Is there a historical prototype for these revolvers in .44?
No. There were no brass framed (bronze gunmetal) .44 cal revolvers made by either side. They are an invention of the replica manufacturers.

The only .44 cal revolvers made by Confederate manufacturers were the Tucker & Sherrod - which was a clone of the Colt 2nd Model Dragoon - and the Dance Brothers & Park revolvers - Iron frames with no recoil sheilds. The Dance Brothers revolver was also made in .36

So it was YOU!

MCB,

I think it was you who actually tipped me off to the sale at Cabela's in another thread. BTW, I did what you recommended a few posts ago and got on their emailing list.

Thanks for that tip. I like this pistol too, but I won't be taking a hack saw to it.

Thanks for the info

FM,

Thanks for the info on .44s. This is why I like this forum. There are a lot of people who consistently pay attention to the questions that are asked and then wade in with responses.

One of these days, I will get good enough to actually contribute something.

Wow! I had no idea when I first posted the question about the 1851 Navy this many folks would reply. I thinks it's awsome this many folks are interested in ball and cap pistols. I know that I will be coming back here many times! Thanks for all of the help.

Yup!

To Katfish,

I just started shooting again after a long (twenty some years) hiatis. When I was involved the first time, my situation was that the only source of info was magazines, books, and my own trial and error.

This forum is a continual source of great info because there are a load of very knowledgeable people who monitor the posts and who don't mind giving advice.
