Dixe Firearms Custom 475

Description: This is my newest piece. It was built for a customer that will take possesion this week. It's based on a Vaquero frame and chambered in 475 Linebaugh. The barrel is 4 3/8 with a 5 shot Bowen cylinder and base pin. The barrel has been dovetailed for an ivory bead from sight and the rear beneath the sighting groove has been dimpled and an orang dot applied for quick sighting. Hammer and trigger are jeweled and it has a full action job with Wolff springs and a round hammer strut. The action is as tight as you can get it and still have it function. It's been linebored and has an oversized cylinder latch. It was converted to a Bisley grip and modified. It also has a steel ejector housing and a bullsey ejector for easier ejection under stress. I'll let the new owner tell you the name he's given the gun and why and also why ejection under stress could be an issue. This gun is a beast, I couldn't get it settled in the mechanical rest to where it would stop shifting and after 15rds I had to stop.

I forgot to mention the grip frame and cylinde frame are case hardened but it's hard to get a clear pic of it since I'm no photographer. The barrel and cylinder are a high gloss blue.

That looks great - very unassuming, like it its just a cowboy six-shooter, then you see that bore and know it means business. Amazing gun! I hear you on the 475 - I shot my friends, and it is a hnadful out of a short barrel.

You better hang-on to your left "you know what" ... you will need them both to squeeze the trigger on that beast!
