A Hotchkiss? I'm green with envy! I wanna rummage through your gunsafe and see what else you've been hiding.
Have you shot the Colt yet? Mine is ready for a test fire. Ordered a Uberti screw set for it after I was told it would work,... it didn't, metric threads.
I am seriously impressed!
Yeah, I have an 1883 Hotchkiss. It is a military model, I'll have to snap some pictures at some point. It looks pretty much new. Still haven't shot the Colt. The rate that I seem to aquire new stuff exceeds the rate that I can take it out and shoot it. First world problems...
Thanks for the date. I've been lazy but am going to Cody letter that Hotchkiss sometime in the near future.
