Daryl, I really like that Wesson! Unique. And that Pauly is most interesting.

Don't know if anyone has tried to just checker a hammer spur, particularly one with a border all the way around.
Try it and you will appreciate the craftmanship even more.

Chuckster, one of the quickest ways I have found to judge the intrinsic quality of a hammer gun is to glance at the quality of the hammer spur checkering. If it’s coarsely done or irregular then there’s no need to look further. The gun’s internal quality will also be lacking.

Just ran across these hammers from a Griffiths & Worsley of Manchester from the 1870’s. Great story about it in the current DGJ. I think they are very attractive and graceful, even with the stubby nose.

Is my imagination running wild or does anyone else see all the fish, birds, and snakes, and other (??) animals in this beautiful and fascinating array of hammers??

I do, indeed. But, cannot figure out what is being depicted in this one ............ 46. Jean-Baptiste Rongé et Fils.

Some imaginary creature with lots of dental?

My Husqvarna 36 back action jones underlever has nicely engraved hammers and locks. I recently had the barrels re-browned, and I'm re-working the wood now.
