Nice work!

But, is this #2 or #3?

This thread is #2 (yep, I had put #3 in the heading - tried to change it but can't)

Here is #3. 44 Mag with a companion 44 Spec cylinder.

BTW, I am running out of room on my hoster (images that I can post) and I will soon be needing to clear some out for more project albums. Most of these will be in that lot so if you would want to keep any of these my suggestion is to copy/paste them into your own folder you create on your C-Drive.

Some of you guys leave me in awe of your metal working skills. How neat to be a machinist, and have the tools needed to practice the craft!
