Some of mine are more utilitarian than pretty, but all are beautiful in my eyes; as are all handguns. Some of these have gone down the road since, but I enjoyed their beauty while I had them.

well not real long range but a couple of hammers, nothing really special to look at but both shoot straight and hit hard.

Hey Rod, how much more does the Lott kick over the 458 win mag? Gregg, I love those micro 1911's. I carry one all the time.

Well the only lott I've built so far was on the heavy taper Bergara rifle barrel but it still kicked quite a bit harder than the Winchester on the pistol taper barrel. I have another pistol barrel I'll be rechambering in the near future and it will be in the Lott so I'll be able to compare better. The heavier lott would push back way harder than the win but the win has alot more muzzle rise and especially if you relax your grip.

I still feel that this S&W M-27 is one of the finest looking handguns I own. As I said in the original post, it has it all:
deep blue, functional grips and plenty of history....

Hank, have you taken critters with the old army and what kind of performance are you getting out of it? Before I started building my own I thought about having them build one for me now I was thinking of getting one and doing my own conversion on it.

I have taken several whitetails with it.

I get about 1250 Fps with 250 gr bullet and 50 gr Triple 7 fff. Mount Baldy was making bullets, but as I understand he no longer does. It takes special bullets as the bore is .488 to match .50 cal muzzle loader balls. Of course you could do one with a .500 or .510 bore. if you don't plan on also shooting balls.

I have found that if the bullets have lube on the side, that is not just in the grooves, recoil will cause the bullets to move forward since they are not crimped. I alway wipe the sides of my bullet as dry as I can get them and use a wonder wad behind the bullet for some extra lub.
