Show your black powder rifles and revolvers

I like the old stuff. I have a replica 1858 Remington .44 cal. revolver and a newly manufactured, Thompson Center .45 cal. Seneca rifle.

What do you have??

No black powder here, but I recently enjoyed some deer jerkey courtesy of a female friend of my wife's who took that deer with a black powder rifle. I don't know what she's shooting. I'll have to ask her the next time I see her.

I like the squeak black powder makes when it ignites.

One of these days when I have extra cah I am planning on buying either a York or Lancaster from Jim Chambers. Hopefully it will look something like this when I'm done with it. This one is for sale on Track of the Wolf.

Got one on order right now, from Ron Luckenbill. Pricey but it's an heirloom piece that's set up for hunting. It's a copy of an ancestor's rifle and Ron's been able to view some originals for modeling it. Can't wait 'til it's finished.

I've got a Walker repo like that. I've killed wild hogs with it.Most people don't know it was the most powerful handgun until the .44 mag almost 100 years later.

The Walker is one powerful handgun. I'd like to have one someday.

This is my Hawkin .54 cal. It has never had anything but patch and ball through it. I really think the sabots are overated. At least where I hunt. I have killed 20+ deer with this rifle. The set trigger is just perfect for the delay. I've had it for 30 years and have not touched the adjustment.

I started shooting BP back about 1969, with a small .40 cal Dixie Gun Works flintlock rifle, and a sawed-off Model 1842 .69 cal Springfield musket (that I still have). My interest has waxed and waned over the years, but right now, I'm building a Northstar West flintlock Trade Musket kit. I've been doing Civil War reenacting for a number of years, so I've been shooting a lot, but just not hitting anything. Here's a few:

Model 1861 and 1863 Springfield .58 cal rifled muskets, and a Manhatten .36 revolver:



Here's a pair of CVA Mountain Rifles, in .45 and .50 cal. These are the early "Made in USA" ones:



Here's the Trade Gun. I've made considerable progress since this photo-all that remains is to drill and tap for the touch hole liner,and then start sanding and finishing.

Hokay, I am a gun owner, but not a diehard gun hobbyist. But the old west revolvers and suchlike just look like too much fun. As an entry into this sort of thing, what would y'all think of this;

Other recs for revolvers would be great as well, but keep in mind the girlfriend is keeping an eye on the accounts.

Check the "I LOVE THIS GUN THREAD" for better info, but I've eyed them for a couple of years.

A lot of the reviews say that people usually end up filing down the front sight slightly and there's a pin in the rotating mechanism somewhere that comes loose occasionally and can be permanently fixed.

Most people seem to really like them for the price tag.

Pics of new 1860 Colt replica

Well, it came via UPS today! 1860 Colt .44 cal. replica purchased from Cabelas (on sale for $199.99). I plan on giving it a work out this weekend.

My 1858 Remington .44 was getting lonely, so now all is well.
