454 Casull

Description: This is an updated pic of the 454 I built, like the 500 it's been re blued and this time I polished the cylinder but still left the rest of the gun matte. I drilled and tapped it for the Weigand mount with my 2X Leupold and the Oak grips I made for it.

Ed, I'm not sure I hadn't really thought about it since I had just been playing around with different things for myself. I'd have to give that some thought. I am trying to get in to get my fingerprints for my ffl but the rush for ccw's has the printing backed up until end of august so I'm trying to work with another agency to get the printing done other than that the check is written and most of the paperwork is done.

Ed as is with two things left to do. I have an extra ejector hsg on there why I'm waiting for a new one to show and I need to shoot it some more. With irons it would shoot one hole groups with factory winchester ammo that is now discontinued so I've been working on loads to make sure it's going to shoot straight. This gun is interesting in that it's a mish mash of left over parts so I decided to build a 454, it doesn't have some of the stuff Greggs gun has but it seemed to be a shooter all the same. If I were going to sell that gun with scope and all but replace the ejector hsg and get it shooting where it should I'd probably put it at 1500.00 and see what happened

I want to tell all of you thank you, so many of you have encouraged me with your comments on the guns I've built and like Ed some of you have pushed me a little to get things done. I've put a full price list on the shooters bench forum and I can also email or mail them to you. Gregg Richter fortunately caught me at a time when I was still on the fence about whether to pursue this or not. I was very nervous about the quality but I'm my harshest critic and I wasn't sure I wanted the atf in my life but the Gun I built for Gregg and the response from him and others has set this whole thing in motion. I'll have a nitch market dealing specifically with single action revolvers with just a little bit in double actions and T/c for the moment. Anyways again Thank you all for your encouragement.

rod,like a fool i have bought two freedom arms 454's.over 2000.00 each and i doubt if they have the class and quality that you put into your work.i wanted them but they wont kill any deader than my 454's in b.f.r or my two rageing bulls.id say 1500.00 is right on.wish i lived closer so i could feel what that gun feel's like.my gripe on freedom is the price they charge and you still dont get the best trigger or action job.send it back and pay out more money and waste more time.oh well,no body made me buy them,let the buyer be whare!!!best of luck.if i ever get the urge to buy another revolver,ill knock on your door.
