Hi all,

My involvement with Black Powder began in 1986 when I made an impulse purchase of a CVA Colt Army percussion revolver kit at the local Service Merchandise store. Fitting and staining that kit gun was NOT a labor of love and it showed. I began to wonder what I had got myself into until I shot it for the first time. I could not get enough of the smoke, odor, dirt. The allure became a near obsession  :), my collection grew, I educated myself more about the percussion pistols, muzzleloaders, loads, FF vs FFF, et cetera. Thirty years later, I still have a good time with it. My latest acquisitions: 2014 Lancaster 44" Pennsylvania Flintlock, Uberti Colt 1st Model (Dragoon), Uberti Colt Walker w/ conversion cylinder. Currently looking for someone to rebate the conversion cylinder of the Walker to chamber the BPM cartridge. I look forward to continuing my education and good times here.

Swath, do you still need that Hawken pistol buttcap?

Do you have many Tranters or Adams?

Jax has done a lot of research and should be commended! He's found pics of so many that I have never seen before.

Does anybody make a true repro?...(five shot .36, frame smaller than a Navy, larger than the Pocket.)

I'll throw some of my stuff on here. I've been doing it for thirty-five years or so. Now making my own tools, stamps and such. Gun belts, holsters, shooting bags and what not. I like your floral work, Mike! I do some, but not enough to be that good!

I read about the slimmer profile thing too, but, any hit almost guaranteed to be fatal. Vital organs from hip to head, major blood vessels waist down. Dave Tutt was a fine example. That was the way it was taught until the 1950's or so. The two hand hold was still fairly new instruction when I joined the Navy in '75.
