Here is my .44 that I bought in 1974. The manufacturer's mark is either PAG or RAG, I can't tell for sure. I have a spare cylinder also. Since the pistol is a brass frame model, I only shoot 24 g of real BP. It has always been properly cleaned and cared for and has never failed to fire. I can hit what I shoot at pretty well. The holster is a Navy Arms. It has been several years since the gun has been fired but I plan to "get back into it". I just bought a nice 1977 vintage .45 caliber long gun that I posted pics of in the percussion rifle forum and I plan to shoot both guns some when the high 90 temps are over with here. Cooler fall weather should be coming soon.
