An artist friend of mine decided that his forge was a good place for his pistols to undergo a spiritual conversion.

I am sure that Clint and Smith and Wesson would not approve of this treatment of a Magnum 44

Might have been more utilitarian as plowshares, but I'm all for it either way.

Well, if you really want to know what Clint has to say about it you are going to have to get out of your chair,..


If you ask me, .44 magnum is what idiots use on people and people use on bears.
Bet the artist wasn't named Vincent,..

nice shop the guy has, too bad he is not going to live that long keeping compressed tanks (co2/argon) near his forge. BACK THAT SH#T AWAY FROM HEAT.

this could be a cool gun art thread, or we could toss in some machine gun shootin' videos for the other side of things.

Umm...

I'll prolly catch hell from Lolli, but I have to point out that the Swedes have been and still are one of the worlds largest arms makers and exporters especially per capita. They learned the trade by supplying the Germans in both World Wars with steel, guns and ammunition.

Prime Minster Olaf Palme (sp?) tried to nationalize the industry and ended up face down in a Stockholm street with a bullet in his head. The official story was that it was the random act of a lunatic.

Okay that doesn't mean their not all of what you said. But since the topic surrounds guns, I think it is worth pointing out that they are a big player in the field, even if they don't want their own citizens to have very many.

BTW a Swedish Mauser is a prize if you can get a clean one.

Afghanistan. They loved Charlie Wilson!

Isn't the 40mm BoFors AA gun made in Sweden? That means the Swedes not only manufactured critical components for the German V2, but supplied AA guns to the Brits too, does it not?

Arms manufacturing and war are two activities that everybody wants the other guy to give up!

Too bad about the Smith and Wesson.
I'd advocate doing that to the shooter before I'd ruin a nice pistol.
