Re: Bearcat and Single Six

Actually, shipping firearms to CA is not that difficult. It takes about a minute to sign up as an FFL and some CA FFLs will accept shipments from individuals. The problems arise when a firearm that's illegal in CA is sent into the state such as a non-compliant AR style rifle or an off-roster handgun...

Re: Article for Vaquero Style Single-Sixes

Neat info, indeed, Chad! Really enjoyed reading your article. With only one model still in production it will be interesting to see what the Company does with the FS 22 Sixes going forward considering that the Wrangler is LR only and 22 WMR is a popular round. Perhaps a magnum only version? I imagin...

So there must have been a lot of outsourced castings in inventory or maybe Pine Tree castings weren't available until then if my speculation...

Re: Plum frame RSS5

Since I had never seen any plum components that were so striking in appearance, I assumed that they had gotten the metal formula mostly sorted after early problems, and subsequent color variations were not so far off. Lots of early SA components have that purple 'hue' but nothing like this. So, then...
