    I currently have a few builds done by various gunsmiths. Some current, some have passed on. I have a couple more on books and am thinking of finding a smith that may be willing to take on my idea. Many smiths are not keen on the idea of straying from the traditional.

    Ask Mr. Wizard ............. What can you tell me about collet bushing & barrel sets? I received this beautiful Colt from @jaydoc yesterday.

    I acquired a 1950 Colt LW .38 sup recently. I took it to the range and managed to get some lead chunks to go through the paper man standing up against the dirt bank. Most of the time I had to ask him to wait there and stand still while I managed to somehow get the trigger pulled. After the...

    I'm not looking for a museum piece or high dollar safe queen (unless the price is right) but more of one that I can occasionally shoot and appreciate for its age. Show/tell me what you have, what you want and/or what you would like in a trade.
