LOL! Here's mine again, nothing new - just put some Bill Davis grips on it (Nice!). I found out it's pretty accurate with 158 gr. RNL bullets too! It's sighted in for 148 gr. HBWCs but I might just switch...

Six shots @25 yards offhand.

For those that might not know Bill Davis passed away in april.What a great guy, let alone what he did for PPC shooting.
From what I understand he had gotten his grip patent or whatever back from safariland, I bought a bunch of grips from him last year. I heard someone was contacting his wife to see about purchasing the rights/molds whatever from her to make his grips. Nothing for sure yet.
What I like about his grips is they are easily modified to the individuals taste, just grind away, and shape as you want. Thats all.

Thanks Bill what a contribution to Police shooting.

28-2 with Wichita 4-position rib. Can't I.D. the barrel, don't know who built it, weighs an ounce shy of 4#. Been shot, but very little by me.

Well folks, here's my PPC (I think?) 10-7. I actually picked this up from the used gun room at Cabela's. I didn't quite get the screaming deal some of you guys did but I feel like I did okay.

I have no idea who built it or what year it's from. I found out after I purchased it that it came in as part of an estate sale and (supposedly) it won two state championships in CA. Who knows.

Here's what I know:
- Bull barrel of some sort
- Aristocrat underlug
- Aristocrat sight rail
- Aristocrat (I think) ejector collar
- Action job: trigger pull is about 7.10 DA and 3.5 SA and there's a soft-tipped stop screw in the trigger.
- It's more gun than I can handle, lol
- It looks like it was bead-blasted?







I actually picked this guy up with the intent of using it in ICORE. It's a little heavy for that purpose but I love shooting guns with a bit of history and soul. I've made a few teaks to make it run-n-gun friendly so I'll post new pics soon.

Here's what I'd like to know: (if anyone can help)
- Any guess at the vintage? Serial is 6D44970
- Think it was done by a known PPC smith or was it a garage gun? It's well-sorted either way, I'm just curious.
- How the hell do they get the action this light? There's definitely a custom rebound spring, but the mainspring is even lighter than a Wolffe Type 2 Power Rib when using the same strain screw.
- There's a sharp little pokey bit that sticks out of the front of the crane. Is that added to interact with the underlug somehow? I don't remember seeing it on other Smiths.

Southerngunner- That looks like one I built a long time ago. Not absolutely sure. If so, it has a 1 in 10 Douglas xx premium barrel.

Had this .32 PPC barrel for over a year and sat on it. Finally gave the gun to Andy Horvath in April and had to wait for him to find some Weigand interchangeable from sight bases. They are discontinued but will be made by Bowen. Had the bbl cut to 5" and he slab sided the bbl also. Can change front sights as needed. Used a model 15 frame and used the adjustable sights instead of a rib. Will shoot tomorrow. Put on a set of Keith Brown grips on it.

The other is a 25-2 cut to 3 1/2" with a Weigand front sight base also. Not sure yet if I want it blued or hard chromed.

Both are stamped Horvath Custom and the caliber on the other side. I'll shoot this tomorrow also. Larry

New Years bump. I picked this up in a trade on Friday. Contacting Wichita, they no longer make the Aristocrat sight, unfortunately. (The new owner is only interested in making their pistol/rifle designs).

I'm looking at grip options now as the Pachmyrs are quite thin for my tastes.

Some of you might have seen this one but I thought I would share it again!

The gun has a BO-MAR rib and a 4 inch barrel instead of the typical 6 inch barrel. It is also is chambered in .357 magnum instead of .38 spl. The action is smooth but not too light and very crisp. I added the Farrant stocks I had in the woodpile waiting for the right gun.

Well, took the Schneider to Andy Horvath to cut the barrel and leave the name 'Schneider custom" on it. Ended up at 5". Took the rib off and put a Weigand interchangeable front sight base on it. Since it started as a model 15, I put original rear sights back on it. It lightened the gun some for shooting the double action league coming up in April thru May. The last picture is the gun before Andy had it. Larry
