Got a good deal on this Bushnell Trophy Handgun 2-6x32 pistol scope. Warne scope rings will arrive next week.
I’ll have a separate thread on what this scope is being mounted to in a few months....Can’t. Wait.
Sold my BPD '53 Colt Detective to the resident BPD collector and replaced it with this 1950 Pre-M10 S/W, also in .38 special. A much more hefty gun; basically a full frame with a short barrel. A little pitting on the outside, the cylinders and bore are great. Will do until I find a pre-war example.
Decided to have my Gen 5 frame stippled. After looking around at prices and lead times I was shocked to find out how much it cost and the wait times can be several months. While I know it is a lot of work the prices just seemed to high.
I was referred to a guy from central MA. I have to say I was more than impressed with his work. Gave him the stripped frame got a written receipt. 2 weeks I got this back. His work rivals that of companies that charge $400 plus. If anyone is interested in having work done I highly recommend him. Below is his email address feel free to email him
That's a nice shooter! I'm in the camp of, I would leave any milsurp just as it is IF it's in all original pristine condition. But I have no problems buying ones that have been screwed with if the price is right. I've got several old GI bringbacks that were nickeled/ chromed and lost all their collector value. In fact I finally decided to do something on the 1917 P.08 I've had for over 5 years that is horrible-looking with flaking nickel, and rust spots. I'll post all my processes and results in the milsurp section when I get around to it.
