When a 45 is JUST NOT BIG ENOUGH!

Thanks

 

I like Ian's videos almost as much as yours.

 

I looked it up, and that pistol went for $25,200.00

I pine for a revolver in 56-50 Spencer

The Navy Rolling Block pistol M1867 fires a .50 caliber central fire cartridge that is essentially a shortened .50-70.  The Army M1871 is similar.  IMHO, the Navy is a better choice as it has a smooth-backed grip, whereas the Army model has a sharp hump on the backstrap.  I have fired both, and the Navy one is far more comfortable to shoot!  Seems to me someone was making revolvers in .45-70 at one time.  Sorry, Pard, if a .44 Mangle-em won't do the job, give me a rifle! ;)
