    New revolver on the way.

    This one on the way as of today. Can't wait to get it, clean it up and
    see how it fires.

    Not sure exactly what manufacturer it is, but I've been acquiring some
    relic pieces lately for mounting in shadow boxes. Once the rust is stabilized
    this one should look good in the group …or maybe even singly in a small frame.

    Are you going to have it re-blued?

    You know, I really thought about that, but I like an original well used patina on these old guns.

    Put that on Gunbroker and describe it as "rare" and claim it once belong to a Texas Ranger in the 1800's.
    Let the bidding start at 1000.00 dollars.

    Interesting that the hammer was cocked when lost. Suggesting a perilous situation. Where was it found?

    I’m sure you’re aware that only black powder should be used with these.

    That should clean up nicely if it doesn't desolve.
