    I am not even close to shooting accurately at his speed.
    I think he shoots and competes more in a month than I do in a year:jester:

    I have been trying to think of a way to respond to this, butt simply gave up.

    Then there was my thought of a cigar hanging from Cpj's butt that you could shoot at, but I doubt his butt would look very good for the cameras.

    Are there any pics of this gun?

    The scope base is not on it.
    Pics soon

    4 pounds of H110 was delivered yesterday and I took my Leupold/Burris Signature ZEE rings off of my 284 Winchester XP-100, so now just waiting on my FR which should be here late next week:cool2:

    I'd have expected the rail to be a tad longer. No?

    For most of my uses I will be using a rifle scope, so it will work great. With a rifle scope, I will put the back ring on back rail, and move the scope as far backwards as possible.
    Just like I do on my SP's.
    With the 2-7 Burris LER it will be forward more likely. With my dot sight it won't matter.
    I think it will be long enough.

    With the custom barrel I would go with a full length cantilevered over the hammer rail just for versatility. I would have the lightening cut and irons incorporated like the S&W 22a. You could get a hammer extension like for scoped lever actions.

    Since you went the full custom barrel route did you make it swappable? Tensioning helps with accuracy. I have everything to make a full length cantilevered mount for my Dan Wesson but can't bring myself to violate the beautiful mirror finish.

    Not a switch barrel set-up.
    No tensioning.

    Absolutely beautiful revolver! :drool:

    Like the barrel length. "Excuse me while I whip this out." :rotflmao:

    I understand that you have a task at hand, but for me.............that gun is too disproportional.

    Concept, I like. Execution, not so much. Of THIS particular one. I did like the proportions of the shorter barreled builds and prefer the dimensions of a pistol scope to the revolvers size and like the vertical split rings more as well.

    This is is my brain designing what I would prefer, of course.

    Roger that. I will be having the barrel shortend after my 500 yard project and then may do it again with a shorter barrel.

    Zed just wants it shorter because he doesn't want a gun that's taller than him. What is the barrel length?

    And? So?
