    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (spoiler alert!)

    If you haven't seen it yet, then My suggestion is watch the Previews, maybe even more than once... They Look Really Good !!!!! And then skip the Movie... Cuz it Sucks !!!! Go watch some Three Stooges reruns instead....... They are much more entertaining.

    Beretta silverhawk for sass

    Butterfinger...... s'cuse ...... me BitterTrigger The main reason the SKB is such a great choice for CAS is the simplicity of the design. For example to cock the Hammer in an SKB there is a single lever. The forearm pushes it down on one side of the lever and the lever pushes the Hammer back on the other end.... Simple and Reliable. Look at a schematic of the beretta you'll see several parts doing the job the one lever does in an SKB The Beretta is a Great SxS .... but it's not designed for the type of abuse it would get in CAS

    Beretta silverhawk for sass

    Thats a good price for a Silverhawk... I would probably buy it myself at that price. But I Sure as Heck wouldn't make it into a Cowboy Gun. If you end up doing what you're thinking about....... You'll be taking a Very Nice Sporting gun and making it into an average (at best) Cowboy gun.

    Kalamity Kathy FORCED me to make some Vegan Chili once........ It was for her sister who was coming back to visit TEXAS after she had moved to California many years ago and married a Left Coast Computer Geek. Anywho..... They thought it tasted Great and that they were eating Real Texas Chili. But I get a little nauseous everytime I think about it. Afterwards when Lucy wasn't in the room, Tim asked me if I would'nt mind making him some Real Texas Chili next time they visited

    Cerakote finsh

    Well, the ribs were not removed........... just the filler at the front between the barrels and the small round filler plug at the back of the bottom rib you can look down between the two barrels and see light at the other end. That ensures there is no trapped air pocket that could expand and damage the barrel. The ribs are still there in place and should still be in place once the bluing process is done. My understanding is lots and lots of SxS's, Overunders and other types of multi barrel guns have been reblued like this in the past. But again, I aint Doin' the Bluin'.... So I'm learning here too............. And I think now Billy is leaning towards Cerakote.... So its all a moot point.

    Cerakote finsh

    GJ, Your link says the actual problem is the expansion of the air trapped between the barrels by the rib..... Rite? And I'm aware that you had no way to know this...... But, On Billy's SKB the filler between the barrels was removed before the barrels were sent off to be blued. And it will be replaced once the bluing process is complete. So no air pocket, No Problem, Rite???? ................ But then I'm not doing the bluing
