Scored one from Gunborker I didn't have - a Spanish maker I'd never heard of before.

Which goes well with the other Spanish Bodeo in the safe.

Since the safe was open, here are a few more you don't see very often. First is an Obreros Hermanos top break in 10.35 Italian service revolver cartridge. A very robust revolver, and wouldn't I like to have a holster for it!

This is a parkerized Guardia Bodeo by Napoleon and Vittorio Castelli. Parkerized Bodeos are legit - the work was done in the 50s as a gov't "make work" project since unemployment was so high. This one has nice markings showing it was refurbed in 1932.

On this 1905 Glisenti is an old type hammer safety that just didn't work out. There's a cam on the hammer that moves it aside when firing. Which means if there's slight wear, it won't work. Plus the exterior bar is prone to breakage. Few of these remain.

Yes! Ales told me about that one, and I wrote it in my 'shopping list'. SW
