Custom Encore shoots 356 or 358 Win, by changing the extractor, I bought both, and have a threaded dummy to have a choice of muzzle brake or no muzzle brake, I prefer the 356 version.

the most unique handguns I've had are two i built. One was a snubnose Blackhawk 500 Linebaugh and the other was my personal 458 Lott Encore. I cherish the pistol i have that is worth the least. My grandmother chose me out of 46 grandchildren to have it. It is an Iver Johnson break top 32 S&W that belonged to my uncle. He was a (MACV SOG 5th Special Forces) LRRP team leader attached to 1st div 7th Cav Airmobile. it has the govt black plastic grips. one side is broke in half and the plating is coming off. i dont know that I would even try to shoot it. But i wouldn't give it up for anything.

I do have three new projects ive been tinkering on for a while now. 3 Encore barrels, 458 Lott, 450 NE and 500 NE. people always ask why, the answer is simple. Because I can.

thanks for asking. well i got a lot worse health wise for a while but its stabilized now. A combination of my back and getting older which sucks i might add although i have mellowed a lot. i was in the middle of some pretty heated arguments on here in the past but thats over. i am up to 11 back surgeries now. i had started to get back on here before but Gary had said he was shutting it down. it wasnt until Stush emailed me i even knew the site was still up.

This may sound like a broken record but when talking unique handguns I must mention my Dan Wesson stainless steel .44 Mag. I purchased their handgun just before CZ took over an added a number of different barrel/shroud lengths in 2 1/2 - 4- 6 and 8 inches. The extra shrouds are most helpful when switching from scoped to iron sights... When hunting brown bear I carried the DW with a 4" barrel and loaded with punch bullet ammo as backup to my 454 and while hunting boar the gun carried a scoped 8" barrel. Unique?? Yes....
