Those are some nice guns. Any info on the gun the boy with the green shirt has? I want to get my Son a bp rifle but most youth models I've seen are sub par at best.

I've been eyeing them for years because theyre so cheap, but I figure there's a reason why.
Buy a steel framed one, not brass. The brass ones aren't as strong.

This thread is making me long for the push of a black powder gun. Thanks for the info nessy357. I've never seen anyone fire a black powder gun and not smile. Kinda like kicking over a two stroke for the fist time.

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.

Along those lines, the Remington-type revolvers with a top strap over the cylinder are stronger than the Colt clones that do not have this strap.

Brass frames were made and used primarily in the south during the war when there were not the steel supplies available. These days they are a little cheaper to make, but the brass being softer does not survive long term usage. The weapon gets very "sloppy" in all its fitments. Seen a few like that over the years.

Case hardened wrought iron and steel always are stronger than cast brass. Solid top straps stabilize barrel vibrations for long term use and accuracy.

But really I love the open top Colts, the tip up and top break S&W's, and probably the most complicated revolver - Merwin & Hulbert.



The Skull-Cracker grip is gruesome. I really need to acquire one of these mechanical puzzles.
