Excellent post BBB. For the past forty years I have read period books on the old west expansion and the Indian wars, less on the Civil War. There is discussions of carrying extra revolvers but not extra cylinders. I have two books that reprint much of the Colt sales records, extra cylinders are very rarely mentioned and then only with cased sets.

While I do have extra cylinders for my Remingtons I do not carry them capped. I cap them after they are in the revolver.
