Thanks Captain.
Uberti markets this one as a Leech & Rigdon.
Wish it had L&R marking on it.

Excellent choice. Now you need a Griswold & Gunnison and maybe even a Schneider & Glassick. There weren't very many S&G's made but there were still a few floating around.

You're right I am. Nix the Spiller & Burr.

Too tiny for my mitts. Handled my buddy's and the TG was mashed up against my knuckles.

Got to shoot the Leech and Rigdon today.
It shot very well.
Had a couple of New gun minor issues.....a couple of cap jams ( ordered a set of slix shot nipples) like I have on my Navy. The beveled end of the ram rod was sticky ( my fault - didn't clean good enough) and one cap that would not go off ( not the gun's fault ).
Other than that.....all good.

That's three. The very beginning of your collection, I surmise. Most of us here (myself included) thought we were done at three...LOL! Joke's on us! A year from now I reckon you'll be wistfully looking back to the time you only had three... *6'

Certainly have the desire for more.....but..... I would have to sell other firearms to get more.
So, that will help hold down the numbers for me.
