I think somebody said .45...seems there was some discussion of putting stuff together, too!
Here's an example of why I am known in some circles as WECSOG. This was a stripped Super Blackhawk receiver; stripped both in terms of missing its parts and in terms of having its barrel threads stripped out. I put it together piecemeal from various parts...most not Super Blackhawk, some not even Blackhawk, some not even Ruger. It's now a .45 ACP. Barrel length is 10-3/4". I'm not sure what the barrel even came from; some kind of rifle I think.
Not pretty. I appreciate pretty guns, but I don't build pretty guns.;)

Good looking gun to me WECSOG. Just the looks of that .45 would clear bad hombres out of any late night honky tonk around here...looks like bar sweeping serious business! :confused:
Thanks! My original plan was to make it a snubby, but when a friend offered me that barrel stub I decided not to shorten it.

I understand thoughts on making it a snubby. Here is another 45 I have...Uberti Cimarron. I bought this one on Gun Broker with the intention of making a snubby out of it.

When it arrived the gun looked to nice too mess with. As far as I got was take the ejector rod assembly off. Years later now and that's the way it remains. I shoot it without the ejector rod...just going to leave it this way as it balances in my hand so well. o_O

Sorry 357; I just saw this. It shoots quite well; much better than I had any right to expect!

Here's one I just put together today. It's a S&W Model 10 that I bought from J&G without a barrel, then put a barrel on it. It was originally a snubby, and a snubby it remains.
I actually bought two of them, but I'm not putting the other one back stock. It's still gonna be a plain, basic, utilitarian working gun (as the Model 10 was intended to be); just a little different than most.

Where the West Begins.

I’m pretty sure that’s what Deputy Sheriff John Friendly had holstered back when such a thing could be believed about badge & uniform.

Have to use his nightstick held horizontal in the classroom to keep all the nine-year boys at bay.

But, (ahem) my being in Texas, well, . . .357 (with a 6” barrel) was for your wife. That piece shown would have had to have been chambered in .41 Remington for believability.
