Bob, I believe you may have found the prototype gun that Hitler was trying to use to fight his way out of his underground shelter during the fall of Berlin!!! :WOW:

This is an old thread that I figured could use a bump.

 

This 1860 colt replica was built from pieces and started as a .44 cap and ball.  Now a 45 long colt, with stabilized maple burl grips. Silver crosses on both sides. These were my grandfathers. He was a chaplain in ww2. Silver turtle front sight,  but it's not needed, she's a real pointer out to about 10 to 15 yards.

 

This 1858 Remington replica is the current project. A target model, she's also converted to 45 long colt, but has yet to be gated for rear loading. The "remmys" don't fit my hand like the colt, thus the target sights. Again maple burl grips.

 

Love the old wheel guns

As a side arm while picking huckleberries in Yellowstone Park, I guess I could see it . . .
