After talking to good friend Mike Barranti a while back about a special gun project I decided to copy him & have one built myself. I did change mine just a bit but did start with a old model 357 Ruger as the base gun. Next up was a new 5" barrel, cylinder, 2 Dogs great front sight, Bowen target rear sight (thanks Glenn) Belt Mountain base pin, action job, recessed target crown, steel, round grip frame, Turkish walnut stocks & a trigger that breaks like frozen lettuce. The gun was built by Tyler Guns Works & Bobby's crew does an amazing job turning out custom six guns! Matt, his Ace pistol smith worked his magic on my new toy & then actually delivered it because him & his wife Courtney wanted to make a trip west for a little vacation, wow!
The gun is absolutely amazing in every way, I wouldn't change anything about it. Oh, you want to know the caliber... how about a sweet shooting 45 Auto Rim! This little beauty shoots the old Keith #452423 242 gr bullet just fine, thank you! It also does very well with the Miha 223 gr SWC HP & I'm just getting started. Only been shooting it 3-4 days in limited shooting.
I've been busy showing Matt & Courtney around the worlds biggest playground! We shot targets, we've shot ground squirrels, rock chucks, Matt tangled with a Badger but it got in the rocks before he could get a shot. Courtney proved to be the best fisherman as she caught 5 nice trout & one was the biggest fish she had ever caught.
One last thing, Matt Grabbe, besides being a world class pistol smith is also a world class shooter!! I'll have to post the other photo's later & hopefully a couple of videos if I figure it out but he did some amazing shooting with his Ruger 44 special & my Buckeye 32-20, yikes! A sneak preview, how about a Rock Chuck at a lasered 185 yds with my Buckeye 32-20 with one shot. We have it on video. That's David Bradshaw country! Don't mess with Texas!!!!

I have some extra brass if you need it. We have several 45 auto rims.

My son just picked up a 1937 Brazil S&W it shoots incredible.

We love the old 230 RN cast bullets
