Look I Bent My Hammers

Recommended Posts

I finally convinced my gunsmith to profile my ’51 Navy R-M conversion hammers. I really like the appearance and the improvement when shooting.

Fred Lipowicz, a well known gunsmith here in Kansas City. He created a fixture to guarantee uniformity of the hammer profiles. He has done 4 hammers for me so far and they all look all look perfect!

Here is a comparison Factory versus Profiled '51 Cap & Ball hammers

. The profiled hammer has yet to receive the final polish and serrations.

I just received my latest brace of '51 conversions fresh from engraving by Kelly Laster. Check out the engraved hammers!

Tried to bend my hammer one time.... the Dr. said it was impossible... but he was talkin' somethin' else.

 

Good try.

 

However... gettin' back to the topic... over the past few years, with the loss of my eyesight... I have tried to shoot... and re-load my '51 Navies.... ever mornin'. Got to admit... I only average 'bout 5 days a week. Not always here... and I been feelin' poorly... lately.

 

Well... not sure how that stuff coulda happened with them hammers... TB... please keep us updated.

Oh, he takes 'em! And puts on a fine display of 'Pistoleroism' as well.

 

TB, looks like Kelly did a bang up job! I've been resisting the urge, but I might just hafta break down and have him do a little scratchin on some of Fannie's and/or my stuff.
