Very nice piece.
I'm not sure I know exactly what I'm looking at.
Is it an original or a reproduction? I'm still learning to recognize them.
Is the recoil shield opening large enough to load cartridges or will you be opening it up some more?
I'm working on two Colt Dragoons (you've already helped me with your posts, thanks again) and I'm still agonizing over whether or not to open up the shield or remove the cylinder to load cartridges or not. I'm leaning on the side of opening them up. I'll be shooting CAS with them.
Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.
