Got a hold of a guy on another forum. He goes by Phil Coffins. I really like what he did with the Lyman Plains pistol kit. So I called up Susie at Gun works in Oregon and asked her to pick out a 54 caliber plains pistol that had as good of wood as she could find in there inventory. She was more than willing to help. I think I got a really nice piece of wood and Phi did an excellent job putting this kit together. I am super happy with the way it turned out. If you notice the bolster has some work done to it along with the color case hardening of the breech area.  Phil also reworked my trigger and did some other really nice things with the gun. My hats off to Phil for waht a nice job he. I feel like I have a custom made pistol. Al

Congratulations, Al!
The wood is particularly nice for a commercial pistol.
That looks much better than my Lyman Plains Pistol. Of course the one I have was  used and came already built.
Have fun with it,
Ron

I had one a few years ago. They're fun to shoot.

Yours looks way better than mine did.

Was the clip on the side white before. If so, what did you use to darken it? I did a CVA Mountain pistol from a kit but the Aluminum stain from Birchwood Casey didn't do much to darken it.

I would need to ask him. Maybe he will join in here and can answer that. Yes it was white.

That looks close to the old CVA Mountain pistols.I built a 50 way back in the early 70s. Carried it as a back up on deer hunts when I lived in Missouri . My son killed his first deer with it when he was 15 on a draw hunt . Need to get it out and shoot it more often then I do fun gun and very accurate.

I did the work for Big Al 52. The belt hook was browned with Plum Brown same as the barrel. It did take more effort being the steel is harder.

I have one that's a little over 30 years old and the belt hook is still shiny as ever.

Since I'm new here I'll share the photo that got BigAl52 and I talking. These are pistols that I did from the Lyman kits, one with a fair amount of extra work.
