The wall thickness of cap and ball revolvers

Hello! Do anyone know what’s the wall thickness of the cylinder of the Ruger Old Army? I read this article https://www.guns.com/news/2019/08/14...ruger-old-army and it seem that the original Remington New Army had much thinner walls. Why? The steel was inferior back then, wasn’t it?

How thick are usually the steel at the cylinders of cap and ball revolvers? What about modern replicas vs. antiques?

What’s the wall thickness of your revolver?
