Mike, The Wiley Clapp is a nice piece - love mine. First run was only 2,000 and they are available without too much effort right now - get 'em while they're hot! I hear this year's Wiley Clapp is a run of 2,500 in blue. I haven't seen one of them yet - is yours blue or Hawkeye finish SS?Received my new Wiley Clapp GP100, love it! All I expected and more.
I heard a rumour that this year's run of 2,500 was in a blue finish but that's jsut speculation and I'm not sure what that would look like. The "bead blasted" or "frosted" stainless steel looks cool enough but maybe there's something else better coming. The other nice thing about the WC is the softened edges all over and the taper to the cylinder.Nice looking gun Wave Are there other finishing options other than matt?
So the rumours were true! Thanks for the update BearcatShack. I would like to see one in person before passing judgement but since I generally like SS revolvers anyway I probably prefer the SS version. (So I wonder - if Talo has the SS did Lipsey's get the blue to compete?)
