    I'm one of the younger guys interested in percussion revolvers, but I haven't met someone who did the same. I'll try to save as many as possible from the scrap pile!

    Time does us all injustice . To me Sam Colt sired no ugly child ( maybe the Root model ), that Dragoon rode hard in its day. Just think of the history it was a part of .

    First, remove any caps from nipples with gun pointed downrange. Probably the best way to unload is to remove the nipples and punch out powder and ball from that end with a brass punch. You can also...

    This is a decent Colt M1860 with much better than average grips. With letters on these costing $300 from Colt, it is neat to see a letter every now and then.
