The smaller, bottom revolver looks like a brass framed version of the 1862 Pocket Police model. It looks like it might be a Pietta. 8)

I might be wrong...  nothing unusual, but I thought the #5 Paterson revolvers had the loading lever. My Uberti Paterson does. 8)

Look up Little John's.  I think they might be in Orange County. My valentine had to sell off her father's collection several years ago, and used his services. 8)

Whenever I pass an officer stopped alongside the road, I always check to see if I can see him/ her. If they are sitting in the car, that's fine. If they are outside the vehicle on the ground or in a struggle, I stop to help. 8)

Thank God for that good Samaritan.

I just picked up my second Walker. This one is a Second Generation one. New in the box, and never fired. Sort of a Christmas present to myself. Now I have one for each hand. :-*  8)

General Discussion / Re: Would you buy a used BP revolver?
« on: October 31, 2016, 10:40:26 AM »
I have purchased used black powder revolvers in the past. Ones that I would look for are from people who bought them new, and want to sell them. I ask why they are being sold and the usual answer is that they take too much time etc. and are not like the modern cartridge guns. They have lost interest in them because of the time involved caring for, and cleaning them. I guy I met even gave me a brand new, in the box Traditions 1851... 44 cal. He got it and after looking at the thing he put it away for a couple of months. Then he decided it was way above his head. He wouldn't take anything for it. I thanked him for the gift. I sold it at the next rendezvous I attended for what the thing nearly cost new. I never even fired it.  8)
