Conversions / Re: 1860 Thuer Conversion
« Last post by Hewy on Today at 08:09:52 AM »
Mornin Mike, I do like the look of the Thuer . It does not take away the BP cylinder change
is the other benefit. My 1851 " Marine 44" could just be the candidate, along with a 1860.
You said the wait was worth it, they make these to order ? How long did you wait ?

Navy Models / Re: Poor Boy makeover
« Last post by ssb73q on Today at 04:55:08 AM »
Hi, shot the ten loaded cylinders (.380" ball, 20gr Black Mz) with Poor Boy Pietta 1851 yesterday. I had only two cap jams that were easily cleared. The air was hot and still where the smoke just laid in the range were seeing the targets was difficult. Slow fire groups, using two hands, from 25yds were ~2", consistent with my other 1851s. What's nice about the Poor Boy is that it has poi closest to poa of any of my other BP revolvers with the stock sights, shoots ~2" high. This Poor Boy is a keeper!

Regards,
Richard

I told Sam he should come up with a catchy name for it. He insisted on naming it with the date...

That's what they were called by the old timers when I was young.

Have enjoyed reading this thread! Let's not forget the scene in "The Last of the Mohicans" where Daniel Day-Lewis as Hawkeye takes out his priming horn and pours and pours what appears to be about 100 grains of powder into his flintlock's pan in order to make a long shot from the fort at a man quite a distance away.
