asked for the blanks to be cut 8" x 2" x 1/2" they normally cut the wood for pen blanks and make $100 + pens from it

    if another size would be better let me know ..

    you can buy this type of wood and others now in the US a bloke there has teamed up with folks here
