Couldn't see much of it Barf-Barf-Barf, after I cleaned my screen with Windex I can now see the thing. Yes it's a nice pistol but that thing growing on top is hideous.

Won't last long after the powder fouling coats it and corriosion sets in.

I'm an IT guy myself, but I gotta say some folks are just too hung up on trying to take something that runs on batteries and stick it to anything they pick up.

The injustice !!!

Yes, this one makes me shake my head. I'm always turned off when I see an older sidelock that has been drilled and tapped for a scope mount but that is where we were, before in-lines. I had a very early TC Hawken model come back to me and the guy had actually mounted a lazer on it. what a shame. .....

Be Safe !!!

I am in a precarious position between bubba and purist. I am all for doing what you want with your own property and if you like it then I have little right to make insulting remarks about the way you spend your money...


...however, I also believe that form and function should go together, even if that pistol were a reproduction(and I'm not expert enough to tell the difference) the holo sight just doesn't match the rest of the gun.

Momma always told me if I couldn't say anything positive, don't say anything.

I think this is one of the times she was talking about.... so I'll just say this...

After a couple of quick shots, there's gonna' be so much smoke, that fancy scope will be useless.

That's, uh, different.... And I thought AR's with all the crap (multiple lights, lasers etc) hanging off of them were silly. But this one beats all for being tactiUNcool.

What was it made you sick....?

Was it the 1858 with a brass frame?

Was it the twelve inch barrel?

How about the target sight on the muzzle?

Was it the optics?

A red dot on a 58 (or any BP reproduction) makes me heave Doc....can't figure why, it just does. While I'm not a fan of brass framed colts (the looks) I do like the '58 "buffalo gun".

Me likey the long barrel...been toying with the idea of getting a buntline for years now.

When you get too old to see the front sight and target, you get innovative.

Yea , , , and people said the same thing about the Edsel too . . . oh, wait a minute . . . . that didn't go over too well either.

Personally, I think that ugly duckling would look a lot better with a big old laser sight on it . . . yea, that's the ticket . . . a big old laser sight!

Just curious . . OP . . where did you run across this thing?
