I like round guards too. I had a SS SBH many moons ago and didn't care for the square guard.

Got you one of these yet?



Sadly, no. I perceive that to be a 2nd Model Dragoon; if so, it is on my "must have list", much more so than a Walker, but... then... geez...

Being on SS and no overtime "mad money" forthcoming, I need to space purchases out. Maybe Christmas 2016 if I am still vertical by then. I still have to obtain the Jordan/Watt treatise on the 1848/1849 Pocket, but that is still half the cost of an "on sale" 2nd Dragoon. I still have to concentrate on my 1851 variants before anything else.

Being on this very friendly forum (and other forums) and seeing the pics, reading the good info (as variable as it is), and having those posts fuel my pipe dreams sometimes makes me drool at times (more often than not).

Captain, thanks for approving my registration on the Collector forum. Don't know how much I can add but I will try if I deem info to be of some interest. I don't want to see it go away. Thanks be to you and Smokey.

Jim

Jim;
You're in. I approved you myself. I would love to see more activity on the forum, so by all means....post away!
I searched for your post #35 but don't think it was what you wanted. I suspect it was a victim of either the Great Black Powder Smoke crash of 2011 or auto pruning.

Here is the text from post #35:

"Terry, I need a NIB F series 1851 Navy - for the right price.  The boxed one I have has the slightest turn ring on it & I need one at 100% instead of 99.5%"

I'm logged in!

I know I previously mentioned a thread on the Black Powder Revolver Collecting Forum (2011) by Dr. Jim L. Davis on Colt Pocket Replica .31 Caliber Revolvers. I found a different one from 2011, and Strawhat, Fingers, and others partake of the discussion. Interesting read.

http://blackpowdersmoke.com/revolvers/index.php?topic=34.0

The one I have printed out has the same URL except for the topic # 35.0, about 6 hours later (according to the time stamp) and of course has a bit different content on the same subject, but I cannot find it to post a link.

And I just downloaded that 35.0 post only a few months ago, so I don't think it vanished, but it may be in the vapor, somewhere.

I did not mean "post #35". I meant the URL topic number, as I have in bold above. It may well be that it was lost in the meltdown. This is just to clarify.

Does that make sense?

Jim

Reenter the topic 34 URL and change the 34 to 35.  That should get you what you are looking for
