Engraved SP 101

Posted by on Oct 2, 2014 in Revolvers | 0 comments

Is there anything better than an engraved gun?  I have a certain affection for them because the man responsible for sending me down the gunsmithing path was a Colt Engraver.  His work was unbelievable! This SP 101 is a Talo edition.  We did the trigger work and provided the Big Dot sight to make it shoot as good as it looks.  If you might want some engraving done, please contact us.  We have done several project guns in the past and they are...

Best Revolver Questions

Posted by on Jul 29, 2011 in Revolvers | 0 comments

I am often asked my opinion on the best revolver available today.  Certainly we have in many ways seen the peak of the great revolvers in one sense because we have ushered in the semi-auto age.  However, in recent years many companies have begun to market new and improved revolvers.  Smith & Wesson has even begun selling blued revolvers again!! With polymer choices, .410’s from Smith and Taurus, and the alloy guns made for concealed...
