It seems like a first time DIY that was not thought out or executed well. I'm cleaning it up and will blend the knob permanently into the handle.

I'm not a professional by any means but I did a little trigger work on it and it is the finest trigger I have ever shot on a revolver.

Nice pair Mike D! I'm waiting on the upcoming Gun Show in Louisville on the 13th/14th of June, should be able to get a Smith Model 18 for the family to plink with before I buy on GunBroker! Love those Smith's, as well as the Marlin lever's!

Have a Ruger M77 - 300wm on the way. I had a buddy buy three $10.00 tickets for the lefty action and he won. So, I gave him $30.00 for the money he spent on the raffle tickets, and another $22.00 for shipping - should be here within the next week or two. Not to bad of deal, if you ask me. Will be first Ruger bolt action (M77 hawkeye, wood and blued)
