Yeppers, onliest thing correct about it is the caliber - .36.  Tweren't no brass '51s; and no sheriffs model '51s, and no '51s with dragoon style barrel.  Now it could be said - wrongly - that instead of being a '51 Navy, it could be a short barreled Griswold & Greir (Gunnison); Caliber, Frame and round barrel is correct; but they didn't make any with a short barrel.  I guess 3 outta 4 attributes is close enough  */)????

Fingers I agree the brass frame and round bbl was Histoically incorrect for a Colt, but them reproduction are meant to be Southern copies of the 1851 Sheriff's as it the Reb. The Sheriff Model in a steel frame is Colt Historically correct as i read where Colt would custom make any special order config you wanted and listed in ads the barrel lengths, stock type, engraving,and finnish you preferred.

And this mouse/cursor thing is still goin' on here ...and no place else on any other forums or sites. Just in this or my message box here. Not in the PMs here just this box ... and that's the last time I'll mention it as it must jus' be my glitch :(

No, SG, I've got the same mouse cursor glitch in the post reply box as you have.

The short barreled brass framed guns aren't correct, and neither are the half round half oct barrels in a .36 Colt revolver.  The half round/half oct barrel on an iron frame was made - at least one of them was - by Rigdon and Ansley, though.

And another thing..   ::)  The brass framed, octagonal barreled Confederate revolver is also a pig in a poke.  There were only 50 sample model Schneider and Glassick revolvers made, and of the three known to exist, one of them is iron framed with half round/Half octagonal barrel.  They - S&G - were apparently only resellers, and not manufacturers.

Hitting the refresh button doesn't help with the glitch?

Nope.  Only way to travel around in the compose window is with the cursor arrows on the keyboard

Well, I am finally going to get my brass framed sheriff's model dragoon barreled .36.  Seems Pietta made them a while back.  There has been one listed on AA for months now with a reserve and a buy now of $235.  I've been putting in a $150 bid each time the listing has expired for quite a while.  Even tried a haggle with the seller - to no avail.  Last week, when the listing was reposted, it was listed with no reserve and no buy now price.  The high bid when I saw it was around $81, so I posted a $125 bid and ended up winning the bid.  He should have taken my haggle offer of $150. 

I will have a complete revolver for less than what it would have cost for just the barrel and loading lever from VTI.  Now I can make my repro of a short barreled Rigdon and Ansley using the barrel and blank cylinder from this revolver with the steel Pietta frame and Sig Series Colt grip frame and grips that I've been saving for this project, and still have a spare complete frame.

Somtimes being patient pays off.
