Any 1961 22 short COLT CENTENNIAL EDITION 1861 style guns Loading photos

Do any of you guys have some photos or You tubes of the Loading of the 1961 COLT CENTENNIAL EDITION guns. These look like 1861 army revolvers, But fire single shot 22 shorts.

Have been always interested in how these guns operated.

The cylinder on the single-shot .22 Short Colt Civil War Centennial guns doesn't revolve - the cylinder must be removed as normally by pulling the cylinder pin, the chamber loaded, and the cylinder re-installed/seated.

They don't even have a cylinder stop screw because there is no cylinder stop because the cylinder doesn't need to be stopped because it doesn't rotate. Nice looking guns in a display case, but not in any way a serious firearm, and I suspect 99% were never fired.

I almost bought one one time, but put a bit more to the price and bought a Whitney instead. I never liked the Whitney, either, but kept it. I think I did better with the Whitney instead of buying the Colt "collectors item".
