My friend picked this up today at a local pawn shop. I'll be taking it home with me and pretty it up.

How does the grip feel on that pistol? It looks like it might be uncomfortable.

I agree they look that way Ron but they're actually comfortable.

Thank you for that information!

I had a black powder pistol with a steep angle to the grip like the one pictured. It was not uncomfortable, but the reach to the trigger was very long. I had to shift my hand position for cocking and then for firing.

I thought the barrel looked a little crooked! I'll have to do a little inletting but a lot of hogging out of the lock so the drum sits deeper into the lock. Quite a bit of tang sticking out of the wood inletting due to the drum and lock interference.

I have always liked the pistols like GRRW made back in the day, still available and like everything else they have become pricey.

Some before pictures. I did a little work on it today and got the major stuff knocked off the list.










Removed material from the lock and now the drum sits in deeper and the tang has dropped back into the wood inletting.



Protruding lock screws were also trimmed today. This was BEFORE I got to them.


6-1mm nipple thread was cleaned up as it had a snug spot. Now it installs clean and smoothly.

Well over the past 2 days I took some time and stripped the barrel down and browned it. I'll install a fresh nipple, then move onto the stock and get the finish removed.
