    Iíd go with a solid red rubber pad. Itís a very classic look.

    Fortunately, whoever polished the backstrap did so carefully. There's no severe rounding and edges are still pretty sharp.

    You can get a new serial from the ATF. Thereís a form for it. Iíve seen a Krag with a stamped in number that started with ATF.

    I'd lean that way. I sold a copy of a Colt Single Action just the other day. It had the same "feel" as this S&W.

    Perhaps. But again, I have a credit card processor that handles all my outside-of-ebay transactions.
    I'm averaging .35% (yes, one third of one percent) on my transactions through them.

    Not me.
    Sounds like a whole lot of fun in one gun for $429!
    By the way, a tubing cutter (like for plumbing pipe) will cut a shotgun barrel. Iíve done it a few times myself.

    That would require a lot of infrastructure. I think rust bluing this narrow strip would be a respectful way to go on this 102 year old revolver.
