That's nice Giz!
Pretty case coloring on that target hammer. Also, is that a special hammer spur - or is it just in the angle of the picture? It has an almost oval appearance...........

VM...it's a stock hammer spur. Must be the angle of the camera.

We have been looking for one of those .45 Targets for a long time. Glad you got yours -- its purty.

Good catch, Giz. Sounds like this won't be the last N frame of the year either.

Jerry, my old Amigo....How ya' been?

I posted this one because I wanted to see how much play it'd get. Funny thing, it's not a common gun. But one that slips under the radar. So many folks here are focused on the "Hot Commodity" guns that every so often I post one that isn't...

And yet....should be........

Another handsome revolver, almost too pretty to shoot.

Almost...

I think I just added another one to my "someday" list.

Actually, given a moment's reflection, I realized this model is already on the list. So I guess I just bumped it a few steps closer to the top. We'll see how that works out as the year wears on.

Very nice.

David, ~Thanks....

The quote " Collectors " are getting melded into the folks that chase current values, Sad really.

For those not interested in chasing the "Investment"...there are a hell of a lot of interesting guns to go and chase after.

Very nice giz, very nice. I have one like it shipped in '55. That's a triple '55 for me, Model of 1955, shipped in 1955, I was born in 1955.

For Kurac, mine has the W mainspring....

Thanks for sharing, giz....

That's a sweet gun. Good for you! Did you get any of the goodies with it?

I am glad that someone is finding guns that are worth going after. I haven't been that lucky yet this year, but it's early.
