31 caliber revolver "Update"

Recommended Posts

I went to a local gun show Sat. and came home with a new toy.  I spotted this ugly chunk of metal and wood way back on the back of a table and when I picked it up, it was even uglier but couldn't pass it up for what they wanted for it :D.

It's a Dixie Gun Works kit and looks like whoever bought it originally just took it out of the box and put it together. I either got a diamond in the rough or a gun shaped paperweight but I'm going to see what I can do with it..

That'll make a nice one if you do your part.

I bought a pepper box kit there and put it together when I was a kid. It looks better than yours, but not by much.

A lot of spit and polish, more woodworking on the grips, and that will be a good one!

But time...a lot of time. At least it would be for me.

Do you know what size rb it shoots?

It will probably be .320.   The balls I cast for my rifle drop at .313 and they just barely slide into the chambers.

Know nothing about the kit, but the .31 worked well back in the old West days.

bigun asked today how this project was coming along so I thought I'd share with you guys.  It's actually coming out better than I was expecting.
