    Sheriffs model and things to come

    8 I just got me a new Taylor/Pietta 1851 Navy with 4-7/8 barrel in .44 cal. I like the checkered grips but I bet after prolong shooting your hands will get tender. I will be putting this 4 and 7/8 barrel on a 1860 birdshead frame like the picture above but that picture is on a 7.5 inch barrel...

    Where to get parts at

    Let's say i want just parts, where do i get them. Where can I get just grip frames or a frame or just a barrel? Let's say I want a Pietta birdshead grip frame. Can I order one from Pietta? Let's say I want a London grip frame to replace a brass one. Where can I get one. Thanks, Bob

    I want faster fps. Can I go 4F? I don't want to have to go to modern substitute. How about powder dust? How much can colt clones take before breaking?

    1851 or 1860 barrel?

    I have a Pietta 1860 stubby (birds head grip) but am going to put a 5 inch barrel on this birdshead grip frame so I can have a loading leave and have a little better ballistics. I like the 1851 (in .44 cal) barrel but am kind of interested in opinions and likes. Who prefers an 1851 barrel...

    Weird combination

    I use the loading lever on my 1851 in .44cal to load the cylinder on my 1860 snubby. The 51 barrel looks good on the birdshead grip. Any other cool combinations out there?

    Stuck wedge

    The wedge on my 1860 was so tight I could not get it out, I had to use 3 hands to get it out. Now I have scratched up the finish. How can I fill in the scratches? It's a black blue, anybody sell a bottle or repair blue.

    Sling for muzzleloader

    I seen a sling on a Renegade that I like and was wondering where to get one. It was made of leather and it was just a pocket for the rifle butt and a leather strap that wrapped around the barrel. Do they sell them somewhere or is that something I have to make myself?

    How many Senica barrels?

    How many barrels are made for the Senica? I know of a .36 and .45. Is there also a .32 and a shotgun barrel? What is the shotgun barrel and how hard to find are they? Are they hard on the stock? Is .32 easy to find?

    History correct?

    What makes a knife history correct. At one time all blade shapes have been used so how can anybody say it's pre 1880s or pre1750. Are any of these designs pre 1840 design? How do you know?

    Interested in a Ruger Old Army. I like my colt copy but my son wants an old army. I want 2 of them blued with 5.5 inch barrels and no wear. No conversion cylinder needed. May consider 7 inch stainless for hunting if it's in great shape and reasonable price.

    Cleaning Senica

    The Senecia I'm playing with right now has not been cleaned in about 20 years. It's a clean rifle and no rust but the stock and hardware is kind of dull and needs polished up. What's the best way to clean up stock to give it a nice shine. Not a reflective shine but more of a deep shine.

    Half cock

    Maybe my brain is tired but I always remember single action revolver cylinders are free wheeling at half cock which is second click out of 3 clicks. My 1860 is free wheeling on first click and really no click at all, you just have to pull hammer back a bit and feel the cylinder. What is wrong...

    My new 1860 snub nose.

    These are way nicer in person than they are in pictures. Very very nice. You know how sometimes you want a gun really bad and once you pay for it and play with it your kind of disappointed, not this one. More thrilled now than my first thought of it. Getting ready to go shoot it. In a one...
