Nope I'm not so fortunate to have an xrta 1862 Pocket Police to bob the barrel on as is the Avenging Angel modified version of the 1862 Colt Pocket Police. If I am Mistaken and that is a .44 cal 1862 Colt Police not a .36 Cal Pocket Police then I have posted my pic incorrectly... if not it is the same revolver jus' not chopped.

I have read all five referring to period belly guns.
I have a thread over at THR on a build I'm doing with a .36 brasser.

now that's cute, Clem...

why not just remove the barrel, put a nut on the end of the arbor to hold the cylinder on, and make a pepperbox out of it- shoot it bare cylinder.

I got that beat...

carry a loaded/capped cylinder around, and hit the caps with a hammer, pointing it at the target- weld a rod to it, to hold it like a hand cannon

Gawwwwwwd I love those pistola's..Closest I have is a Pietta Hartford series, with a 5 1/2 bbl, .44. If i can find a compentent enough smithy around these parts, I may have my full fledged Army bobbed to one of those. I know Cabellas use to sell them, not sure iffn they do any more, but one way or another....I'm gettin one!...Excellent photo's!!!!!!
