I was on GB and had been bidding on a Armi San Marco black powder pistol that looked like a 1873 single action but with the "thunderer" grip. The fellow selling it had little knowledge of it. I have not been able to find any info. It was a black powder pistol that you had to take the cylinder out to load it. I am not sure how one would load the bullet if it was a tight fit, unless the cylinder would fit one of those rammer set ups. I would post a pic if I had one. Would have liked to have one of those. Any info much appreciated. I'll try to load a pic or the address.

Yeah, I was watching that one with some interest. I would imagine you would load with a press off the gun....me; I was thinking it would be a hell of a candidate for a Kirst or Howell conversion. Hell; you're halfway there. And I suspect the designers figured as much as well. Perfect for the un-traceable CF revolver.
