Signature or 3rd gen. Colt 1860 Army - Backstrap
« on: August 24, 2020, 10:38:06 AM »
I am new to these 3rd gen. Colt 1860 Armies.
Have a question for the owners of such percussion revolvers.
It is about the backstrap.
Is the steel backstrap a cast or welded together from parts?
Thanks,

Hi LJW   :D

The Backstrap is a standard Uberti Backstrap.  I believe them to be cast as they show separation marks from a mold.
