Mick Barnet
Cowthorpe
Leconfield, England
Summer 1978

Mick worked as a machinist for Cadbury's in Hereford. He made the Navy Colt that he is holding, starting from a photograph in a book and a barrel measurement.

To construct the inner workings, he attended a gun show, dismantled a similar pistol and drew plans from memory.

We both fired the gun in a shed at Cowthorpe and hit what we were aiming at.
