Sounds like a nice shooter you found.   I'd be glad to find one just like it.

Nice! I had a chance to buy a really nice one made in the early 1880s for $800 back in the early 1990s, but turned it down as I thought the price was to high. (??

Mike,

Here is the link on The Firing Line forum. You have to be a member to see this page. I often see Hawg and Fingers over there.

BC,   I didn't know about the posting on The Firing Line forum.   I ran across Polish Cappers on a FaceBook page dealing with BP revolvers but there was little info.    No one here volunteered any info so I searched them out and ordered one to see for myself.  Glad it turned out I didn't waste $50.

Thanks for the report mike. Over the past few months, I've watched the progress of these cappers being designed and finally finished on The Firing Line website. With your excellent post, I may look into getting one now.

I posted a pic of the 1873 Colt parts gun somewhere, but this is a followup cause I can't find the original post. I've taken it out to shoot twice now, 75-80 rounds so far and it continues to please in every sense. Aims high, but it's a natural pointer and easy to hit a 8X8 clanger at 25 yds once dialed in. Checked all the non matching serial #'s and the earliest is 1874, the newest is 1917. Quite a spread and a tribute to Colt consistency in manufacturing over the years. The latest thing I found out is that the cylinder was sleeved to accept 32-20, I'm guessing it was a 38 Colt part originally. Again, smokeless 4g of Unique under  115g rnfp slug.

Ten is a nice round number.
The End ...........maybe  ::)
I disagree. Ten is what I would call "a good start".

What I tried to acomplish was and I think I did, is to have a variety that represents models from early to late production , as well as the Confederate copies of those that were made to help the South in their fight.
Given some restriction on me , mainly $, so availability of reproductions is important.
I would love to have a Whitney for example,where are reproductions ?  Therefore the Spiller & Burr will do.
