Hahaha! Jeez, I'm not that numb!

Those are really cool, Rod -- love the lightweight but would need a Bisley grip to minimize damage to myself -- LOL!

All very beautiful handguns. Rod is that 454 cerakoted and the cylinder polished stainless?

The 454 has a matte blue job and polished stainless cylinder, Muddy that little 44 is really nice to carry, it weighs in at 2.2lbs loaded and even with the 3.5" barrel it's accurate

This is KRal's Reeder 475. This is one of the most beautiful revolvers I've seen. I was lucky enough to get to hold this beauty on a past forum hunt.

Thank's, David! I've been a little busy lately and not able to post photos with my phone. Maybe I'll get an opportunity before the thread fades away.

Kral, thats a really beautiful handgun. What was the barrel length before the MB? And how is the recoil with a full load?

David why did you have to post that pic?

Let me tell ya' Craig, it is unbelievable. It handles as well as it looks. If I was in the market for a revolver, that is what I would want.

Thanks,
Before the brake......

...it had a 7 1/2" barrel.

Now with the brake....

...it's sporting a 9" tube.

I used it for three years without a brake and it was starting to take a tole on my wrist; with 385gr at 1500fps. With the same load, now; it's like a 44 mag. I let my 14yr son shoot it now.

A trio of FA model 83s. The top one is a 44 mag, 7.5 inch barrel. Sent to Magnaport for 4 ports, trigger job, and T'SOB base and rings. Leupold 2x scope.

The middle one is a 45 caliber, 6 inch barrel. Has cylinders in 454, 45 Colt, 45acp and 45 WM.

The bottom one is my first FA in 454. 7.5 inch magnaported barrel. Leupold base and rings and a Leupold 2x scope.

I had a 83 in 41 mag, but saw no real use for it, so instead on changing it to 44 mag, I sold it.

Ruger Bisley model in 475 Linebaugh built by Nightowl Customs in Utah. This is sorta my dream gun. I wanted a 475 Linebaugh that uses the original cutdown 45-70 brass. This gun is with Reeder now getting a few minor issues fixed. I have been shooting a Rimrock 400 grain and HS6 powder with excellent results.

Ruger SBH. Started out as a beat up 10 1/2 inch, I got for a song. Sent to Dave Clements for a massage. He shortened the barrel to 6.5 inch, action job, and installed a Bowen rear and a Patridge front. The grips are from Dick Thompson and in American Holly. He then did a fantastic job on the refinishing.
