Replica Arms "1851" .44

I ran across this one in an ad in the paper and figured that I'd take a chance - it was locked up tighter than a drum and just filthy, but for 20 bucks, I thought that I'd take a chance. It also came with an old flap holster.

I got it home, took it apart, saw where the other end of the bolt had gotten stuck under the little piece that sticks out of the hammer and put it all back together. Now it works just peachy.

Check out that barrel, though. It's a 1974 Replica Arms "Confederate" .44, but the barrel is round. The brass 1851 .44 is already a fiction, but it looks like Pietta got confused with the dragoons!
Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop - Gus McCrae
