Found this photo taken over 25 years ago at Freedom Arms, WY when I ordered my first of their handguns in 454. The pretty lady was a sweetie named Susie Taylor who handled my order information. She was so good that she talked me into a brass bead/V notch rear sight assembly. The gun was an early model that I had to send back to have the firing pin drilled and tapped for their removable bushing. How long have you guys had your 454`s???....

Mc #7 shooters choice to get it out and then eezox to keep it from coming back.

edit for more detail- developed copper colored streaks between the lands at the muzzle on my 30-30 barrel after a few hundred rounds. Cleaned well with copper cleaner and then applied/cleaned with Eezox and they haven't returned after a thousand+ rounds.
