A long, loong, looong, loooong time.

I have a relic 1849 Colt revolver that still had 5 loaded chambers when it was plowed up in a nearby field around 1941 after having been lost probably in the 1860's sometime.

About a decade or so ago, I had it out and one of the balls fell out of a chamber, along with a bit of rust contaminated powder. I scraped the residue into a primed .25 acp case, seated a bullet, put it in my trusty Raven, pulled the trigger, and BANG it went.
Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets replaced...
