    Cleaning revolvers

    Well I own 4 ROA’s three stainless one blue. And they get cleaned the same way as the Colts , Remingtons and Rogers and Spencer’s. They also get disassembled and cleaned once a season.(If they were used in that season). But I’ll keep your sage advice in mind.

    Cleaning revolvers

    Horse Crap. I’ve been cleaning my “Black Powder” revolvers for ten + years now, hot running water, Dawn Dish soap followed by a t blow down with compressed air. Aerosol Ballistol in all the frame openings with another light blow with compressed air to distribute the oil and remove excess. I...

    Do you need a persona?

    That might just fit a goodly portion of us in these pages. Add a beard gone white a few more years and it’s certainly me. 😁

    Packing with grease

    Not much cure for the fouled base pin on NMA’s other than wiping it clean after a few cylinders. Fortunately it’s a simple matter of lowering the loading lever and pulling the base pin out. Rogers and Spencer’s and ROA addressed that by adding a bushing to the front of the cylinder.

    Packing with grease

    Who knows could be our ancestors packed their 1860’s,51’s, Walkers and NMA’s with hog fat. For sure they didn’t use automotive or another petroleum grease. My only opposition was it hampered my normal cleaning routine.

    Packing with grease

    I get it you don’t like people disagreeing with you, I mean who does, but why get all snarky about it. Why be an A O about it.

    Packing with grease

    Tell you what fellows. Pack with the grease. Shoot a thousand or so rounds of cap and ball, or paper or brass black powder cartridges then open her open and let us know what that grease looks like. All that smoke and soot around the bolt and hand opening behind the hammer slot, it even gets...

    Best place to send Colt percussion clones for work?

    Sadly, my favorite tuner is not able to take any new work at present. @Outlaw Kid has only worked on one of my Colts. An 1861 Navy. But he did wake it up, it’s my wifes favorite percussion arm and his turnaround time was less than a week, including shipping. Thanks again, Kid! That’s my choice...

    Frying venison & the game warden,,,,

    Wasn’t it a character named Boss Hogg that ate the stuff uncooked in a comedy series of two hillbillies and a blond Dixie who ran around in a souped up Dodge Charger named the General. I like it cooked a bit my self. 😳😊

    Best place to send Colt percussion clones for work?

    It’s not a general statement, I’d suggest one get a firm idea of how long one is willing to invest time and money into a project performed by others. Just an opinion based on experience.

    Packing with grease

    I’ve found, contrary to general wisdom that a black powder revolver that was properly lubricated before firing and had generous amounts of lube used on ball or conical is not going to rust over night in normal conditions. Cleaning is a chore and I never clean on the same day as shooting but the...
