Another morning of can poping with the G&G , I love shooting this pistol. I ordered a spare cylinder that is from the same time and make . Hope I can get it to work / fit as good as the original one . A spare cylinder loaded would be nice for woods walking.,,,DT

I'm not sure Lefty , It was sold as a Navy  Arms I think was a long time ago 1977 if I remember . The one that was just purchased  said it was a Sile i think, supposed to be circa 1976 . Pic's of the spare cyinder look's like the one on my pistol before i turned the roll marks off. ,,,DT

I have a Griswold & Gunnison made by (marked) High Standard. Bought it new in 1976. Does not have any proof marks. Serial #013xx.
Shot it along with a 2nd Gen Colt 1851 Navy at a lot of cap & ball / muzzle loader matches about that time frame, never lost a match.

Can find no makers mark on this one , has a sr# two proof marks on frame and barrel lug and the yr. code AD think that makes it 1978 . For some reason I have shot this one better than any other pistol i have .  It took some time to get it smoothed out and good springs in it , but the accuracy was always there. The grip angle on the G&G is different than the 1851 that i have . Is the grip angle on yours different than the 51' Ringo?

Actually the grip angle is just about identical.

Spare cylinder came in the mail today , looks good . Fits the G&G , best I can tell it looks like the same make whatever that is . Looks like it stops where it should and has no shake or slop . Need to turn - off the roll engrave like the original. The G&G should be slick sided . Now to make a spare cylinder pouch , Bunnies better look out ,,,DT

I can relate to the joy of shooting a firearm from youth.  I am waiting (not so patiently) for the gunsmith to repair my old single-shot 12 ga.  The stock is very loose, so is the lockup (the pin that holds the barrel to the breech is very worn).  The gun was originally given to my dad by a neighbor, when he was very young.  He gave it to me to use on my first squirrel hunt.  The gun is over 100 years old, as the mfg quit making them in 1910.  I plan to use it in some CAS events.  It is a bit slower than a SxS, being a single-shot, but I'm not in it for time as much as for the fun of it.

The cylinder looks great with the roll engraving removed.
