Funky Custom Revolver?

Post by Jon Math on 3/14/2018, 12:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

I’ve been seeing more than a few old revolvers lately.  They usually have the trigger’s polished smooth.  The shop owner tells me that was a semi-common modification among double action shooters.  A few even had the hammers bobbed so there was no doubt that they were only going to be fired in double action. 


Was there an action type shooting sport that utilized DA revolvers?  These are heavily modified, frequently having full length BOMAR type sight ribs, heavy weight slab sided barrels, bobbed hammers, and I’d assume some internal work as most are silk smooth.  None have orthopedic grips, all have evidence of the grips having modified for speed loaders with either wood or rubber removed.  Since I started noticing .38 seems to be the only caliber I’ve seen too.


They seem to be orphans, at least locally, and for an average price of under 400 bucks they are a lot of revolver.  I’d imagine in their day the barrel and rib might have been that kind of money alone.  I’m sure these have been too modified for use in a distinguished revolver shoot, but could they be used as a centerfire choice?  Or should they just be left where they are?

What is more rare than that short cylinder Fred Schmidt PPC gun, is the Travis Strahan Mascot rib on it. Strahan had two versions on the rib. Mascot 1 and Mascot II. Both had unique windage and elevation adjustments. The front and rear sight were on the same plain That entire plain would raise or lower, or cant left or right. Who has this gun for sale?
Good catch! I hadn't noticed that rib!

From your "age" I likely shot with, or against you. I shot for FCPD in Fairfax VA from 78-81. Shot Detroit Regional a few times, Philly Regional, Beltsville, Kinston, Knoxville and of course Jackson and Des Moines.

sold several Schmidt guns thru an estate over the past year,
never met the man (he was just north of me) but the quality of the firearms I sold were top notch,

I have another revolver left from the estate, but it is not marked that I can find, 
looks good but no idea who made it,
