These single action revolvers were the top of the line in their day & set the standard in quality & tight tolerances in a single action revolver. These guns were running with Dan Wesson's during the heyday of IHMSA competition. Companies like Freedom Arms had some pretty big shoes to fill, if they were going to surpass the quality of these guns.

I feel very fortunate to own two of these fine guns. The first is a special IHMSA marked Seville Silhouette .454 Magnum (Casull) 10" barrel...one of only five made.

Same gun, wearing some grips I made from a pair of old Herretts.

My second one is a Seville Silhouette .375 USA (SuperMag) 10.5" barrel. Luckily this one came with wood grips, so I don't need to screw up any more Herretts for this gun.Laugh

Very fine revolvers,  Cool Pics especially that .454 one-of-five. I regret not jumping on that one a long time ago, but the pics were bad, and the price too high. Cleaned up very nicely.

.357 SuperMag Seville, a very early one marked "SUPER MAG" as most of them were marked "MAXIMUM".

And my favorite Seville, the blue .41 Magnum 10.5". As nice a bluing as the Dan Wesson or Colt, even has the barney effect on the grip frame and ejector rod housing.

IHMSA, Nice addition, that .375.  I did not know you had the others.  I especially like that blue .41 Seville.  Like those 41's.  Looks like a reflection of some type of ancestry in that barrell too lol2

A man cannot have too many SuperMags

Thanks...there is a LOT of ancestry in that blue .41 there.

Won the .375 USA on New Year's Day this year...it was on Gunbroken.

Wisdom is merely the realization of how little one knows, therefore I am wise.
