  1. Colt Revolvers
    Hey friends. I want to replace the cylinder on my original Colt army 1860 because it's not in good condition and I want to put it back to work. I found these two (check out the links below) The Uberti is saying it also fits on an original. But it's out of stock, so I have to deal with the...
  2. Python
    I'm trying to work reloads up to the original .357 round (158 gr at 1500 fps). I'm worried about blowing my cylinder. Does anyone have data on what the recommended and upper limits are for cylinder pressure?

  4. Colt Revolvers
    Hi All, I'm new to the forum and new to Colt. I have a question regarding cylinder spin--that is, how easily the cylinder spins when swung out from the frame. I searched through the forum and did find that the cylinders on older Colts tend to have a tighter fit than newer Colts and other...

  8. Colt Revolvers
    Hello, new to the forum. Shot my SAA for the very first time. It is a 2011, 5.5", SN S66xxxA. I purchased it with the intent on shooting it occasionally. I am concerned about the finish on the cyclinder because after only 50 rounds, the blue finish looks to have come off near the back end of...

    Here is a question for the experts here please: I saw a Colt Officer Revolver 38 in my local shop. It is in decent condition overall, but the timing is off/loose. When the gun is in lockup (hammer cocked, trigger pulled, hammer gently let down) the gun is tight, no wiggle or movement of the...
