You'd think that with modern CNC equipment it would be a no brainer to at least have precision fitted parts.
Yeah but who would want to pay for it? I'd wager that shooters are rather accustomed to paying very little for their Italian cap `n ball pistols and wouldn't pay a little extra for a little extra attention to detail. Few are willing to spend $500-$600 for a 2nd or 3rd generation Colt Blackpowder gun, at least, as a shooter. If USFA built percussion pistols, how many here would spend $800-$1000 for an 1860? I would, but only if it was a cartridge conversion.

ROAs are much better 'machines', but IMO they're soulless blocks of metal. An 1860 or similar just oozes...well, soul.
Couldn't have said it better myself!!!
