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..
  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 cant really do anything

Civilian 1860s 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. :)
