The shop owner took the gun in on trade, so we now own a "unique" wall hanger. The plan is to add more accessories, like bayonet and ladder type rear sight. Except we want to stay "period correct" when adding the parts. Use only parts that would have been available in the early 1900s.
Thoughts so far:
Find an old junk grip frame from a Colt SAA type revolver and use it to make a VFG.
Ladder type rifle sight
Long ass bayonet like the 1873 Springfield
