Re: S&W N Frame .45 Long Colt Conversion

ok keep it up..... :lol:
I have an old 5 screw .38/44 that I've been trying to decide what to do with.
first just going to refinish it,, then changed my mind to rechambering to .44 special.... then thinking maybe .45 auto, now you have to go and show this.....lol
Hmmm .45 colt, now that would be SWEET....
at this rate I'm never going to make up my mind....

Good deal, Dave. Carry it and be safe in your job. I like knowing that there are men like you, and others in your profession on this board, that are out there fighting the evildoers and keeping the streets safer.

I do like the .45 LC conversion, big caliber, big bullet, it hits your a$$ then it is big trouble for whoever gets one.

A big ihfnlllllq to all who fit that bill.

Dave,
That is a gun to ride the river with. You done good with that one. Well done! I just noticed the engraved Copenhagen lid after the 3rd or 4th time of staring at your revolver. Nice prop too.

Dave, I can't wait to see this 45 when you are done. 45 Colt is one of my favoite "using" calibers. All My Best, Joe.

Dave,

That is just beautiful. Who will you use for engraving? Loved the model 27 that was engraved.
