I want to tell all of you guys something great. I don't want to make a big deal about this as it will only embarass a good guy, but it's the sorta thing you hope for in the best of all worlds, so...
I posted couple weeks back that Greasy was going to do a project for me, one of my victorys is sorta a "non collector", and i had picked up an old model 10 cheap at a gunshow, so i thought why not make something special out of these two old K frames and have a matched set, thought i would have paws put that beautiful matte blue on them and have the bbls cut from current non matching 5 and 4 to both 3"..do action work, and basicly have myself a "brace" of special pistols.
It's no secret that our friend Greasy is going thru a lot right now with health issues, and the bucks are tight, so i was hoping this would be a good deal for him as well.. And it would have been..
He called tonight, he was so serious about wanting to do this job right that he did some research and investigating the bbl change thing.. I won't bore ya with the details, but this has to do with war time metalurgy and greasy wound up spending a lot of time checking, got with a couple of other guys who have a compined experiance of like a hundred years, all because he wanted to do the job right more than he wanted to make money.. refer back to the title...
Thanks Greasy, and thanks to all you guys who have become my pards..
a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
