Well well well, I should probably hold my tongue unless I'm absolutely certain.
Look what I found under some new light:
I'm just waiting on some bullet lube (ball lube?
) and I'll be taking it out and shooting along with an Antonio Zoli .58 Navy Model 1861(?).
One last question on a slightly different tone; what's a NIB/never fired Ruger Old Army Single Six in .457 worth? I see they stopped making them a few years ago. It's not a collectors revolver, correct?
