Loc: South Carolina
Just finished a trigger job and hammer spring replacement on my new toy. Barrel is (Thanks DAN L on SP) an OTT 20 Vartarg step barrel (1.25 Diameter) 16.5 inches long. May be some potential here. Scope is a Burris MTAC 6.5-20x50mm. Forearm is a Tony G Pillar Bedded. Temporary grip is a beautiful Dave D. red laminate, but Walnut grip to match forearm is being order. Cartridges are loaded with a light load of H4198 and 32 Gr Hornady V Max. Rest of course is a Fuzz work of art. I am guessing around 3300-3500? This thing is a HOOT to shoot. Cant wait to really have time to play with. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I KNOW I did. God Bless Doug Target was at 50 Yards

Enjoy life but, remember we are only practicing for something better.
New Super to the stable, sometimes ya just get lucky! New to me 357 Maximum, new it was nice from the sellers pic's, but I ain't sure this has ever shot anything but Mag's and Special's, and very few of them. No forcing cone erosion or flame cutting. Bluing is 99% a little wear on the muzzle and a tad on the front edge of cylinder, and the turn ring. What a way to start the new year.
I was really wanting to send this to Clements for a Turnbull frame and high polish blue. But I think Bill will rest easier if I find another to alter! This one will stay original even has the correct rear sight blade and adjustments, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
So I did what was asked and this is the tiny pic.com uploaded photo of my beautiful Model 329PD with a stainless steel cylinder replacing the titanium one it came with. Also added a Hogue X-frame recoil absorbing grip to it. Later it will be Mag-Na-Ported with dual trapezoidal ports. And Ken Kelly will also polish the hammer and the trigger of this revolver. I tried to post a better and clearer picture. Hope it works for you all.
5 1/2 INCH RUGER SINGLE SIX 22MAG/22lr, WHICH I HAVE SEMI "PERFECTED" WITH A 2 DOGS FRONT SIGHT, A No. 5 STYLE BELT MOUNTAIN BASE PIN AND SOME HOLLY WOOD GRIPS BY SIXSHOT. THE GRIPS ARE PLUMPER THAT THE FACTORY GRIPS AND I REALLY LIKE THE FEEL BETTER. THE 2 DOGS SIGHT IS AMAZING AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT (I GOT IT .110 WIDE vs. .125 WIDE). JUST PUT THE No. 5 BASE PIN IN THIS MORNING AND IN INFORMAL SHOOTING IN A 20mph WIND IT SURE SEEMED TO SHOOT BETTER WITH THE 22lr CYLINDER. HAVE NEVER SHOT IT WITH THE 22MAG CYLINDER. ACTION WORK AND A BETTER REAR SIGHT WOULD FINISH IT OUT, BUT IT IS JUST A PLINKER AND TRIGGER TIME TRAINER, SO FOR NOW I WILL KEEP IT AS IS.
"ADAPT OR DIE". I USE ALL CAPS, NOT BECAUSE I AM YELLING, BUT BECAUSE IT IS AN OLD HABIT FROM MY ARMY DAYS, PLUS IT IS EASIER TO TYPE AND READ.
