As far as the complaints are concerned, most are around the fact that it is not
"authentic" but a modern BP gun. The heavy is good, it is the most solid BP revolver around.
My only other comment is that for me the conicals did not work as well. The accuracy is just not as good as the round ball. Never figured out why that is but I am pretty much sticking with round balls. They are also VERY difficult to load.
Enjoy the Ruger. It is my favorite BP and maybe my favorite do all firearm.
