  1. I used a Buckhorn with a Beach front sight on a carbine a few years ago. It was great for fast stages and it flipped to a standard sight for longer range stages. Sold it with the gun and regretted it.
  2. I have two 1861 or 1862 (Pietta sometimes called a fluted cylinder 1861 an 1862) percussion cap revolvers in 36 caliber. 5.5” barrels. Both show handling marks but not a lot of wear. Function is good on both of them. No action jobs and still have the factory nipples. #1 - The non-fluted cylinder gun has been drilled and tapped for a cap post, but the hammer is still stock. Manufacture date is 1994. #2 - The fluted cylinder gun was stored somewhere damp and had some surface rust inside the frame. I think I have removed most of it. Some minor pitting on the finish. Manufacture date 1989. $250 shipped for each, or $475 for the pair.
  3. My 06 Coyote Cap '87 did not allow loading the tube after Lassiters magic. You need to decide between drop two or having 5 or 6 rounds. The obvious answer is to buy two
  4. I have one.  Picked it up last year and it is just too different from my Piettas.  Wish I'd seen the one you sold last week in time. 

    Don't know the history, got it from Daniel Dodge.  Someone put a spacer in it and thinned down the mainspring for some reason, so it wouldn't fire any caps.  I trimmed a SAA spring to fit and it seems to work fine now.

    Let me know if you need other pictures.

    $295 USPS Flat Rate insured.  I think you can still ship them USPS, if not let me know how we have to do it now.

      Thanks for the response, but yours is not the one I am looking  for.

      The one I want is built on the smaller .31 frame, with a step in the cylinder to accommodate a 36 caliber ball. 

      Thank you though.



  5. Original 1889 vintage, cut down barrel, bore too big to cut threads for a choke. The favorite local shotgun targets were 2" and 3" steel pipes that you had to knock over. 60 grains wouldn't do it. Ended up with 83 grains black with a modified shot cup to keep it together. Worked great and everybody on the posse felt the boom!
  6. I once loaded up a batch of cartridges for my standard broomhandle with Triple 7. It cycled well enough that I used it in an early Wild Bunch match.
  7. I did lose a screw from an original about 12 years ago. It was between stages, and I spent the entire lunch break covering the ground with a borrowed 5 lb magnet (thanks Fiddletown). Finally found it in time to shoot the afternoon stages. Original screws were custom fit, off the shelf ones need to be fitted. The new guns have standard screws (I know this because I'm a slow learner).
  8. I always thought he was the good guy in Posse. Or maybe the least bad guy.
  9. I used a full buckhorn with a Beaches' front sight on a carbine for a while. The double ring was real fast for target acquisition and I never missed with it. Should have kept them when I sold the gun:(
  10. They have been showing episodes on Sundays, but it looks like they are shifting to Saturdays come the new year. I get the channel on Dish. They are also showing The Restless Gun with John Payne.
