Any nice 1911 or Colt SAA considered Are you a custom revolver guy? I've got an Old Model 357 Ruger revolver with the original lockwork that was converted to 44 special by Cosby Custom Gunsmithing. That would be neat enough, but he also welded up and recontoured the topstrap like a SAA. He case-colored the frame and hammer, shortened the barrel and ejector rod, swapped in a steel gripframe that he round-butted, and made the custom grips. The owner's name is engraved on the backstrap. A lot of work.
