Just to be clear, ‘Mike’ had nothing to do with this deal apart from alerting everyone to its presence when the bid was only $36 or something like that. 

‘Matt’ is the seller in question you are trying to refer to. I want to make sure my identity isn’t conflated with his. Thanks!

And beautiful restoration work on that decidedly scruffy barrel! I stand by my original premise which is that 357 AMP is fun and awesome. You are going to have a terrific time with it....

Sometimes I almost believe some manufacturers were time-travelers; seeing the future collector's
frenzy they placed all manner of mysterious markings on their guns just to give future collectors something to discuss, debate or write books about.

Plain gunz are boring...

I'm sorry Mike, I did mean to say Matt. 

I wanted to see what a broken rib looked like before fixed but I guess I'll wait for the next one . Wonder what conditions this barrel went through before popping it's rib. Hot hot loads or just a Monday gun.

Your welding skills are impressive. I've dabbled with regular steel with both MIG and regular welding and I can get a decent bead but have never tried stainless nor would I for something like this. If I'd purchased that barrel I should have been able to fix everything on my own except that loose rib.

I'm curious do you use an auto darkening helmet? Greatest issue I've always had is just positioning torch where I want it before striking an arc. If it had been me I'd likely have added a glob of weld under the barrel having missed the crown... Ouch

From what the weld looks like, I am assuming that it looked like this thread before he welded it.

If you were happy and you knew it, would you clap your hands?

That picture looks more of a Crack starting. Brian always wanted to keep the secret of how the ribs are attached for some reason. I always wanted to know the details about that, where are the welds applied and what are the issue doing it. I was hoping to see the actually marking of broken weld spots and such, maybe a rib that completely fell off would be the idea look. Anybody?

Brian wrote about his first rib weld job when he was making up his design of the Baby Automag, he applied too much heat while doing it and the barrel was pulled out of whack and shot high or something. Another engineer advised him how to avoid the issue.

So where are the welds? Does every manufacturer do it this way? Has the process has been greatly improved?

Scott
I was under the impression the sight rail was spot welded or electron beam welded, i'm not sure that's above my pay grade, I never thought they tig welded it at the factory but that's a guess
Golden is doing an excellent job, it's not a 10 yet but it started at a 1 and it takes time to make it perfect
