I kind of like the looks of the Traditions Pioneer Pistol in .45 cal. I own a Traditions Trapper pistol and want to pull the
rear sight and install a fixed one. Their Kentucky pistols look nice as well. All are affordable for the time frame we wish
to pursuit. The Lyman Plains pistol is the Cats Meow for store bought single shots.

This rig is from my good buddy Al Soellner at Chisholm's Trail Leather in Newnan, GA.  It is the # LD-1 ~ Capt. Gus McCrae rig from the Lonesome Dove collection:

Howdy,
What would be the choices for a pistol in the 1840's.  Both Colt and non Colt.

Regards
Colt

Here are the revolvers I use for NCOWS matches:

'36 Paterson, '47 Walker & '48 Dragoon
