That's the first gun that I remember staring at longingly in the store's gun case while a drooling high schooler. It was love at first sight. Had to have one. I went back and the shiny brass one was sold but I got the Replica Arms 1861 Navy since it used less lead and powder (36 rather than 44 cal) which at that time in my life was in short supply. I use that gun for trapping, varminting (ground squirrels), and as a house gun for years. Still have it and it is still as tight as the day I brought it home. It's probably had 2000 rounds through it.But I still have fond memories of the most beautiful blonde gun I ever saw up to that time.
With over 15 perCUSSIN' revolvers, I've been called the Imelda Marcos of cap & ball.
