Barrels are bored crooked. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Nice! They sound way more accurate than my Browning pistol (Umarex) but it's fun for basement plinking.

Nice! What caliber/load workup?
I have a Lyman Plains Pistol in .50 that shocked the $hit out of me with it's accuracy at 25 yards.

Richard, I am working on a 12-year old bottle of Glenlivet single malt my son gave me. Like any poison, it's best taken in small doses. ;)
Good stuff.

I'm thinking too high. A good price on an unfired brasser would be around $140. You might break even but you won't make anything on it.

Sounds great!

Reading this, from a performance point of view, I fired the 1849 Pocket and the Pocket Police from 25 yards at a sheet steel siding piece.  The .31 dented it and the .36 went through it.

I was surprised as to how powerful the .36 Pockets are.

I wouldn't expect them to be much less powerful than a Navy. Ask Davis Tutt about that one...

Finally...FINALLY! to the range. Don't ask how long it's been... ^j)
I was a man on a mission; I had two guns I've been itching to try:

1) The 1860 Army I bought from Tom-ADC and had 'Goonerized'
2) The 2nd Dragoon, 'Joaquin Murietta' that I got from Krylandalian and also had 'Goonerized'.

Both a point...and came back in one piece.

1860: Stayed rock solid, but I wasn't shooting paper and could not ring the gong at 25 more than 3 times in a row. Not sure why. Possibly because the shooter hasn't shot BP for longer than he cares to discuss, but I let my buddy Steve shoot it and he did worse. I suppose since I didn't shoot paper I got nothing to bitch about. The loading lever is stiffer than a sailor after a night on the town and the palm of my hand hurts like hell as a result.

2nd Dragoon: Also couldn't stay consistent. Shots were all over the place. Tried some Lee 200gr conicals, the Dragoon did not like to load them an in fact totally squashed two of them beyond use due to cocking them sideways. Dropped the loading lever on every single shot like clockwork, even with 45gr and .454 RB's. Out of each cylinder full, two chambers were 1st time misfires every time, but fired the second time around. Probably needs a new set of nipples.

Both guns have the Goon cap rake, and while neither experienced a cap frag jam, the rake did allow the spent caps to deposit themselves nicely between the cylinder and recoil shield, making it a mother to rotate, several times requiring assistance. Not a knock on the cap rake by any means (or Goon's work, for that matter) but just sayin', if a Colt don't eat caps it's gonna spit 'em out and you might not like where they go.

Today was definitely not a comparative evaluation by any means, more just a 'test run' to see how they function. And they did, for the most part. I used up the tail end of a can of RS in my Lyman Trade Rifle with a price sticker on the lid; "$12.95"...good grief, you know how old THAT'S gotta be? Went off without a hitch. The Pyro P I shot today was at least 4 years old, no issues.
All in all...beautiful weather, relaxed no-pressure shooting...what more could you ask?
Now if you'll 'scuze me, I gots some guns ta clean...

Yep. And it will feel better than any store-bought gun you can buy. He did my Army and it's unreal.
