Cimarron "Old Silver" Frontier model .45 Colt by Pietta


I replaced the checkered wooden grips with some faux stag hombres from N.C. Ordnance Inc. and the fit perfect out of the bag.

I wish they had included a little washer, as the bolt is a few millimeters too long.

Oh well, time to go listen to the hardware store staff tell me "Is it for a GUN? We don't carry parts for GUNS around here" again.

I have never gone for engraved firearms before, but I wanted this one to approximate the style-ish cap guns I had in the '60's.

I was very fond of my old Mattel Fanner 50.

Now I am very fond of this one.
