The new-to-me pistol is shooting left. I found the barrel is slightly turned to the right.


Is it a pinned barrel?
If not maybe you could do something like this

The Bisley saw use South of the Border simply because it was in stock - not because it was admired.

if you look closely at photos of the Villistas, you'll see S&Ws, OpenTops, Forehand & Wadsworths,, Hopkins and Allens, Iver Johnsons - pretty much every revolver that was on the shelf and had ammunition was usable.

By the time of introduction, the Frontier West was done, save for the Dime Novels - 'civilization' and the railroad saw to that - making trail drives short-distance affairs - and the Army pretty well ended any threat from hostiles, so the Bisley likely was purchased because there weren't any SAAs at the dry goods and the buyer didn't want to wait.

Scouts Out!

Cas City Historical Society / Colt Bisley use
« Last post by LongWalker on Today at 06:26:05 PM »
In 1892, after tests at Governors Island NY, the Krag Jorgenson rifle was adopted as the standard rifle for the US military.  In 1893, historian Frederick jackson Turner said the American frontier was gone.  In 1894, Winchester brought out the 1894 rifle, and Colt introduced their Bisley model. 

The 1894 Winchester was quickly adopted, and was used by lawmen, outlaws, revolutionaries, and "just folks".  The Bisley . . . "not so much".  It was a favorite of Pancho Villa; some of the Dorados and Villistas adopted it (when available) out of admiration.

But was the Bisley used by any other notable lawmen/outlaws?  I couldn't sleep the other night, and got to wondering about this (because when you can't sleep, why not?).  Anyone have any examples?

I have for sale a like new Uberti Russian. The barrel is stamped .44 russian, but it will chamber and fire .44 special. Good shooter. I'll also throw in a Schofield trigger guard you can swap out in case you don't like the russian spur. Comes with box. Asking $940 shipped and insured, my FFL to yours.

Brownells order placed ... initially I was only going to get the .45 cal bore bushing, since most of my revolvers are in that range but I added a .357/.38 bushing also, since I do have a few revolvers in that calibre range, and a few friends with some as well ...

Clearly he unterstands


Clearly you speak dog.

It would have been my reply as well. Dogs truly know that meaning.
