--Or at least beautiful! My Iver Johnson .22 revolvers went to Coal Creek Armory for attention (verdict: one fixed, one in need of parts that must be scrounged as they turn up*) and on the way back, Oleg Volk shot the pretty/working revolver. With his camera. Go look.
Oooooooooooo. Thank you, Oleg!
* And according to Tam, at least one of the 'smiths suggested I "should call them for the thirty-minute guide on checking out used revolvers." Sounds like a great offer to me! I have come up with two kinda beat-up ratchets out of the several revolvers I've bought; they seem to be a weak point. Not in the guns, in my evaluation skills!
