Really?? 22 Flobert was made for single-shot parlor guns, not for revolvers (that's what the OP asked). I can just see the old Tejano pistolero as he draws his single-shot parlor pistol saying "now pardner, you jes step back so's ye won't git hurt none".

As far as Old West, that to me means before the Civil War (pioneers, settlers, Oregon Trail days). After the Civil War, it was the Wild West (Indian wars, gun slingers, cattle drives). Now I'm sure somebody somewhere has it all written down and will prove me wrong, but that's how I think of it.
