BUY. THE. 50.

I hate the fact you are buying these when I've fought the urge for so long. It's making it harder to do. Well it would be harder if my wallet was open for buying guns.

There are two types, brass and steel:

This appears to be the steel one based on the handle shape . . . but at this point (uncleaned), brass and steel all look the same. :bigsmile:

Well . . . I'm a frickin' n00b here, without a clue. I'll certainly document some of what I do, right or wrong, but if you want to see something that will keep your interest check out these two restorations, both by the same guy:
