Don't know, it might be normal for him or the Ruger Old Army but I've never had any problems with my Ubertis and Piettas.I just watched the Manny CA video with him firing the Ruger Old Army. Seems like about 1 of 3 or 4 shots misfires. Is that normal for blackpowder percussion revolvers. He took it in stride, but I would find that extremely frustrating.
No it’s not normal. He either has a dirty gun, wrong caps or something else that is not the guns fault.I just watched the Manny CA video with him firing the Ruger Old Army.

I watched another video where a guy had the old army and another more accurate replica side by side comparing them. I’m starting to see the beauty in the older guns. I think they look more elegant than modern weapons.Even though I love and prefer the awesome Brass Framed 1851 Navy Griswold & Gunnison, I have to take my hat off and respect the slim and sleek lines of the McCollough Colt 1860 Army.
Who knows if the word, ergonomic, had been coined back then? However, there is no question that Samuel Colt understood the concept!Just work your way through season one and two of bonanza. About the 3rd time you see Joe cartwright drop to his knees in an instant to get his chest out of the way of some outlaws shot, simultaneously drawing his colt navy,, and slapping the hammer and dropping the guys partner you'll realize just how pretty those 7.5" barreled '51 navies really are. And then about the first time you sit on your couch and point from the hip at the light switch, you'll realize how beautifully they were designed to be shot with only a mere point of your wrist.
