hi.. I'm a big ww2 collector but don't know much about the old stuff....
I saw what I believe to be an 1860 colt army.. I thought it was a civilian model as it does not have cartouche on grips or navy scene on cylinder
however it does have the lugs for stock..
Ö  what is throwing me off is the sn.. it has a second line on all places and its a zero or an o...
for example   22562    22562
                        0           0

in all of the sn# places
  its not bubba added..
is this some conversion variation.. but the gun is still in percussion marked 44 cal

I don't have pix at this time

thanks chad

Pictures would go a long ways in determining what you have. 

This forum is not very well utilized.  You would get more responses on TheHighRoad/index/blackpowder.org or thefiringline/blackpowder.com

Without pictures we canít really do anything

Civilian 1860ís had the naval cylinder scene what you have could be anything from a Belgian copy to a modern Italian copy. Are the screws metric?

Been using these lately and I'm very happy with the ease of use and results. Basically a pea sized ball of Gatofeo #1 that I drop in corn meal. The corn meal dusting makes the pills easy to handle with no sticky mess. They are dropped right on top of the powder charge(sometimes a paper cartridge without a bullet) and the ball rammed home. If shooting right away I don't use a card wad to separate  the lube and powder. These pills, for me, are a lot easier to make than the wool wads(which do work well) which have to punched out and soaked in lube in whatever manner is easy for you.
 I make the pills by pouring melted Gatofeo #1 into a lube ribbon extruder which produces a 1/4" X 1/2" ribbon. I then cut off a small piece, roll it in my fingers to a rough ball shape and drop them in the corn meal. This makes carrying the pills--in the field or Cowboy match, etc.--convenient as they are easy to handle and don't stick together. I just put the finished pills in some type of small container such as a shoe polish can or Altoids tin and off you go. The corn meal dusting also seems to help keep the pills from drying out. I have more testing to do in that regard, but so far some of the pills are more than three months old and working fine. I found it expedient to slightly vary the size of the pill between the 36's and 44's. Except for the Dragoons-- I just drop two of anything down that cavernous chamber. :)
