everything except the '73 is well broken in....the bottom 2 are origional non reproductions, that still get fired on "range day".

Nice collection Leroy...!!

Care to eloborate on which gun manufacturers we are looking at...?

I see the '73...is that a Colt above it ? What caliber ?

How about the shotgun and top break revolver...?

many thanks !

the SAA is an early EAA Bounty Hunter (ser# 122x) in .45LC.......front sight filed down for 50-60 yd. shooting.
the top break is a 1905 S&W model 4 in .38 S&W that still sees fire on range days.
the shotgun is a very early steel barreled coach model by N.R. Davis and Sons of Brooklyn NY.
dated at 1882 by Dixie Gun Works, but they missed the mfr. date on the S&W by 5 yrs so who knows?
although its 12 guage it was made before mfrs felt guage stamping necessary.......the only marking is the ser.#

Nice old hammer double coach gun Bama.

I have a Colt 1882 coach 10 gauge. I used to shot it with reduced loads to save the stock from cracking. However, due to an AICD implant, no more hard-recoil shooting.

I must ask what "AICD" is
if it's angioplasty stents then i'm in deep ca-ca because i've got 5 that are less than 90 days old............

AICD Automatic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator. Monitors heart rhythm as a Pacemaker. In addition, will deliver a shock if the heart attempts to fibrillate. My concern with a sudden impact to my chest could cause the AICD to malfunction or a heart probe to loosen, or some other trauma to the device.

thanks......

my only complaint with the '73 is that my wife is trying to take it away from me and I may literally have to buy another to avoid total warfare here.
I fell in love with it the first time I pulled the trigger!
So did my wife........on range day, she has to shoot a few tubes before I can...
+/- 300-350 rounds thru it so far......definitely a keeper

Heck of a rifle!!!!
