Nickel plated Open Top 1871

Just arrived today at home. I decided to buy my first nickel plated revolver. This was just waiting for someone to pick it up at Taylors warehouse. It is .45Colt and a 5 1/2" barrel. Of course I had to remover the wooden grips and install Buffalo Brothers Cowboy Store grips. Makes a nice looking piece, and I'll shoot it later.

Yikes, sure is a Pretty Sight to see.
Good Luck with it.
Looks almost to good to shoot.
It's definitely a Keeper.
Almost made through the day without Drooling.

nickel is good looking and was a practical finish especially in damp climates. Many in the british empire in india and africa carried nickel handguns.
