Nice! What is the engraving and is that real ivory?

Not sure Terry but either a bison or cattle. I'm
reasonably sure this is ivory. Here's another look.

That's a buffalo scrimshaw. Ain't no cow got that look.

Definitely NOT a Colt or Great Western.

What I see is an S&W adjustable ear sight, custom front sight, modified
hammer and the ivory stocks. What does puzzle me are the notches
directly behind the flutes on the cylinder?????? I wonder if they're uses
as a safety device so that the hammer doesn't rest on a live round.
Would work even better if the gun has been converted to an in frame
firing pin like the Ruger. I really would like to look that one over. Wonder
if it's still in the original calibe?

Looks like a Colt horse. I know it's hard for you to see
on your phone. There is a patient & a date below that.

Yes extra notches probably for what you suggest.

Not sure about the firing pin but the caliber has been
changed as you can see in the last picture to 44 Special.

Ok. One of those highly "modified" Colts... Hummmm. Way too many "alterations" destroyed its collectors value...

Here's an interesting letter from Ray Brazille the old
motorcycle racer & gun trader. While I love the looks of
this sixgun I wonder if I would like the hammer?

Wade if you were to shoot this gun would you pull the
trigger with the joint of your forefinger as opposed to
the pad to keep it from shooting left?

Good Lord, Lynn. You're asking the shakeist gun in the west! I think I'm the last person to ask. But Rex suggested hooking the trigger like shooting double action and that's put me on target. Got me more centered that's for sure.
