The CENTAUR was the first of the repro revolvers -- despite what the books say about Navy Arms. Very hard to find. That was my first "modern" ML revolver , bought from Roberts gunshop near Trafalgar Square in 1962 or 3.
Here is an unfired (can't find any evidence of it being fired) 1960 Belgian made Centennial Arms (Centaur) 1860 Army. Just some very slight handling marks. This is one that will remain unfired.

I have attached scans of the brochure that I got in 1962 or 63 when I bought my first "repro" ML Revolver. I had my first Firearm Certificate and it was authorised as a "collectors item" but without a condition that it was not to be fired.

OOPS! Forgot to mention that in those days it was about 4 bucks to the pound. I was doing a year as an "unqualified teacher" to decide whether to go to College. My take-home pay was £49 a month, so the £32 would have been a big hole but luckily I was doing some semi-pro tuba playing and used that to justify splashing out ;-)

I need to get more of mine together for photos, still need a couple 1860 army and 1862 Polices. Love those looks. I did run mine briefly at a carbine/pistol class earlier this year alongside a bunch of modern guns. (Put a cheap EBay holster on a QLS duty holster mount)

Is your Rogers & Spencer a Euro arms?? If so how do your like it? I have the chance to get one cheap so I'm just curious. Thanks and nice collection!
Thank you.

Yes, Euro Arms. I like it. It is not better or worse than a Colt or Remington style gun, just "different". If you have a chance to get one, I would suggest that you do. If you don't like it, it would be easy to sell.

Yes ,thats what I was thinking too. I can't see me not liking it though haha. The only thing I don't like is that is has no safety notches/pins but I figured thats fine for the range. I usually carry my navy in the woods anyways.

Here is a defarbed signature series that I just got done with! I got it yesterday and went to work. It was shot and not properly cleaned, bore and cylinders are perfect but had some problems on the exterior so I figured let’s get rid of that dreaded colt signature on the blackstrap! So here it is I think it turned out alright!

you dropped your extended magazine on the ground, did it fall out of your revolver from recoil? LOL.
