Was able to move one step closer in the personal quest when this OM 44 flat top came back form Jim Stroh. The gun was in nice shape to begin with but Jim did his Master Tune, Master Refinish and reblue. shorten the barrel to 5 1/2", Jims sculpted front sight, double dowel the steel ERH and fit the brass grip frame that Cary skinned in Macassar ebony. David Clements provided the OM bisley spurred hammer. Everything you've read about Jim's work being top notch is true. He does great work and is a true gentleman to deal with.

It is examples of work like your Stroh 44 that causes everyone to understand the excellence that only a master gunsmith can bring to any platform of wood and steel.

Stunning, Gorgeous!

Another very nice one, Robb!

I've been too busy thawing water troughs and packing hay to the critters for the last week or so.
Ain't it the truth! I haven't seen a cold snap like this in my 15 years in Oregon.

Robb,

Great looking .44! I especially like the front sight he makes. I'd like to do something real similar with my gun, now that I know she really shoots too!

Absolutely gorgeous gun Robb! Hard to pick out what I like best about it. The front sight is very tasteful. What else can I saw but WOW!

Great piece. I am now in final email exchanges with Jim on my early M29 conversion to a proper 45 Colt with Jim. The work will start the first of the year. I can't wait...

My current Stroh is a Single Six 32 pictured here on the bottom. As you can see it has been shot quite a bit. Deadly accurate, its one of my absolute favorite sixguns.

Sam, they are a quartet of custom Single Sixes. From the top:
A 5 shot 327 Federal Magnum by Harton.
A 32 Magnum Single Six by Harton.
A 22LR/22magnum by Harton with a barrel band barrel.
A Stroh 32 magnum 5.5 inch.

Actually, I had to have Harton recut the trigger job on the Stroh sixgun since I sorta wore it out....

All four are impressively accurate and Im likely to be carrying any one of these on the Ranch these days.

Robb I have had the pleasure of shooting 3 of those revolvers and they are ll sweet but I was really tempted to steal he that stainless 22 Nimrod, it was on of the coolest revolvers I have ever touched!
