Very nice! I have to admit, I wasn't aware of the 1861 with fluted cylinders. I'd like to have one too, but I'll bet they are scarce.

Welcome! I see that you're a member of the Ruger Old Army Club on the High Road like I am.

Thanks for the info Richard. I have the Kirst .22 cylinder in my 1860 Colt Army, just thinking about getting the 1851 Yank to use it in.

Is that the same revolver that you use with the Kirst .22 cylinder? If so, how does it shoot with the taller front sight?

I own the same set of Grace BP screwdrivers that Mike has pictured above. They work great on my Pietta's and Uberti's along with my Ruger Old Army.

Alright Miguel you're here now. Welcome! My name is also Michael, but my wife and sister-in-law call me "Mik" (short for Mick), my friends call me Mike, and my kids call me Dad.

My very first cap and ball revolver was just like the one in the gunbroker link. It may well have been an EIG. I bought in 1969.

So sorry for your loss mike. Dogs are truly family. My dog is 16, almost 17. Never had a dog that has lived this long before. Most have passed at around 15. He is showing signs of going soon though.

Really nice mazo!
I remember reading years ago, on some black powder forum, that USFA did, or was going to make 1851 Navy revolvers. They also had some kind of deal to make 1858 Remington cap and ball pistols for Remington, but the deal fell through.

It's been a while since I made smoke too. Got to get out there and shoot!

We have a good rendezvous friend who lives close to us. He is a farrier by trade, a good artist as a second trade, and he has a mule for riding. We just don't have any "mountains" over 1500 feet above sea level near us! Congratulations Scooby, I know we will see many more pictures of you and your new companion.

Yes, I guess it depends on where one lives. My house sits at over 4,100 feet with the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains towering 10,000 feet above that. Like Idaho, perfect terrain for a mule.

Congrats Scooby from my hometown, the Mule Capital of the World! I've ridden both Mustangs and Mules in the mountains and the mule is far superior on rough and narrow trails.
