This revolver is in pitiful shape.

Bringing this vintage revolver back to life is a mission of respect.

Witness this rusted revolver go from scrap to a show room beauty.

Anyone that has hit flea markets and gun shows knows this sight. A fine revolver or any other firearm left in the rain or a leaky barn for ages is a sad thing.

YouTuber Random Hands has one such revolver. It’s days appear numbered. With rust and broken or missing pieces it appears to almost be scrap now. Luckily this revolver is in for a treat. It is stripped down and completely rebuilt on sped up video.

Watching this video is quite a joy. Satisfaction can be had when taking something that was once broken and useless and making it come alive again. That certainly is the name of gunsmithing especially in this rescue case.
