I’ll give you gun pr0n.
Feast thine eyes:
This is just one pic of many of the nicest, purtiest, pieces of hardware I’ve seen, since… forever.
A friend of mine is selling it, & this is not an advert for him, as I am a buyer for it until it gets too spendy for my moth-ridden wallet. Those that know me as a cheap-assed varmint (& they are correct) would be stunned at the level to which I have bid this item.
An 1873 first generation Colt SAA, built in 1884, impeccably refinished many years later. With carved ivory grips.
I held this puppy in my hand & something clicked, & I’m not sure what it was; probably my brain snapping back to a day when this gun was new, & I was its owner.
Dream on Alice.
If you’ve got the cake to drop on something like this, you would not be disappointed, & I will envy you to my last breath.
Did I mention the carved ivory grips?
