Next up is a 38/44 Heavy Duty from 1954.

She was rebuilt and had their Master reblue done by Horace Booth at Ford's a few years ago. He did an amazing job.. I've heard he's semi-retired now and someone else is doing the bulk of the work. That's too bad. He's a true artisan..

Stags are by Patrick. Note the lack of bark. I really, really like this pair! They're the best work I've seen by him..

Thanks for the kind words, guys..

I'm starting to get the hang of using a light box. Takes some getting used to, but I think it's worth the effort.

I hope y'all are enjoying my project so far..

Geoff,
Those stags of yours are beautys!

Did you keep them when you sold that gun?

My 38/44 shoots like a dream.. Horace did a great job on 'er. Being an N frame shooting 38 Specials, she handles the recoil quite well.
