period correct "brass"
Which original manufacturers actually made "brass" frame revolvers?
I've read that it was not brass at all, that it was 'gun-metal'. Was 'gun-metal' shiny when it was new? or did it look similar to what these old guns look like today?
Is the "brass" used in making modern replicas actually brass, and why don't they make them from 'gun-metal' today?
Also, was the Henry rifle made with the same 'gun-metal'?
