Other small issues are some screws and the grip screw. The grip screw is dilled out and new thread and a new screw are made. Last item was the front right. That was missing a bulb shape on top. That I made on the lathe
(also with files) and after that milled two flat sides. Looks much more complete.
At first I was sceptic as how this would turn out. A antique revolver with new part was what I suspected. But the look and
feel of the complete revolver was already really different as with missing parts. Next would be making the parts old, adding some dents, losing sharp edges and have it rust etc. But the owner wanted to do that himself and did a good job!
So it can be rewarding to take a gun with a lot of missing parts and recreate them.
And my reward? Of course we agreed some money at front and I leaned and had fun. And what we agreed was changed
in this little pepperbox. Not working, missing springs and parts but complete on the outside...almost. So this is a next little project.
With thank to John from www.westernarms.nl
for having faith in me, for the good contact between us, the little peperbox and for alowing me to show this process on my site.
The last diashow are pictures I got from John. He made the parts looking correctly old. The revolver is now how it should be. A rare and fine looking complete
