Added a vintage T-Grip to the Colt PPS.

And then, two GB auction wins. One was pretty much a bust, a 1930 Colt Detective Special that intrigued me as it had law enforcement markings on the butt. It's been refinished (heavy handedly) and the original Colt markings are gone from the frame, though the LE markings are still there on the butt though a bit buffed out. Barrel is a later replacement. Grips were a poor fit so I got Thai smooth hardwood grips that only fit a little better. Either the original frame was a bit off or the refinish messed it up (probably the latter). It's still a neat prewar Colt that was 100% carried by cops back in the day.

Markings with original grips:

(Sheriff of "W" County, would take a factory letter to narrow it down. Colt would have shipped directly to the department back then.)

New grips:

And the good buy, a LNIB 1978 S&W 14-4 Masterpiece .38 Special. I'll shoot it for sure but you can guarantee I'll baby it. Another heirloom gun.

Some new pics.

The 14-4 pictured above with new Altamont olivewood Roper-type (Fauxper) target grips.

Image

Got some Thai repros of the old Colt targets (originals run about $300 in nice shape) but they looked unfinished when they arrived. Some tung oil love and now they look the part on my 1933 Colt OMT.

Image

And the new 629-2 Mountain Revolver (.44 Magnum) with some Mayan Bloodwood boot grips. I imagine it will be a handful with this combo and full power loads.

Maybe instead of taking pics of your revolvers you could weed and feed your yard. Mow it, water it, idk, hell just talking to it might help it.

Revolver buys have slowed quite a bit. 1) more competition online 2) not many old guns FS in E WA and 3) been pouring money into the endless pit that is my P80 build.

S&W 1917, all original but plenty of honest wear. These are .45ACP guns that can be used without moon clips (punch out cases with a dowel) but really call for them for fast shooting. This is an early example (four digit serial number) with the grooved hammer and grips with concave tops.

104 year old gun, all original, served in World War One and possibly other later conflicts, that fires a readily-available modern cartridge. What's not to like?
