Nice firearms. My favorite is this beauty; my lovely 1851 Colt Reb Nord Navy 44. Caliber Revolver Set. :)

That is one absolutely beautiful black powder revolver, Istvan.  I love the look of the old Colt Navy.  But the old west pistol design I really want to get a hold of is the Colt 1873 Single Action Army.  I don't think I'd have the patience to reload a Colt Navy.

Speaking of the Colt SAA design, I just acquired my first revolver.  It's loosely based (at least in appearance) on the SAA, and it's a special edition Ruger Single Six Convertible (meaning it has two cylinders one for .22LR and the other for .22 WMRF).  I don't have photos of it yet, but this is what it looks like:

Oh, that one is also a really beautiful piece. Upload the photo when you have it. :) And yes, loading the Colt Navy is taking time and its a bit messy, but if you ran out of ammo, you can make them anytime in your garage. And a 44 cal. is still a 44 cal. :) My next piece will be a non-lethal stuff, the JPX Jet Protector, which is also used by the U.S. Law Enforcement agencies. I'm really curious for that one as I heard only good about that one, good for smaller crowd control and has an excellent stopping power. And as we have a pretty great "illegal immigrant" problem here in Budapest and it will escalate, we've started to arm ourselves for every possible scenario. So I think a non-lethal stuff also will come in handy this time as I prefer violence as the very last option.

Nice pieces. And finally my police grade crowd control piece has arrived, the brand new JPX-4 Jet Defender with her canister magazines.

I just sold my late father's 1911 Colt 45 government issue originally sold to the Russians in 1916 with Cyrrilic writing. I had the holster, three clips and ammo in the original box. I even had an authentication letter from Colt.

That is just too cool, Gertie.  But, don't you miss it for the connection to your family?

Yes, I do. I had to give up a lot more than the gun, although that one was harder than most. I know it was special to my father.

If I can download the photos from my tablet, I'll post them here. I even photographed the authentication letter.

I'd love to see both.  Wish I'd known you were selling such a gem.  I might have considered it.

I didn't want to post it here. I didn't think it was appropriate. My neighbor is a retired corrections officer who has bought and sold a few guns and he knew someone who could put it up on gunbroker.com for me.

I didn't even know my father had it until I was cleaning out his bureau and found some loose bullets in a drawer. Then more loose bullets in another draw. Then a box of bullets. And then I picked up a plastic bag with something heavy wrapped in red flannel. There it was. I didn't know even then what I was holding until my cousin found the papers sitting casually on the buffet. Phew. I was going to give it to my cousin's husband who collects guns.

If you PM me with your email address, I'll send you the photos. Feel free to post the photos of the gun, but not the authentication letter because it has my father's name on it.

Including a whole series of the Western-themed scenes engraved into that distributor special version of the Ruger Single-Six Convertible.  Here's one of those photos:

Well, everyone, below are the photos which Margaret has agreed to share with us fortunate souls here.  Per her request, I will not post the authentication letter from Colt.  But I can share with you that the extraordinary M1911 example pictured here was one of 5,000 shipped to Imperial Russia on September 2, 1916.  Absolutely amazing.

Thanks for sharing, Margaret.

Beautiful pieces, especially the 1892 model with the traditional level.

In the meantime I've also acquired a new beauty, a Barnett Ghost 360. She is an elegant, beautiful, very powerful, very silent, and well designed sniper crossbow with an illuminated 3x32 scope;
