    Aesthetically , they don't work for me. But the design is great and they fit very well. I haven't been able to fire it yet, so jury is still out if the grips are as good as I think they will be.

    Trigger pull on my digital Lyman gauge SA 4 lbs 3 oz. DA 9 lbs 1 oz. This after dry firing the crap out of it for 2 days. Pretty good for a GP100. [​IMG]

    Pawn shop find...S&W 586. 1984 model. It has some muzzle wear probably from being holstered, but just makes it cooler. Love it

    No, I carry an imitation Pakistan knife. I hope to soon be able to get a real Pakistan, not a fake. He has many Randall knives. He's just got another new one that I'm anxious to see, it's got a teal handle.

    BigB6, what barrel length is that. Very cool 586. One of my favorite Smith models.

    It's the 6" barrel. I bought it so I can have a shot at a pig during small game season in SC. That and it's awesome & I wanted it. :)

    Pretty much the justification I've used for any gun I've bought.

    Thanks, yea he had got it for me cuz I had told him I liked Clint Eastwoods western movies. Now im not really into it anymore. I've thought about selling it and getting something I can have fun with that I really like. I just can't bring myself to let it go lol.

    Haha, I ran about 20rds through this right after I got it and have never shot it since. Ive seen the buffalo bore stuff lol, I'm sure it'd be a blast to shoot, if I do ever take this thing out again.

    Until today, I'd bought and sold two S&W Model 57s.
    They just didn't feel good enough to grow on me...
    then I found this'n that was owned by a retired competitive shooter.

    S&W Model 57 no dash 41 Magnum, countersunk chambers and pinned barrel
    Action/Trigger Job by Jack Weigland (he's no longer doing them)
    Jack Weigland rear sight leaf, gold-like insert in front sight
    Fuzzy Farrant exotic wood grips (he passed away, was a CA cop)

    This thing has a light, crisp SA trigger, and the best DA trigger I have ever felt!
    The grips feel like they were made just for me. [​IMG]

    And the sickness continues! S&W 24-3 in 44spl. It might be a Lew Horton, need to call them and confirm the serial# but either way I like it!

    Very nice 24-3. I saw one very similar at the formyl I saw one very similar at the Fort Mill Cabelas a couple weeks ago. Was tempted. Well done.

    Thanks. So far, I like it a lot. I carried it for a couple days. Only put 50 rounds through it. It carries like a Detective Special...about the same size. It's a solid snubbie.
