this past Saturday) and checked it out. No magazine, but the reason it was consigned for "parts" is because the trigger would not work at all, with or without magazine inserted. I looked at it carefully then on a hunch I bought the pistol. AFTER it was paid for I borrowed the smallest Allen wrench they had and backed out a screw that was blocking the rear of the trigger (you can see the d&t hole under the trigger guard)...voila! the trigger works!

The icing on the cake was the 3 Model 41 mags they consigned separately for $15 each. Total was just under a C-note, tax included.

My CMMG dedicated 22 AR transformation is complete.

Still using the original lower, buffer tube, bolt assembly, handguards, and barrel.

I just picked up a Remington V3 Tac13. I’ve been looking for one for awhile and picked up a NIB one locally with a bunch of goodies to go along with it. Haven’t shot it yet, but soon…

Two Sig Romeo5 red dots. One used to swap out the open reflex Sightron on my 617-6. Second waiting to find a home.

Waited four weeks to get this on backorder from an online retailer. I won't mention the name, but doubt I'll buy from them again. Seems they charged my credit card the day I ordered, so now I end up paying interest on an account I usually zero out every month.

Went to the CGCA collector gun show in Colorado last weekend and found another Remington handgun. This is a Model 1891 single shot target pistol, but not just any Model 1891. It was reworked by Harry Pope with a Pope left hand twist barrel, chambered in .22 Short. Also has a lightened hammer, overtravel set trigger, and is threaded for a suppressor for indoor gallery match shooting.
In March I was fortunate to pick up another rare 1891 done by Arthur Hubalek, Pope's apprentice. So finding this one done by what many consider the finest barrel maker in the 20th century was exciting.




Pope above, and my Hubalek below.

Went to a small local show last weekend and took my near mint nickel M37 with the thought of trading it. I ran into a friend that swaps and traded to expand his collection and he had an unfired 1953 Colt Cobra. My M37 was calling his name and his Cobra was calling mine so we both walked away happy.

I put a 4" Blue Python on layaway yesterday. I was pretty impressed with it. They bought out four for me to look at. I picked this one for no particular reason.



Not a great picture. The camera really brings out the packing oil that's all over it. It will clean up with a little Ren Wax.

Filled out the paperwork today on a Model 60 Ladysmith from an auction site. Can't take possession until Monday. It is a project and I will post before and after pics when it is complete.

Two weeks later I can play show and tell.

Last month I did something dangerous. I navigated to a gun auction site that frequently includes police seizures and former LE sidearms and scrolled through the revolvers. There, for what seemed like a very reasonable price, was a Model 60 with rosewood magnas. It also had visible scratches down both sides of the frame. On the premise that “that’ll polish out” I bid and won. Shipping time, the receiving FFL’s schedule and my travel meant that it was around a week before I was able to examine it in hand.







Sure enough the scratches seemed superficial. It looked like someone had scraped the frame with a screwdriver. While the salesman was processing the paperwork I checked the bore. It was caked with something. So were the chambers. There was a layer of fine rust on the hammer and trigger. Inside the yoke I noticed a smear of what appeared to be blood and it all came together from over 40 years ago when I saw it first. If this had been a blued gun I’d have recognized it from the missing bluing that the hasty person who scraped dried blood (and maybe brains) from the frame and cylinder would have wiped off. I probably wouldn’t have bought it. But stainless holds up better and I am not superstitious. Our enlightened overlords in Springfield are concerned that I might do something rash with this gun that I wouldn’t with the one in my pocket at the time, so back it went behind the counter. The FFL’s schedule and a holiday weekend meant I had to pick it up 4 days later.

Once home I removed the grips and placed it in a cake pan full of hydrogen peroxide. It bubbled for two days as biological matter floated out of the barrel. I let it air dry and took a few swipes with a Scotchbrite pad, which polished out most of the scratches and also reduced the “Ladysmith” marking to a faint hint of its former glory. I guess that makes it a ghost gun.

Back in the pan, this time with a 50-50 acetone/ATF mixture for three more days. Out of the bath and hosed down with Gunscrubber the sideplate screws backed out easily. There was a film of rust over the insides, but only the hammer, trigger and the very base of the hand required more than a light application of a brass brush or brass wool to clean up. An old .22 bore brush and dental picks topped by Kroil-soaked patches and a generous application of elbow grease had most of the stuff out within a half hour.
The case colors began to emerge from the patina on the hammer and trigger but additional soaking in Kroil and attention from some brass wool was needed to get all the caked-on crud out of the nooks and crannies. The hammer has some pits on the left side and I may replace it for cosmetics’ sake. Function was unaffected.





I’m not as big a fan of stainless guns as is Mrs. Buford and I’ve never kept a nickel gun for long, but this shiny thing may have a new home inside my waistband or in a Roy Baker pancake.

Got this on GB. Sig P226 'short' - made in Germany by their Custom Shop prior to their closure. Intended for the US market but never quite got here.
Several styles are now out on GB.

I wanted a .22 practice snub, and the price was fair...for the times.

That’s a pretty cool shipped location. What barrel length did he order?

Default I picked up a like new Winchester model 1907 SL the other day.

This particular gun dates to 1919. I have dies ammo and brass for it and have test fired it. The price was good as well. I am pretty pumped.

I saw this a few weeks ago in my LGS. I was back in there today and commented about it still being there and told him I’ll hold out for a price reduction. He shot me a nice price and it went home with me. I already own a Government MKII but was looking for a MKII lower to pair with a TacSol or Volquartson upper. Whats your latest purchase?

Brand new? If so, that’s a deal and a half, I see them going for 600+.

Saw one live, and in person, about a month ago, beautiful gun.

Sort of downsizing and having loads of 1911’s, I passed.

Yup, $479 brand new. Tombstone Tactical... There are a couple of online outlets even cheaper, but I was able to pick it up in person at TT while we were driving through Phoenix on Saturday and avoid shipping.

Just a moment...

I was considering a .45 version (which are running ~$550), but I already have several 1911s in .45 and wanted to eventually use this one with my 9mm suppressor.

I tried getting some made from another source, but unfortunately he isn’t available currently.

The wait seems to be around 12 hours.

In all seriousness, I got exceptionally lucky. Last week I placed an “order” on the website to get on the waiting list, and I received an e-mail the next morning with a photo of these grips, asking if I wanted them. When I called to pay I learned they had just finished a batch, so I was at the right place at the right time.

Just picked up an unfired 2nd Gen Colt 1862 Pocket Navy.

Not sure why; I’m not into black powder so I probably will never shoot it, but it is just so dern pretty.

Sounds kinda like how I ended up married…

On Saturday, May 4th, I walked to the range and had a nice time shooting various handguns. Afterward, I was standing near the front of the store. In walked a man wanting to sell guns. I bought a little Colt Woodsman 4 1/2 Sport Model, ca. 1948. $250 OTD. Had to borrow $20 from my CFO. Paid it back yesterday. One of those "no interest" loans. It is an extremely accurate shooting pistol!!! Sincerely. bruce.

Picked up a new in box 2013 S&W M&P15 811000 a couple of weeks back that I found while looking around online, trying to find a S&W Sport II to replace one I had sold several years ago.

I purchased a Lipsey's 432UC and built a 8" New Frontier 9mm PCC with a side charger and last rd. hold open. It takes Glock mags. I put a Holosun red dot on it with magpul flip-up back up sights.That thing is just a kick in the butt.

Nice to see Patrick and Co are alive and well. I think I have a pair for my Python on order but haven’t hear from him in about a year.

A mint set of Coltwood grips for a 1968 LW Commander I’ve owned for 22 years. Got them for a song and unlike many sets, they didn’t shrink- so they fit.

I believe that is a "Holden" franken-pistol consisting of some leftover German Master Shop parts Holden bought up after the German Master Shop was closed, and assembled here in The USA with assorted American and standard German SIG parts.

But it isn't a German Master Shop Pistol X Short pistol.

Edit: I enlarged your photo and Holden appears on the frame which identifies the pistol as a Holden franken-gun rather than a German SIG Mastershop pistol.

The Attic, a once highly regarded Master Shop dealer, has been misrepresenting them and selling them as Master Shop.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you should be made aware.
