I like it. Looks good in blued. My 1858 is a stainless, which I like for corrosion resistance, but just doesn't look nearly as good as yours. Is yours a Pietta or Uberti or something else.

Regarding the Armi San Marcos guns, Marty @22lrfan has a couple that are nice. I fondled them at the M&G at Randy's @Southern Reloading place a few years back. Only thing about ASM, is that I've never seen a conversion cylinder for them, if you decided to go that route.

Thanks its a Pietta. I like it for less than $300 wasn't a bad deal. That and you just about can't find the 5.5" barrel right now everywhere is sold out. The price on the ASM is pretty good @ $175 but I hear parts are scarce and the quality isn't what the others are. I do love a sheriff model open top though. Not sure if I'm going to get a conversion cylinder right now or just go ahead and buy it a brother to keep it company. I'm thinking maybe a big brother with 8" barrel. Eventually I'll more than likely get a gated or a pale rider conversion cylinder. May get a regular conversion cylinder if I find one I like the price of.

I would definitely want a gated-type conversion cylinder on an open top gun, but on a 1858, it wouldn't be that big of a deal to me. You can take the cylinder out so quickly and easily on a 1858, whereas on the open tops, it's more of a PITA. You've got to have a mallet to whack the pin out, then take the whole barrel/lever assembly off the gun to remove the cylinder.

I'm guessing the middle one is the ASM Sherrif model? With that sleeker, rack-and-pinion style loading lever, it looks like either an 1860 Army or 1861 Navy.

What's the maker/price on the bottom one? It looks like an 1851 Colt Navy w/ 7.5" barrel.

Pietta. $225 plus $20 shipping. But, it was the first one sold. I was thinking about the 1858, but Rig beat me to it. Congrats, rigrat, that's a nice piece!

Yeah not that big of a deal with the 1858.

LOL, Hoot beat me to it $225+20 shipping. And the ASM was a 1860.

I thought about passing on it then I was like you been looking for that config for 3 weeks and haven't found it yet. So I got it. I was trying to hold out for Midwayusa to get them in as they are overdue right now. Since I bought this one they will surely be in stock within the week. ;)

You will forget it is in your pocket. I almost do with thier 380 and the 32 is smaller yet. Would make a great ankle gun or front pocket.

My plan for it is an ankle gun/BUG.

Beretta A400 Xcel Parallel Target in 12 gauge w/30” barrel and Beretta’s Kick-Off recoil reducing system. Thanks to Cole Fine Guns and Gunsmithing out of Maine.

Probably not what serious clay shooters would have picked, but I’m a sucker for quirky Italian stuff, and this gun just points so well for me. I was smitten with the A400 Parallel Target 3 years ago when I first handled one, and have been pining for one of my own ever since.
