1851 Navy. Steel frame. .36 caliber.I wonna buy a second revolver and yeah, want to aks for your recommendations and experience with differnet modells
I already have a Rogers & Spencer made by Neumann-Pietta in the middle eighties.
I fell into the strong conviction that I need a second revolver and that it should be a replica of one of the modells from Colt.
The octagonal barrel from the 1851 Navy whispers take me.
On the other hand, the Walker say take me.
Than the dragoons tipp on the shoulder, what is about us?
Only one revolver to buy. No more.
What purpose is the revolver intended for?
Well, must be good enough to do competiton at 25m and have a fair chance to get good groupos.
Shall be fun to shoot, easy to clean, good to maintain, lovely outlook without being overdone ..., most probably a replica by Uberti.
Thank you very much already now for your help and encouragment.
Those Pachmayrs made my Old Army shoot so much better, way tighter groups than spraying the target!You mentioned target shooting. Get an Old Army, install one of Jim Clark's replacement rear sights, Pachmayr grips and get an adjustable over travel rod.
20 gr FFg and equal amt of cream of wheat filler. .457 ball covered with patch lube. 100-5X or better is possible @ 25yd. Best I've done in a match is 97-5X but the eyes are gettin old.
