Long rider, the rogers and spencer I have is made by euroarms and shoots about the same size groups as my remmy does. The grip fits me better on the R & S, I reckon I like them both about the same.

Ok, it seems like we've done this hundreds of times but I'll add a few.

A couple of my navies...



The whole gang.



The three navies together.



Horse pistols.



Colt 2nd gen 1860 and a Pietta I refinished (or removed the finish from if you want to be technical)



The Walker

Old and new...



Some long arms too! These were built by my Dad. They are mine now and highly prized.



My Civil War collection, love all of these. (top to bottom, Armi Sport Model 1842 Springfield .69 smoothbore, Pedersoli Model 1861 Springfield .58, Armi Sport Model 1862 Richmond Rifle .58 and Armi Sport Model 1858 Enfield Rifle .58)



And just had to show off the loooong saber bayonet for my 1858 Enfield Rifle.

What gave me away??



My Dad used to always tell me that those new fangled fancy cartridge guns were just a passing fad and would never catch on. I think I believed him!

Here is the 2nd Generation Colt 1860 Army with the fluted cylinder on. I shoot with the rebated cylinder to keep the fluted pristine. Looks nice though!

Wow Rusty.it!

That's excellent!! Is it functional??

long rider,

Yes, the fourth screw is for a shoulder stock and no, unfortunately I don't have one. They are pretty expensive to come by.

At the moment it doesn't work, it is without touch hole in the breech!
Drilling it can put us in a jail with our law
It's only for decoration, but the barrel is good carbon steel with solid breech plug wery well welded in place!
Except the wheel all the part come from scraps
The carriage isn't correct it's a mix of mountain howitzer and prairie carriage for the best looking!

I was looking for another pic and came across this one. I no longer have these, I sold them to help finance my CAS gear.
Top is a .31 Bacon pocket pistol. Serial number 606 out of approx. 3000.
Bottom is an Allen & Wheelock .22 lipfire. Both made in 1858.

HH, before I read what you wrote I looked at the top pistol & thought, that is a wierd cross breed of a Remington grip & a Colt frame but thought "wait a minute BACON dummy.

Very nice

Allen&Wheellock

Hi Hawg:
Your picture of the .22 short seven shot Allen & Wheellock revolver is the only other one, that I have seen, than the one that I have. and I have been going to gun shows in Ohio, and Florida since 1950. I traded the Cheif of police in the small town that I live in , in Ohio, a switch blade knife for the one that I have. That was in 1950. I used mine to train my two sons at ages three & four, by letting them shoot it, the difference between their cap guns and a real gun. I was told by a so called expert gun collector years ago, that the little revolver was an Ethan Allen. I sure would like to find out more about the history of this little gun.
Thanks for sharing your photos.
Chubbo

Mine was an Allen & Wheelock. A direct copyright infringement of the Rollin White patent held by S&W. After the lawsuit all the guns not yet sold had to be marked made for S&W by Allen & Wheelock. Mine didn't have it. The cylinder scene was still intact which most I've seen no longer had. I do hope you weren't shooting .22 shorts in it. I saw a similar one blown into three pieces from one .22 short. Ethan Allen made a similar gun as did some others.
