Colt did nt  call them replicas (someone else copied them) or reproductions (original source recreates them).  The series was refered to as,-   'are being reissued', 'still being made',  'resuming production',  'returned to production'.

Curiously, in the booklet issued in the boxes with individual pistols, the arms are refered to as,- 'Muzzle loading cap and ball revolvers'.

Got the conical to fit in the 49.  Guiding the point first, and pushing the nose from the other side so the the snout goes into the plunger recess,  Wallah!  Goes in fairly easy.

Finally!  Conicals are  GO !

I ve  been shoot n   a lot.

I have to aim from 6''  to 36'' below the hit point depending upon the distance,-

10 yds  6''      40  24''       60  36''       80  12''  100  about right on.  This is rough.  I m  noticing I am aiming differently a lot.  Meaning-  I sometimes catch myself sighting the blade/bead at the very bottom of the hammer notch insted of level with the blade/bead at the top of the notch.  This, of course   r e a l l y   throws the numbers!  Still work n  it.

The sucker really arcs!

One thing is,-  I don t  have to aim    a b o v e    the hit point!

In The Sackets, the boys come across what is left of a family that was traveling West by wagon.  All is torn up, burning etc, with arrows and so on.  One of the actors is standing by an overturned wagon, right next to the wheel.  The closeup, as the actor is talking is with the wheel in the shot.  The tire is old and completely rusted like a wagon you d  see parked in front of Sam s  Old West Town.  Meaning,- That wagon did nt  just travel some thousands of miles or whatever.

Just something small, but interesting to see how movie folk,  just kinda hammer it together losing foresight of these little things.

Well, after some trials and confusion,  I have received one Collector s  Handbook & Price Guide #6 by Dennis Russell.

This thing is the S #@$ ! ! !   I am just beginning to go through it, it is amazing!  I am really having a good time with it.

'Yes- They Are Real Colts'  Stated on a pamphelet that came with the guide.

As I go through it,  I am   h o p i n g   to find clarity to some very elusive answers to questions I have, and I m  certain   m a n y   others have.

With reliable firing to minimize jams and cylinder cocking over/under, I fire, accurately once every three seconds.  This includes checking cyllinder for alignment, loading lever re-seat, cleared spent caps and wedge position.

Reload-  I can reload from standing in around 2 minutes.  Meaning,- reloading from my pouches and flask etc.  Not from everything layed out.  I have clips where I can quickly hang flask and others from my belt.  I charge all chambers with powder, place 2-3 balls at a time, cap/lube and   b o o m .

So, combining these two into a continual rate of fire , ,    w o o f  !  That s  gonna take some math.  ,,    where the fugger all did I put that abacus?!

I cast from the brass molds.  Only the Pocket Police takes the conicals.  The Navy and the 49, the conicals won t  fit through the loading cutout.

The Police    r e a l l  y   booms firing the conical.  Through a sheet steel piece of siding at 25 yards.

Can t  be done!  He s  dead!  Downed by a ball from either a Colts patent revolving belt pistol, or of the heavy four pounder, old Army types.  The ones carrying a ball of holster caliber.

You two,  my meaning is,-  I will send you the pistols, free from your end.  Meaning- No charge/I ll  send them.

One of you sent me a PM asking about payment/shipping.

Cap n,  You get yours too.

I am still   on go   with the plan of being in Scaramento on or about 1 Nov.  Meaning I ll  get the pistols at that time.  Sending them away sometime from that time on.  Should nt  take too long from that time.  No more than 10 days or so.
