My fire sticks:

Pietta Kentucky Long Rifle



Uberti Colt 1860 Army:



And my newest acquisition, a Cimarron 7th Cavalry 1873 Single Action Army.  A pleasure to shoot, and boy does she like black powder loads!



I also have a 1795 Springfield repro, but no good pictures of it.  'sides, that's way too old fashion for this forum.  ;D

Stainless Steel Uberti 1861 Navy
« Reply #409 on: July 17, 2014, 06:54:10 pm »
I have been wanting a Stainless Steel Uberti Colt 1861 Navy for many moons,  The second Generation Colts are a bit out of my price range - they only made 8 and the last one sold at auction last fall for $22,000+; you heard right $22,000+.  So, I've resigned myself to being satisfied if I could find one of the Uberti made SS 1861 Navies that were made back in the mid 1980s - quantity of which are unknown.  Well, I finally have one coming.  Mfg 1984, Allen Firearms, Santa Fe, NM barrel address.   

Here are a couple pictures:





Will take some better ones when it arrives

Thought I would add my two cents on pictures.  The first are a pair of  45LC Ruger RVs with 38gn of FFg and a 250 gr boolet.  The second is a night shoot with my mighty 10g with 120gns of FFg.

Bruce,

Try the Search window by typing in something like "Cap & Ball.com".
You will find 36 pages of reading under just that search suggestion.
Some of these will have images and others will offer videos.

Thanks, Blair:

I have been working to be able to distinguish among these many fine pieces, if
only to keep from making a complete fool out of myself on an International forum.

Bruce,

Right!
And the road to maintaining that power is a good personnel reference Library. Another words books!
You may not be able to keep all you will learn from books separated in your head, but you will always have the information at your finger tips.

Why did you remove the Creedmore sites?
How you planning on making those 200-300 yard shots without a decent site?  :o

They are a matched pair of Cimarron (Uberti) Cattlemen in 45 LC.

Here's some of my others...NMV in only used 777 in 357's for one match.  Got plenty of smoke and bang.
I'll be using these or my Remmie NMA copies until the Cattlemen are running smoothly again.  Plan to use 3f Goex with the Vaqueros next time....now that I have proper lube on my bullets...

Here's my pistol, Pietta 1851 Confederate Navy.  I've had her since 2002.  Best shootin' pistol I've owned. My son took this on our latest trip to the range.  Lookin' to gettin' her a sister.  Can't have too many. ;)



And my favorite huntin' rifle I got, even more than my Winchester 94 .30-30. CVA Bobcat .50, shoot that with about 85-90g Pyrodex RS.  Might try switching it up this year and using 3F Goex in it too.



Thanks for lookin.

Is this a 5 shot 36cal pistol? A small frame pistol? I have one that looks exactly like this one, but its a small pistol and I havent found a way to identify it. I cant tell the size on this one here.

The pictured gun is an 1851 Navy (6 shot .36).  You may have an 1849 model, they look very similar, just smaller.  Colt pocket models are described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colt_Pocket_Percussion_Revolvers

What I'm wondering, what is that gizmo in front of the trigger guard?  A lanyard/saddle-ring of sorts?

It is a sling swivel, meant to work in conjunction with the sling swivel on the butt stock when the two were attached.
A revolver of this type (in fact this maybe a copy of that same revolver) was presented to US Secretary of War Jefferson Davis during the  mid 1850's. One of those promotional things Colt likes to do.
