    What I like is that those guns were made as cap and ball ones, were in good numbers converted and, later on, were built as "conversion" models.
    So, in the end, you have all possibilities.
    Uberti makes them with the possibility of buying two cylinders: one for cap and ball and one for cartridge.
    I find that nice enough to start thinking about one of those wheel guns.
    Plus, that revolver is really good looking to me.

    I must say, that was what drew me to take possession of the early handguns in the first place. I liked the look and even the feel in hand. It was when I was shooting the mood was broken. Guess I was too spoiled with swing out cylinders and magazines...

    You’re spoiled, that is certainly true
    In my downshifting strategy, a bit of soil in the barrel might be the right thing.
    Few rounds, time between shooting and reloading, smoke, dirty fingers...
    I’m starting to fall for that gun...
