That is beautiful.

You really need to sell or trade me that 1917.

How about a S&W 625 3"?

or a

S&W 66-1 2 1/2"?

or an

Astra Terminator 2 1/2" .44 Magnum?

or what do you like?

I too like the high horse power 357 mag snubs. I tried the small ones 340,640 j-frames along with the 19 and 66,but to truly shoot one with effect in a snub the 686 trumps the lesser smaller light guns even the 19 and 66. .The 686 has enough weight and control plus it will hold up. One other is the 3" fixed site GP100. My two preferred full power 357 mag ccw wheelguns.

C&L, I also can't get enough of your 1917. Very cool.
Here is the story behind the S&W 28. Wait until you see what I have in the works right now. Should be ready in a few weeks.

Most Impressive! The job they did on the barrel and sight is amazing. I'd probably want to be carrying that 28 all time...and your 1917 too. I missed that info on the Colt Forum some way.

Recently aquired this S&W M1917 "Fitz Special", .45 acp.
The barrel has been shortened to 3", rifling is sharp & smooth, front sight installed, grip frame has been rounded off, hammer bobbed (grooves cut into top of hammer), will shoot single & double action, lanyard ring hole on bottom of the grip frame has been plugged, and the trigger guard cut to a Fitz style. The grips do not appear to be original.
The S&W shoots very nice, shot 26 rounds 230gr FMJ. The sights are well regulated, and the trigger is real smooth. The Smith has some mechanical problems, but that will be addressed later.
Whoever customized this revolver, did a nice job. It also appears to have been done a long time ago.
Per Roy Jinks, the M1917, serial #126xxx, was shipped October, 1918.
Enjoy.

C & L,

Yep, its chambered for .45 LC. The Western Ammo box in the pic has an $8.95 price on the end flap...gone are those days! The cartridges in the pic are some hand loaded 255 grain Bull-X Semi Wad Cutters.

The gun never really felt good in my hand as the muzzle felt like it wanted to drop downward. The Tyler T-grip is one for a Colt Detective Special. Even though the Beretta has a one piece grip, the tabs on the Tyler T-grip still fit in place when loosening the bottom screw and two top ones of the grip frame.

I'll admit it looks unusual :shocked: to see a Tyler-T on a SA revolver, but it certainly helps in holding the gun both before and after squeezing the trigger.

Back in the 70's Mag-Na-Port made a custom conversion revolver from a Charter Arms BullDog.
They called it the "Backpacker".
Some of the things that were done to it was the barrel shortened to 1.75", barrel porting, eliminate the front sight,
bobbed hammer, hard chrome finish, and trigger job.
