It is a Euroarms Sheriff .36 caliber. Obviously an 1851 navy with shorter barrel.

Can anyone tell me about it, proper load?

Going to pick it up on monday, pretty excited.

20 gr fffg in your choice of real BP, lubed wad & .375 roundball, with #10 Remington cap to set it off.

Good price. XX date code makes it a 1964 date of manufacture. While well used, it appears to be in excellent shape. Congrats!!!

Nice looking firearm. I've purchased thru Simpsons-- as an Illinois
operation having to pick the blackpowder revolver up thru an FFL
transfer is a bummer (+$$'s). Good luck with your new revolver.

ps-- Wooooooops, just noticed you are going to pick it up. Well, the
BP I'm looking at with them I can't pick up. Therefore the ^^^.

it's a blackpowder ball and cap. shouldnt need an FFL transfer, should it?

or am I completely mistaken?:confused:

btw rjwolfe, nice catch!

I've looked at some of their BP stuff, but I won't order from them due to the fact that they ship ALL firearms including BP to FFL dealers thus increasing the cost. That and they charge 35.00 MINIMUM for pistol shipping and 20.00 for long guns, then you add the FFL transfer fee. :rolleyes:

Luckily I am in the area and can go pick it up. At that price I figured it was a great way to get into BP revolvers.

That's the way that most all Illinois gun dealers transfer all black powder guns being sold out of state i.e. - FFL to FFL only.
Cabela's requires an FOID card and State ID from any IL resident ordering a black powder gun or pellet gun (any caliber) having a muzzle velocity over 700 fps..
