The 36 like old CVA's are just like the colt 1851 navys except the brass frame. The brand new piettas probably don't have as strong as braSS AS THEY DID IN THE 70'S And of course the originals. I recommend 36c brass revolvers over the 44's for the fact they are more historically correct and they use a lighter and safer load. Did the old factories make navy style 44's back then or is that something that came later? If the cylinder grooved pin shifts -then you have an unfafe brass gun. Alway make sure the hammer goes in 3 cocks and loading plunger drops easy in chamber at six oclock when cocked.
