Both of these guns were in bad shape. Mechanically sound but rough on the outside. We completely re-did the finish and got rid of the small pits and scuffs. Both now ready for another 100 years.
First here is the Colt Trooper 3, in 357 Magnum. Often called the "poor man's Python". Not sure what the grips are but they are sound. It should run somewhere in the $1600 range but is specially priced at $895. Any smears you might see are some oil still on it from the bluing or reflections of the camera.

Next is a Marlin chambered in 30 GNR, our North American Hunter. The good part of the 30 GNR other than it's power is you can simply run 30-30 thru it and the brass is fire formed into 30 GNR. Or buy the dies which we have and load your own. The 30 GNR beats the 300 Savage and comes within 200 FPS of the 308 Winchester. The gun has been completely refinished and slicked up inside and out. It has been engraved with a Moose scene on one side and an elk scene on the other. The barrel and magazine are finished in a soft satin Vapor Honed finish. The stock has been completely re-done and a Decelerator pad added. New XS sights have been added to the gun. it is smooth and accurate too. The North American Hunter series shown on the site is $1895 on the customer's base gun. With us furnishing the base gun the price should be around $2750. It is specially priced at $1895.

I picked this one up really cheap at the gun show. The guy said all I need is a new cylinder

That one might take a little longer

By the way that is obviously an older gun. What caliber?

I think that is a K-38 made before the Model 15/14 nomenclature.

You can always tell the earlier S&Ws with that

My idea of the perfect rifle.
