Years ago when my daughter was younger, in the Anime days, she very excitedly showed me TRIGUN, saying it looked like the type of guns I like (I have the real Model 3s'), but, it did catch my eye and wondered if someone really built a modern stainless steel, kicker of a large caliber top break ....

When I saw Doc44 post his picture on this thread I remembered that S&W Forum has a master Art Collector. I had the privilege to meet Bill at the S&WCA’s 40th Anniversary Meeting in Tucson, AZ in 2010. It was there that I saw just a small portion of his art collection. It is even more impressive in person.

I took the picture of his .44 and turned it into a few “art” versions…
As it appears in real life:

…and art versions:










Again, none of these compare to the real thing. -Bill

Some of the image hosting sites, like "Photobucket", will make prints, or even stretched canvas panels of images that you post there. I don't have any personal experience with these, but have seen the advertisments when I'm using their hosting service.

Best Regards, Les

My choice for industrial art would be a S&W Model 1917 or 1937.

IMO one of the very best subjects for art in the S&W revolver lineup is the 3.5” M27-2.
This is my former Utah Highway Patrol Model 27 – shipped May 18, 1967. 50 years old!
