Howdy from the High Sierra of Calif!
« on: November 24, 2015, 08:51:45 PM »
At the urging of Captainkirk on the 1858 Remington forum, I decided to join in here after lurking for a while. I like shooting my Remington's, but love my Colt's too. Here is my current collection of Colt's:

First is a Uberti Cimarron Walker followed by my Signature Series 1860 Army, then a 2nd Gen "C" Series 1851 and below that is an American Frontier Firearms 1851 .Richards 38 conversion and finally an "F" series 1862 .36 Police.

A big Buckeye welcome to you.

That Pocket Police is a good looking revolver.  I am partial to them myself.

Thanks StrawHat. I like my Colt .36 Police too. I have only used .375 balls in it but have read that the .380 round ball is a better fit for the 2nd Gens. Going to have to get my hands on some one of these days.
