Craig,
You are redefining the definition of a "B Keeper". Beautiful guns!

Beautiful guns. All of them.

All of my C's have gone down the road to new homes. I think there were 7 between the hammer guns and the hammeerless.

Could we see a close up of the engraving on 111224, Craig? It looks to be fantastic.

While I'm asking, both side views and the floor plate view would be nice.

Thanks for showing us those beautiful B's Craig and Bob.

I must say my eyes keep being drawn to 111224, is that engraving a deeper relief or is that because of the angle of the picture??

Love the fine Damascus on the 2 upper guns!!

The engraving on 111224 is deeper with more coverage plus it's a straight grip with good dimensions 1 5/16 x 2 1/4 x 14 3/8. I would say the bottom two guns are very similar to many guns from the same period I have observed. Lighter cut scroll and smaller dogs, most also have two dogs on the trigger plate flushing a bird.

Bob, the screw heads on the side of the receiver are a nice touch. I don't think I've seen that before.
