Cap 'n Ball

Postby Aughnanure » Tue Jun 02, 2015 11:40 pm

Here's a couple of my old cap and ball revolvers along with a Ruger 'Old Army' for comparison



The centre one is a much modified Old Army, that was known as the 'Rugington', half a pound whittled off it.

The other is a Remington, forget which maker, that I had fitted a cap shield to and a crud deflector to the front of the cylinder over the axis pin.



Both gone now. :(

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
