Great pair of revolvers 8) 8) 8) 8)

I hope I have not created any confusion, the beautifully engraved and plated Colt 1862 was merely inspiration and has never even been seen by my eyes except in photos.

The story of this Colt is found here, and it is an interesting read.

And while I wish it were in my possession, I am glad it remians int he original family and they seem to understand the role it played in history.

Conversions / Richards Model

To open this category, an old shot of my Richards conversion.  This revolver is cut for the original 44 Colt cartridge and is a joy to shoot.



Nice smooth path to the chambers.



With a watch from 1870 built by the National Watch Co.



And finally with another conversion, a bastardized conversion no less!
