Default California Revolver Porn

Revolvers, Revolvers, Revolvers,
some of the most beautiful guns in the world.
With some of the most beautiful grips in the world.
What makes them shine and sets them apart from the run of the mill, are the grips that the owners mix and match them with.
Here's my set of Sterling Silver
engraved grips on my S&W M15 nickel.
I'd love to see othes who love their guns and grips,
so if you've got it, show it!
BTW that's a $10,000 peso bill (that's almost $1,000 US)

I can honestly say you see something new every day. I have never seen Sterling silver handgun grips. Where would you get such a thing, it might be cool to have a set for a BBQ gun.

Where would you get them?

Well,,,, I'll give you a couple of choices,,,

#1. you lay in wait by a small trail near the Rio Grande, and wait for the local coyote and his mules to come by and charge him, import duty.

or,

#2. eBay

your choice!

Nice going guys,

Thanks for sharing, they're beautiful revolvers.

NATRAB,

I love your nickel too!
If my Hard drive hadn't crashed, I'd be the owner of that beauty.
If you ever decide to let it go, I'll be first in line.

DRIFTER, If you come across another, let me know.

Guys, keep these beautiful proud wheelies coming.
You can't help but love 'em.

Ron

Are you sure? Last time I was in Mexico I bought a paid of shorts with a credit card, the bill came with the Mexican currency listed as $45,000 pesos which added about $15.00 to my visa bill. A Coke was 3,000 pesos or $1.00 US. It was 10 years ago though

Well there are new peso's and old pesos. The old pesos are worth nothing by the thousands. New pesos are worth about 9.4 cents US. Making a 10,000 peso bill close to $940 US.

And Aerosoar, I noticed you're in the monterey bay. I live in south Santa Cruz and work all over the Monterey bay, so if you ever wanted to put a few rounds through it I'd be happy to meet you. I'm still working on breaking the action in.

Jeez, I am jealous.

I had a S&W 686-6-shot for about a week before it totally failed and got returned.

One day...

Did you plate that gun? If not its a 686 as it would have to be blue to be a 586.

I know I didn't, but it's possible. I know it says 586 on it, so you S&W heads probably know more than I. The plating is flawless though and the gun is beautiful.

Not the prettiest finish, but it is a pocket piece.

Aerostar - That M34 is great! Classic profile, looks like something Sam Spade would carry.

Here's another one of my favs.


Model 696 no dash with factory boots.
