    Yes, that was a relief as I did not want more unused holes in the receiver. Even if they were hidden I would know that they were there.

    Thanks Deacon, Getting that M1 Garand sight fitted into a base was a pain but worth it. As far as the fun part, that will probably have to wait a couple of months for weather to cool down, it's just too darned hot down here to do any shooting.

    Did you use the Garand style sight from Tech Sites?

    Hope to get my 38 Super back in a couple of days, my gunsmith and I test fired it the other day and it shoots like a house on fire! WOW, he did a great job fitting it up. Now I just have to polish it and get it blued....

    It's really more an AR 15 type sight with an adjustable post, not a fixed blade, but it is the Tech Sight, but it looks the part.

    Yes it does. I installed one of Tech Sites on one of my Mini 14s with a short barrel years ago. Great site.

    I have never tried a S/A with a Bisley grip. For some reason to me they just do not look right, but looking closer the angle seems more like a S&W double action, which is the revolver I prefer. I have two S/A guns, a Ruger Super Blackhawk, that I am not real crazy about shooting, and then a smaller 50 year anniversar single six 22, with 22LR and 22 Mag cylinder.

    My latest acquisition is a S&W hand ejector 32-20 from I think 1922, got a factory letter stashed somewhere on it, that a previous owner had gotten.

    Commercial 1917. Frame built for the WWI contract, but wasn’t completed until after the war ended, sometime around 1920.

    I recently acquired another 1917, a US Army, which has its barrel replaced at some point, and I plan to cut to “Indy length” [emoji4]

    Take those swivels off and it looks just like my 32-20!

    I had never held a Colt Bisley either until this one! But with my XXL paw, it feels great! The extra length lets me get all three fingers around the grip.

    Full Stock, Double Set Trigger, Mannlicher Schonauer .270, ca~1950, with 4x Kahles Scope and Griffin and Howe mount, shooting Federal blue box 130s. Needless to say I was bagged up but, for a full stock, it IS accurate!

    MS actions are smooth but not "fast" ... just as an Enfield is fast but not smooth. Short of a John Rigby this is the rifle every mid century adventurer ought to have!

    I have always loved the looks of the Mannlicher style stocks. Just elegant and the butter knife bolt handles!
    Well, finally got my Super .38 from the 'smith today! Now for the polishing and then lettering the slide so it can get properly blued! Oh, I have to modify the sight to look like one from the 30s, but that is not going to be a huge problem, just some grinder and file work. Now, do I want to add some buffalo nickels to these grips or put some stag grips on it?[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, I got everything back from engraving the slide, and the little beastie looks like a slightly worn gun from the 30s. I did the cold blue looking for flaws, so I am still deciding on whether to strip it and have it professionally hot-blued. Sig barrel, Caspian frame, Rock Island slide, Wilson, Colt and Wolff internals. Ti=his thing is super tight and has a gorgeous trigger, shoots like a house on fire!

    I think I would leave that one as is. It's showing it's age gracefully.

    I’m digging the “worn” look too. Just a question if the cold blue holds up to your expectations
