      I am fond of the little C&B Pocket Model revolvers by Uberti. They all come with the brass backstrap. Can someone make a steel one? I can supply a model to work from

      Anything can be made – for a price – that’s the rub.

      I did not know that.

      Perhaps you know someone who would like to try?

      I’ve made them before. Totally from scratch, and out of steel. I know exactly how to do it.
      I also know exactly how much time is involved, and I’m too covered over to take on a project like that at the moment. Such a project would be much better executed as a labor of love by the owner?
      Do you have files, a drill press, and a welder? I can tell you exactly how to do it.

      I have made many parts with just a portable hand held milling machine but I no longer wish to spend that kind of quality time with a file. I was hoping to find a machinist or a foundryman with some spare time.
