nothing to do with mine.
But brain dead surfing on the internet lead me to Reeder's Custom Guns...
Boy he has some purty ones.

I thought this was an odd choice to make a bespoke classic

Purdy, but, it's brass... the question "why, though?" comes to mind.

  I'm sorry but I don't see a brass revolver anywhere.

WHEN I posted the link, there was plain as day. IIRC, like $800 is what it was listed for, and it's gone now. Durned Purdy, for sure.

Mounted the grips I WAS gonna replace.. turns out, with judicious sanding (fitting them to the gun, and removing machining marks) they're right purdy. Guess they stay. Need to take off the right side one, and do some finite sanding to fit it to the frame better, then "I'll send 'er" and tailor them to the butt.

emailed Gary, and asked for archived pics, if I get them, I'll host them. For both clarity, and inspiration.

Thanks, Cap'n. I have become obsessed, it's taking a back burner for a minute, have other things scrambling for my attention.

wish there wasa way to season the barrel, so I could leave it in the white.
Entire frame and barrel assembly is now dry 220/440 sanded, and then wet sanded 1000/1500/2000, and then hand polished with Zephyr Pro40.

I thought I was happy with my Taylor and Company Stainless Sheriff's '58... Nah... It pails in comparo to this kit gun, and will be next.
Smokey's Lyman, has Patina'd to almost an original production hue, that';; be left alone, but this brasser and that Sheriff... They gonna gleam, lol.

We can still see some machining/lack of sanding marks in the brass. I'll decide how bad they bother me (they exist in my $550 Sheriff's as well) and then eliminate them or leave them. Gut says eliminate...

Oh, man, that's turning out purty. You have more patience than me.

I don't think that's the one he's working on.
