Simply an amazing revolver there, one that I am sure will be passed down through the ages and quickly become a family heirloom.

Ted did my wife's model 65 and it is also pictured in this sub forum. Ted also did a S&W 49 that rides with us too. Well worn and well used.

Thanks to Ted and the Heirloom crew for a great shop and great work.

Holy crud, that's a beauty. I really like the gold inlay front sight. That's as functional as it is beautiful.
