A very serious gentleman

He’s happy to see you…and it is an M1917 revolver with a full clip of 45ACP in the cylinder.

And yes, it comes with a loading/unloading tool.

    What is that attached to the right side of the revolver? An aftermarket rear sight?

    A properly attired gentleman is always appreciated.

    I see you are right-handed, and left-eyed.

  4. It is indeed an aftermarket sight –a Wondersight aftermarket click-adjustable sight I added for long -range fun.

    I enjoyed putting rounds through that revolver, and reading the story behind it. I hope I was able to move it out of the rain in the nick of time at Boomershoot and that it didn’t get any water in the case.

    I fired six shots from that pistol at a four inch boomer at ~400 yards, and DANG IT! I missed! The sights must have been off a tad, or my spotter might have called the wind wrong…

    Seriously though; thanks for the opportunity. It’s the first time I’ve fired a 45 ACP revolver, and I like it.

    And thanks to all the models who showed up and worked so hard and so well. That was 10 days to remember.

    I have one of those Evans Wonder-Sights on my Brazilian contract 1917 – good way to zero in sights various ammunitions and using factory holes, do not damage the original gun. It does require a little more care in keeping it from getting damaged.

    There are several speed loader belt magazine ‘speed loader’ designs that will allow a PAIR of stacked full moon clips to fit each pocket, effectively doubling your storage in same space.

    A 1909 Colt is similar but the barrel has no taper and it doesn’t need moon clips, you can shoot .45LC in it.
