  2. Had a couple of pards ask if I had one that matched this finish...I have another one just like it but with the post 1890's style frame and I paid extra for fire bluled screws but blue finish etc like the first one...
  3. The frame is deep blue. This was a custom option by the Colt Custom Shop since Colt's's standard SAA finishes were Color Case Hardened or Nickel. I have never had much luck with Nickel finishes but I wanted something a bit different so went with the blue. Its a bit hard to see in the pics because the revolver is still in the original factory grease. Tinpan McGurk

      Try it again - I cleaned some out

  6. Smokin D is correct about Popular vote I made a typo and fixed it ..my source for the stats is the American President Project and the quotes are directly from newspapers and from Civil War Trust... point being he did not win the popular vote additional sources for info: "Lincoln at the Gates of History" - Flood "Bloody Roads South" - Trudea "Team of Rivals" - Kerns "The Fredericksburg Campaign" F. O"Reilly "Tragic Years 1860-1865" Angle and Miers "For Cause and Comrades" McPherson "Recollections of the Civil War" Dana "A Rising Thunder" Wheeler "They Have Killed Papa Dead" Pitch "Kiling Lincoln" O'Reilly "Behind the Scenes 30 years a Keckly Slave and Four Years in the Whitehouse" "The Fate of War" Schultz "The Civil War" Transcript - Burns
  7. A man failed to win the popular vote and in fact only won 39% of it but won 59% of the electoral vote due to the concentration of population in the states he won..in fact he received a smaller percentage of the popular vote than nearly all the losers. A large segment of the citizens felt he was not the legitimate president because he only carried 18 states all the others voted against the candidate He was accused of implementing unconstitutional measures He was one of the most unpopular presidents of his day...upon taking office he had what would equate to a modern approval rating of less than 25% Major news media hounded him, satirized him, made fun of his looks, called him incompetent, a gorilla etc a few examples - The NEW YORK TRIBUNE joked that he "may live a hundred years without having so good a chance to die", The CHICAGO TIMES, branded one of his policies "..a monstrous usurpation, a criminal wrong, and an act of national suicide.....the time is brief when we shall have a DICTATOR proclaimed", The NEW YORK HERALD stated "The politicians have again proclaimed this PRESIDENTIAL-PIGMY as their nominee...." , the NEW YORK WORLD said "...the OBSCENE APE is about to be deposed.." Accusations of election fraud and shock from the losing party a NY times head line "THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION THE REPUBLICANS IN THEIR TRIUMPH.....THE LAMENTATIONS OF THE DEFEATED" another headline read ...Report of alderman from the City of New York "it is currently reported and believed that there exists in this city an organized body...who intend, on the day of election, to obstruct the polls...and challenge very voter they can in order to keep back the electors and delay voting on that day...." Many citizens felt he was not qualified for the office Many of his own cabinet felt they were better qualified to hold office One well known "progressive" activist called him a "First rate, second rate man" So many believed that he did not win the election and was not "legitimate" that some states moved to secede... He put forward the principle that IN A REPUBLIC the citizens can not decide they want to leave because they don't like the results of an election...In a Republic it is the citizens duty that if they do not agree with the results of an election to convince their peers that they made a mistake and vote against the office holder in the next election...thus is the way of Republics. Military leaders ridiculed him and called him a fool or the "original gorilla" (a direct quote) Later when his party came to him and told him he was LOSER and that to avoid losing the next election he should suspend the election, a power granted to him by congress, he refused stating that the government of ANY Republic that was afraid of the voice of the people should not govern The states that disagreed seceded from the Union an action severely criticized by "progressives" The man was Abraham Lincoln The states that seceded became the Confederate States an action that has been criticized by progressives up until the latest election These things are not made up by me they are historic fact...anyone can look them up... A history lesson for those that don't agree with the results of the election Tinpan McGurk
  8. Try IMR 4227 works for both subsonic and supersonic or H110 works best for supersonic Tinpan McGurk
  9. IMR3031, 4198, 4195 and Trailboss depending on what is available. I like Trailboss but to me it can be a bit expensive when you consider that they don't give you a full pound for the price and 45-70 eats a lot of powder. The IMR powders do seem to pack more recoil even in my Sharps heavy buffalo rifle which weights in at over 9 lbs. I shoot the Sharps, a Henry all Weather and an 1886. TInpan McGurk
  10. Thanks Pards, Sounds like its not worth messing with it. Tinpan McGurk
