Still looking for this.  I want it.  My collection, short of various others that I may become interested in, ,  I want a  basic example of all the Colts.,  as near as the originals as possible.  This means Colt/Colt BPAC are the only two sources I am considering.

Anyway,  I will gladly give a finders fee,  a nice one! ,  to anyone that can help me with this.

Right you are Hawg!  Articles, newspapers or TV , ,  those suckers just make shite up!  It s  more like,-  Speculative/entertainment/opinionated/ ' journalism'  reporting.

Wholly Flint sparks!  He certainly fuggered that away.  Shortfired (unintentionaly discharged) that heavy flint lock just before he was to take his coin tossed won first shot in a duel,-

Interesting,-  In building my new collection by ridding of all my replicas and replacing them with 2nd Gen Colts,  the first Colt I got was the biggest (Walker).  The last I got was the smallest (Baby Dragoon).

Yeah,  Knocked it off where it was lying and it fell on my foot.  Bruised my toe.  It was in its holster.  Glad it was!

In a  1837 article about Colts pistols, the cylinder is refered to as the 'receiver'.

In an article from the 1980s the frame is refered to as the 'receiver'.

Colt Collecting / Re: Are the "real" Colts that much better?
« on: February 11, 2018, 02:08:57 PM »
Y e s .

Got the Baby Dragoon.  The finish and markings anyway.  They re  so much better in appearance and so on.  Comparing the Model 48 Pocket to the Model 49 (48 2nd Gen, 49 3rd Gen)  The 48 is so much better finished than the 49. ,  which is much better than any replica.

The actions are hit and miss though.  Of all of mine, two of them are flawless in fit and action- 2nd Gen Second Dragoon and 3rd Gen WH Dragoon.
