Remington, Confederate repro?
know that the confederate pieces often had brass as opposed to steel frame due to price.. least on the Colts.. Not sure about the checkered grips..
very nice mr Nobile..
Did you guys happen to read that i now have a 1851 Navy from EIG.. Haven't fired (or researced) it in any way.. cleaned and repaired.. seems to be real well made, brass frame, but has a lot of embossed scroll work that doesn't really work for me..
the original 1851 navy had the gulf battle sceen (5 ships i think) on the unfluted cyl. mine tho heavy and well made has continuation of the embossed scroll work..

Billy passed on the AR7, he has a bid out on 10 Colt Woodsmen pistols models spanning 10 years
that comment show me that "william" is smart.. guys theres not much more"investable" right now than Colt pistols.. the woodsman was one great and accurate little .22 auto..
Every since Colt made the call to discontinue pistol production..(out side of the custom shop and gen 3 SSA's) all Colt pistols have sky rocked in price..Everyone talks about Gold and Silver.. yep good investment stuff.. but a winner thats fun is Colt handguns..
Yep need mental help to.. pard check su posta
have you shot it yet?I thought long ago of getting a cap & ball like that :>) Got luck up a double barrel 44 cap & ball looks like a old pirate pistol.Never shot it says made in Italy on it ( I think as i greased it up when I got it) looks like mint con :>) have to dig it out and put up some pic's ............................................TY
black powder pistol,damned if i can remember where it went.
Next time I have time, I'll get my stuff out and take some pics. Kinda go through the steps and tools and materials for loading, firing and cleaning. Fun as hell and kills some time for sure.
My Brother has a replica as pictured above. The .36 Navy will bury up in a pine 2x4, the .44 will damn near cut it in half.
Never shot, brand new.
I don"t like spend much time for loading, but it"s verry nice gun.
