    How fast can BP revolvers be reloaded?

    This is a great topic that I have thought/wondered about. Cylinder swapping does seem more 20th-century - dealing with the added wedge on my 1851 Navy for a cylinder swap is just asking for trouble and dropping something. The 1858 certainly lends itself way better for swapping out. I can see...

    Pedersoli Lock slipping

    Thanks all for your input. The lock does not hold at full cock removed from the pistol. That rules out the trigger depth... Broken sear makes sense as the tip is a bit rough. Now to contact Pedersoli! And where do I find a mainspring vice?

    Pedersoli Lock slipping

    Greetings – picked up a "used" Pedersoli pistol and without even getting it out noticed a very very light trigger. So much that sometimes when pulling back to full cock it slips right away! I must admit, new to BP – and I love it! Past that quite adequate with the unmentionables and tools...

    Maximum loads for 1858 Remington

    My Uberti's get 30gr of 3F - My Uberti carbine gets 35gr, but check you have to also check volume capacity. Not sure it can hold much more than 35 with RB. Not sure about the volume of the Kerr would clear, YMMV!
