Hi Hewy, what's the difference between the 1851 with a different name?

Regards,
Richard

L&R models have a steel frame and round barrel, not octagon like the one pictured in Midway's ad.

Iím in the market for a L&R but an 1851 Navy by any other name is still an 1851 Navy.  Pietta should sell a Leech; they already make the right parts.
Nothing is as it appears.  They never thought she would loose.  We, the people, are what they are afraid of.  Patriots don't sleep.

Hi Richard,
As Mike sez it has a round barrel, but the significance to me is that Leech & Rigdon copied Colt 1851 but made their guns for
the South during the Civil War. So being a  )-* I got mine for that reason. I have a few other CSA guns.
