Flare / signal guns see to me to have a certain steaminess

My Thunder 5 .410/45LC dual cylinder revolver is also a bit too modern in design, but post-engraving the look came out nicely retro'd. I still need to do something about the grip though. markf  http://www.dwharris.com/gun%20pictures/da/images/thunderfive_jpg_jpg.jpg

That is beautiful, I wanted one of those then they stopped producing them so i have had to settle for a Taurus Judge. But it does fit in my gunslinger holster which i dont think the Thunder 5 would have,and the loops fit the .45 long colts, so it isnt bad *L*

That came out beautifully.  I don't know what to suggest for the grips.  Do you mind sharing where and how mush that cost?

Here's his current price range for engraved pistols and rifles, quite a bit more pricey now vs when I had mine done. markf   http://www.dwharris.com/pri.htm

Perhaps mammoth ivory, though I don't know for certain if anyone is doing those for the Thunder 5.  Sambar is hard to come by, as well.  Perhaps ebony?  Faux ivory would probably be least expensive, of course.

Very nicely done.

I thought of mammoth ivory, but then I though of a burl wood, like walnut or birch, that echoes some of the colours in the engraving.  Another thought  would be a cloth/polymer laminate so that the carved shape would give different colouration patterns (e.g alternate layers of black and silver/grey cloth fixed together with a resin then sanded/filed away to give shape and pattern)

A little voice in the back of my head keeps going "Purple heart wood" - but I recon that's just because it's purple and I like purple.

 Shocked Woah!  That's outstanding!!!  Love the scrollwork.

...And Danbury, I'm with you on the flare pistols.
I passed up the chance to buy one of these little beauties for $40 a few years ago and deeply regret it!

behold the hollingsworth revolving automatic


I thought I knew historic firearms but apparently I don't. That is truly an amazing piece! After a little searching, it is apparent they didn't confine their efforts to just rifles. Here is their self-cocking pistol. If this one isn't replica-worthy, I don't know what is? There are some truly fantastic other works at the following link -

You do understand that purpleheart is toxic.  Deadly to work with if you don't have proper protective gear; and it definitely needs to be thickly sealed for any use.  I would not use it for handgrips, meself.


Cheers!

I've worked with purple heart a lot, mostly making knife and sword handles although I have made large items like crossbow stocks from time to time.

Sure, you don't want to breath it,  just like virtually all hardwoods it is toxic but its hardly "deadly"  maybe if your doing nothing in your shop but sanding purpleheart with no dust mask for years it will add up but you probably do more damage to yourself with second hand smoke.

I had a knife with a purple heart handle that I used in the kitchen nearly every day for years until I lost it.  It was sealed with just simple oil finnish and I never had any adverse reactions.  I've never heard of anyone getting sick from owning purple heart.

Just take standard hardwood precautions and you'll be fine.  Wear a mask when you are sanding, don't chew on it more than necessary etc.  Try not to let it burn, which purple heart will do easily if you are using a dull blade, that smoke is nasty.

And be aware that it is a bitch to sand.  I usually use my bench grinder with a course metal grinding wheel to do most of the shaping and only use my sander to finish it off.

Also, unless you seal it with a UV resistant finish the color will dull from the almost artificially bright purple that it starts with to a rich brown-red color. You can also heat it with a torch and turn it deep purple black, almost like ebony.

I have a Thunder 5 and have been looking to make a straight trade for a Taurus Judge; the T5 is in excellent quality and comes with a holster...any idea on a good place to start?

Not really sure on the laws for trading guns across the country or I'd offer to make a deal with you; I am hoping I can manage to get a model that holds the 3" cartridges like my Thunder does.

Also sorry if I hijacked the thread/registered simply to talk to you about this but it is very rare that you find someone who appreciates the craftsmanship and quality of the Thunder 5.

I hope this has not already been posted, however I just saw this video and thought it was too wild not to share.

Here's my sidearm:

It's a .50 caliber Kentucky percussion, a smoothbore designed for deep-forest hunting. Fairly accurate for a smoothbore pistol, actually, owing to the long barrel. Front-heavy, though.


I love my Kentucky Pistol. Here's a great choice I wish I had.

You could also just keep your T5 and customize it like I did via Mr Harris' professional engraving. markf
