Colt Collecting / Re: Collector? I guess.

I don t  have the 2nd Gen wells Fargo though.  Instead, I have a  3rd Gen 1849.  I m  wanting the Wells Fargo though more and more.

There was no Wells Fargo inn the second Gens.  It is a baby Dragoon.  Dragoon has oval bolt stops while the Wells Fargo has rectangular bolt stops.

I guess I'm an Accumulating Collector.  Collect the 2nd Gens and shoot some of the 2nd Gens with the imported models I've accumulated, although I don't shoot them all.

You don't need Pbucket.  You can attach pictures from your computer directly to this forum using the Attachments and other options link in the reply screen then attaching the file.

Sorry to hear of the disgruntled members here. It is okay to put the sharks in line.
Anyway, love it or hate it, the 1858 Remington Forum will be back online soon.

Well, I for one will be very gruntled when the yahooos involved get their act together

Navy Models / Re: Another Misrepresentation On GB

To my knowledge, Pietta never produced a Leech and Rigdon. I have one but it can only be made by swapping barrel, cylinder, and frame with other pistols, all Pietta.

Jim

Pietta used to make Leech and Rigdon replicas.  Not sure when they dropped them from the product line though.

However, IMO there is a good case for limiting the number of rounds a magazine can hold. That would help the good guy with the gun. It would give a second or so for someone to take action as magazines are changed out.

Only problem with that is the bad guy doesn't obey the law.  Limiting mag capacity would only make the good guy waste time changing magazines.  Past experience with mag limits and Semi-Auto bans is that they make absolutely no difference in crime rate.  Bad guys don't obey the law - that's what makes them bad guys.

A lot (most) of the brass framed 1851s on GB are actually S&Gs.  Here's one for under $75 so far 722869403

Others are:

Colt has never had the information needed to letter a Sig Series.  All serial numbers and production data was maintained by Colt Blackpowder arms Co. Brooklyn, NY.

Walkers & Dragoons / Re: Tight arbor/barrel connection
« on: November 15, 2017, 10:16:53 AM »
You've run into the tapered arbor found on Walkers.  From the cylinder face to the end of the arbor it tapers approximately .050"  that's why it is stuck.
