Too slow loading, Not accurate, hard to clean but looks nice. If a gunfight with B.P. guns like this lasted through 7 rounds, someone would be hurtin'. Does anyone know about using a spare loaded cylinder?
Nice gun. Original? or Replica?
A gift from my Step-daughter's husband. I made the mistake of mentioning how cool B.P. guns could be if gumment outlawed ammo and sure 'nuf, he bought the gun for me. Gotta be carefull what I say around him
Next time he's around tell him you want an XDm and then send it to me,lol
yep i know about them
yeah i know about them.. good..
to funny... course the issue is daisys got a navy replica in 38...might be why those 44's are so hard to load.. kidding lou, kidding.. does look just like a navy tho..
To answer the original question (mit oust der smart assn) yep.. read some time ago that the practise was to carry a couple of extras.. drive out the wedge and put a new cylinder in.. I know that Cabales sells them, and also remember seeing carriers for cylinders.. 19th century speed loaders..
I've tried. I will make my own, one more excuse to NOT use the Navy out the door.
Are you on your way to the range or are you going to stay home, make popcorn and watch soaps all day? LOL!!!
now that is funny shit!
what are friends for huh.. Old "Mr MAN".. confessed to daisy yesterday that new years plans included watching an (it gets worse) all day marathon of one of G's soaps..
What a loving husband huh... the "gig" thing.. we watched old "thin man" movies last night till midnight.. so todays all about "swell", "stir" "rod" "joint" and other slang from the forties..
they went the way of the dinosaur, isn't "reality tv" where it's 'at' now? I guess that I don't get out much........oh well, sounds horrible!
Good company and makes TBH happy so great way to start the New Year.. As to their "demise" .. Yep your right not a good subject for the wife.. After my mandatory "purgatory" i can understand.. They go way back.. It's escapism at its highest, but guess 1) your right their going off the air. 2) after more than 40 years. So a "history"..
OK.. This has reached a new LOW even for us.. A moratorium on soaps would be appreciated..
Anything but please..
happy! For me it is somewhat easy, TBH is off in Vegas working (massage therapy, not much work in UT) I take care of her son (almost 19, not much care to take) and deal with my two teenagers (now that's the bitch!) anyhoo, I'm not complaining, life is good!........I could us some more guns though.....LOL!
Nice. Good looking gun.
gave it back to him. He's a great guy. Happily divorced from step-dau-in-law, Has time to diddle with guns now.
But didn't have the patience for it. I traded for a CVA don't remember the model. It was awful the nipple fouled up ever friggin shot, I blamed the caps and tried a new can of caps, fouled up again and again and again so I traded off for 3 boxes of .45 ACP and a Black Hawk Serpa Holster for my 1911. Good riddance to it I will stick to my WWI to present weapons thank you lol! Occasionally I may shoot a friends BP revolver but its rare that it ever gets shot anyways.
thought was too much oil but after firing one cap the oil would be gone. Were you using Pyrodex? That's all I used, had no problems. I fired the gun so seldom that trying a different powder would have meant another can in my gun safe for eternity.
I'm curious what could cause that.
LBC, you know anything about black powder nipple fouling?
