    Black metal flake. After I get done with the gun mechanically, considering coyote Cerrokote with tape insets on the textured grip panels.

    Very nice New Service! Those are my favorite of the classic revolvers.
    My most recent New Service acquisition was a 1917 production in .455 Eley caliber, with British military acceptance marks. (not US Model of 1917)
    Supposedly a private purchase by a British officer, for WWI, but I need to get a Colt letter to (possibly) prove that.

    (If you ever decide that you want to sell it, let me know. I have an FFL here who will accept shipment.)

  3. What surprised me is that the standard grip feels much better in my hand than the standard grips on the S&W N frames. Going to try to find a grip adapter for it and see how that feels in my oversize paw.

    For both the Colt and S&W large-frame standard grips the grip adapter helps a lot for me.
    You should try to find one for yours.
    I have a New Service in .44-40 that looks like a former law-enforcement gun - not much finish and much more wear on the outside (right) grip, so I put my one large-Colt grip adapter on it. That seemed like an appropriate place for it. It helps...

    I've had this one since the late 50's...trusty old Fanner 50.

  6. Welcome to the joint MB!

    Well, got about medium rare on the range yesterday, shot three .32s. A Colt, H&R and an Iver Johnson. Was not a fair comparison, the Colt and H&R were both basket case rebuilds and the IJ was well cared for, with the Colt sporting a 6" barrel, the H&R a 2' and the IH a 3" barrel and the HR without a front sight! Well, at 7 yards they all kept them on a pieplate! Single action both the Colt and IJ kept decent groups at 15 yards. The IJ showed that it had been better treated over the decades, showing that they were very good quality guns. I used .32ACP ammo by Fiocchi in all of them.
    The Colt is going to get a total strip and scrub down [again!] to see how much more gunk I can get out of it's innards.

  7. Wasn't too much gunk left in the Colt, so I guess my first job was thorough! It does seem to like Miltec grease and has smoothed up considerably.
     
  8. Took a couple scatterguns to the range today, a Remington 11 in 16 Gauge and a Stoeger Coach Gun in 12. Both ran well, but I am not used to shooting shotguns as much as I used to! After about a box and a half of light field loads, I was done!

    A 12-gauge coach gun will really get your attention... on both ends! Nice guns.

    I have posted this Uberti Schofield before, but I made a better holster for it.

    Uberti makes a beautiful Schofield. I have a Denix Schofield myself. That holster is a work of art. You should be very proud.

    Thank you Bushman. I'm not familiar with the Denix Schofield. Would love to see a photo. :)

    I have not seen one of them. Outstanding. Six inch Barrel? Caliber? When was it manufactured?

    8 inch, it's nonfiring, and I'm not quite sure when exactly it was made. I keep it as a display piece.
