Got the plaque done, and added some red felt to the interior.

That is an amazing set, did not know they existed. Incredible.

I don't know much about that particular leather holster, just that it works well, especially if I 'sometimes' don't want to wear on hip for various reasons. Had to fabricate a shorter snap/strap to better secure 4.75 inch FA in this one. My guns have primarily been used for hunting or ranch work, being my usual approach.

For hip, I have a great FA leather holster (to use with or without scope - split at top for scope mount) plus another 'old west' hip style holster made especially for short barrel FA, that I found in a remote leather goods shop while on contract in Montana during early 2000's.

If looking closely at picture, there is an emblem stamped on shoulder holster. Have never looked it up or researched it.

My brother found it for me decades ago somewhere in Texas, while working as a Texas Peace Officer. He knew I had been looking for that type of verticle shoulder style 'but in leather' to replace same style 'in nylon' made by Uncle Mikes, I had worn throughout 80s. Both are comfortable but leather is more so.

These are fairly rare also. Only around thirty five of these where made from 1986-1992.

Had a chance to look into shoulder holster asked about. Think the company is different now, but emblem looks like something from a desert eagle. Perhaps the old magnum research.

That is a super sweet presentation. A neat historical set as well. Thanks for sharing these posts.

Thanks Squint....


Found this last month for a price I could not walk away from...picked it up off lay-a-way Thursday...Happy New YEAR!!



83 Premier
6" barrel
.41 Magnum
In 2014 went back to the factory for:
Round Butt
Recessed Crown
3# Action Job
Box and all paperwork


















I am thinking about sending it back to FA to have the barrel cut to 4.75" as I already have a 6"...

Looks awesome Bob. Thanks for posting, its good to see an actual image of this configuration as have been looking to order exact profile in m83. I like it! Do not have 6 inch yet.

Have 7.5, 4.75 and 3inch. If primarily bench shooting, would strongly consider a 10 inch as well but still want to be able to hunt shooting off-hand (if needed) though shooting rest is much preferred.

Really like the inverted crown alot(one of mine has that dished out muzzle and looks good), also would like to have 1 octagon bbl someday (it may balance well in hand) but have always liked round ones a great deal.

My dealer mailed the gun today to FA to have the barrel shortened....hate to loose the inverted crown but can't see the extra money for it..my other 6" has it and that's enough...

Picked up this 10" mod 97 in .357 a while ago. It's my only octagon barrel FA. Ron Power did a trigger job, jeweling and added the sling.

That’s the first FA I’ve seen with an inverted crown, interesting. Should look sweet with the shortened barrel, be sure to post pics!
