Default Model 67 after cleanup, pictures

I think it came out nice, when I brought it home I was thinking no hope but, I like it. Cost was $420. out the door. Not factory grips but, what I had laying around.

Do you want to share the process you used to make it look awesome?

My neighbor across the street has a 67 and he literally doesn't believe in ever cleaning a gun. Your before picture looks better than his.

You've done a nice job deserving of a fine revolver.

God bless,
Birdgun

Nice stainless Combat Masterpiece.

I'm looking at one locally, but the guy is asking close to $600.00 for it.

Clean, original grips. No box or docs. I'm waiting him out.

Very nice! My dad picked up a late 70's model 67, recently. Nice shooting revolver. Love those K frame 38's

Well done Sir, well done indeed! The only clean used revolver I bought last year happened to be a very nice 67. It's surprising some times what a little intelligent "elbow grease" can do. Enjoy that one!

Nice 67, and transformation! I find that style of stock quite comfortable. I think they are a knock off of Herrett. I have a 67 no dash. What's not to like about a 67? Bob

Frankly, I prefer the Pachmayr grips to the Sile ones. I have them on my M-66-3 and other guns.

Well, today I installed a set of magna grips on it, just do not seem right. Too much metal overhang I think and, not very comfortable. Could these be for a "J" frame?

Tomorrow I get to snatch up a new to me 67-1 that had formerly been incarcerated in a Florida Penal Institution. It is only hoped mine will come out looking as good as Arm's. Though I seriously doubt it since she was badly scratched with an electric scribe. Great job Arm, you done good. hardcase60

Looks to be stainless rear sight which indicates
a first year production of 1971.

Definitely K frame stocks, but they are incorrect for your gun. Those are PC magnas, your gun should have standard magna style stocks on it. Good job on the transformation!

I picked up this sweet first year 67 a few weeks ago. I just had to have it to go along with it's cousin, the model 15.

I recently picke up a 4" Model 64 in excellent shape but I'd like to improve on the stainless finish. I have some Mother's, will this do the job?

Here is my 67 no dash. Got it about 15 years ago. Badly abused, pitted,
etc. I had it bead blasted. I like the finish. Here left to right:
Gun only left side.
Gun other side with Oliver Ball carved "dog ear" leather.
Gun with Myres #624 holster, Sparks belt, & Benchmade knife.
Gun in replica of Chic Gaylord Combat Speed Scabbard by Lefty Lewis
who does business as Bell-Charter-Oak.
Gun in a Hank Sloan holster by Bucheimer.

Mother's works just fine. That's what I'm using on the "new to me" 4", Model 67-1. For a high shine polish you might have to use a buffing wheel at reduced RPM. Blasphemy, I know, but it works.
