Terry Theis of Harper, Texas cut the 50% engraving on the nice Smith 629 after I did a complete action job which included recutting the crown and forcing cone, correcting end-float, numbering, beveling and polishing the cylinders, reducing the single and double action trigger pull, and glass beading the stainless steel for a nice soft matte finish. The action job was $125.00 and the 50% engraving ran around $600.

Custom Texas Longhorn

14. Custom Texas Longhorn

This is a rare Texas Longhorn single action made like many shooters believe a Colt Single Action Army should have been made for a right hand shooter with the loading gate and extractor rod on the left. Like many of we aging shooters the owner wanted a Doctor red dot scope mounted so he could see the cottin’ pickin’ sights. The grip is an abbreviated Bisley.
