I will try to remember to pick up batteries for my camera today and get some pictures up tonight.

The gun appears to be very well made with a tight action, lockup and feel. The fit of the grips to the frame is not very good but otherwise the metal parts fit together very well.

I have a St. Louis Hawkins 50 cal I was playing with a lot 10-12 years ago and deer hunting with so I know at least a little about black powder shooting. I am thinking this cap and ball revolver is more to do than a muzzle loader rifle but thats where the fun is.

Would this gun being a smooth bore be correct? There are Roman Numerals XXV in the right side frame. If this is a date code what year would that mean? I doute the gun was made in 1925, I am thinking more 1950's or 1960's.

Thanks!
James
