Mike, is that sitting on a pic of Frank James in the background?
FJ was a lifelong fan of the '75 Remmy.

So, if I may ask, what did Frank use during the ACW, especially in the guerilla years and afterward pre-1875?

I have not seen it mentioned. I would assume '58 Remmy but that's my own speculation.

The former CEO of Makers Mark has a 51 navy he says was Franks gun that Frank gave to his great great grandfather for hiding him in his store the day before he surrendered. His last gun was a 1903 Colt. He also has Franks CW pardon. https://civilwartalk.com/threads/frank-james-1851-navy-colt.107799/

I have one of these. Nice gun, and not your standard 1873 clone.

Thanks Kirk. I was not that far away. Had some distractions with a long, hot, dry summer. Bad fire danger for months and the thickest smoke in the air that seemed dismal. Also spent some time getting a JK Jeep to my liking. Since the first of September, I have been in the woods every free minute that I am not working. I have not shot a Colt all summer, so I did not have much to post. I am going to spend every spare minute of November in the woods too. The woods are a good place to be. After that, I will get back to messing with the Colts and posting more.

Well, you were missed. Trust me. Hope to see you back around more once you get your woods-runnin' out of your system! L@J
