Went in looking for a pair today.  The Wahs were heavier material in general, and fit better.  When I tried FC I had to go up a size larger in the waist so I could find a pair with the legs big enough around to fit my thighs.  That larger size in the Wahs would be slightly large in the waist, but the legs were huge.  There was a fair bit of difference from one pair to the next even within the same brand.  I'll be ging back and just finding the best compromise.  A good chance I'll go with the larger size, then take the legs in a bit.  The other option is going to be to find a pattern and make them to fit myself.

Video was fun BUT - not fair ---he only loaded 30 grains powder for all three ? - a fair test woulda been load em all to capacity - so you get five or six more grains powder under a round ball than the conicals will take - better velocity would cancel out some of the conical ""advantage""

Upon further reflection (and more shooting)...
I've decided to leave the trigger pull as-is.
I like the idea of shooting it as it was built to be shot.
It's just a privilege to have a chance to shoot a piece of history.

Some fakes have been made but most collectors will pick out any thing I'm doing. The real Colts have progressive rifling amongst other things. The manufacturing of replicas don't bother to do a lot of details to sell a product that satisfies the market that only requires a gun " that looks fine from the freeway". I enjoy detailing my guns to work well and celebrate the quality that we once expected of them.
Now shall we get back to refining this pistol or have I up set enough folks to just keep it to myself?

there is a Third Model sitting on my bench. Interesting gun to shoot with plenty of oomph if you want to stoke it up, but the thing really needs a wheels and trails.

Ah My Dear Bunk -
You have voiced my feelings exactly!

I "always wanted" a Walker, until I handled one.
Then I "always wanted" a Dragoon, until I lucked into a pair of "fixer-upers" ... and tried to hang them from holsters.

These are Definitely Horse Pistols, to be hung from saddle-holsters!

Ah My Good Bunk -

I am in full agreement with Coffin and Pettifogger.

Having come to this venue as a refugee from the Rondy-vooz, I myself have always loaded "sprue-up" and centered as nearly perfectly as possible.

When loading a patched ball in a muzzleloading rifle, an off-center sprue can make the difference between winning and losing a 100 yd paper-punching match. But With a C&B revolver at 10yds, this probably doesn't matter so much :-)

BTW I have to ask if any of the newcomers are aware of the meaning of our Learned Collegue Pettifogger's nome-de-plume?

Doesn't really make any difference.  However, with the sprue up it is easier to make sure it is not facing the side of the chamber.  (For newbies, if the sprue is on the side the ball might not seal the chamber.)

With cast balls, I have always oriented the ball sprue UP before ramming.

If you are a young whippersnapper and feel strong go for it, but a .44 caliber 1860 Army for a finishing shot is plenty big enough.
With one caveat, the game laws in some states forbid carrying a hand gun so if the law allows it do it, otherwise a big NO
Lots of folks had their tickets punched by .44 caliber revolvers during the late unpleasantness 1861-1865 so a small critter like a deer using a slug rather than a ball should do the trick. Check the you-tube video  by Bottom Dealing Mike on .44 Army ballistics.
