Glad to see some of you folks shooting the older BP pistols.
The newer styles are an eye opener to me. Amazing diversity, zimmerstutzen ty for posting!

I have a couple, one I don't shoot that indexes well with good lock up. Might see what the gunsmith has to say.
Colt 1851 Navy, .36cal manuf, in 1861. 187351
Samuel Colt was still alive, I like to think he might have pulled this one off the line for a minute or two. You never know....

The other I have shot infrequently with each barrel. The 4" is my favorite.
Pietta 1861 Navy .36cal. 187352 Sort of gives me the feel of shooting the 1851 without the history.

Purchased from Smokin Gun right here at THR. Still feel lucky to have the set.

Pete: sort of. The upper one is a Yazel muzzleloader, The bottom is indeed a TOZ 22 RF Olympic match pistol. (I posted it by mistake, but it does show the similar stock lines) Paul Piburn's wife has a pistol built on a Martini action similar to the TOZ action, but a muzzleloader. It is a beaut!

She ain't exactly "high end," but I love her just the same: my Pietta "sheriffs model" .36 calibre. Got 'er on the cheap, second hand, so I used it to hone my primitive machining skills, truing up the face of the cylinder, reducing the mainspring pressure, putting the hammer, hammer roller and spring on roller bearings, trigger job, et cetera, et cetera. I even made imitation "slick shot" nipples so the caps stay on, and cut a purchase on the cylinder for a concealed o-ring. The action is slicker'n owl poop, and I can fan six shots without a jam or malfunction of any kind. I'm thinkin' Wild Bill would be proud.

My Uberti New Model Remington .44 has been very good to me. These are just the gold, there's a bunch of silver & bronze, too. It's nothing special, not a "shooter's model" or whatever, but the trigger pull is sweet, and it's very accurate. It likes 22g of 3f under a wonder wad and .454 ball, without fillers.

I took this shot a few years back. A nice group of black powder Colts. The Patterson (no visible trigger in the center) is a Italian made reproduction but the rest are 1970s vintage Colt made revolvers, save for the long gun at the bottom. That is an honest to God Colt 1861 special contract musket made in 1862, in .58 caliber.

Among the large revolvers you see a Colt Walker just above the musket, the blue background case is a third model Dragoon, both in .44 caliber. There are a couple of smaller cased 1851 Colt Navy models in .36 caliber at the top. The double case set are a fluted and non fluted cylinder Colt 1860 Army models in .44 caliber. The real small revolvers on either side of the Patterson are a 1862 Pocket Navy and Pocket Police. There is also a 1861 Colt Navy and 1851 Navy to the left towards the bottom above the musket and the pair on the other side another Third Model Dragoon and a non fluted 1860 Army.

Also picked up an original Springfield Armory 1840 musket made in 1841 about three years ago.

Oops, forgot about this. Here is something interesting I have had for a number of years. I got it from an old friend who is now deceased. He had built this based on something he saw in a museum. It's called a pistol chair and is designed to carry everything you need for your old muzzle loading pistol. So what we have here is the chair which is slotted to hold the patch cutting knife (he made this by hand from a old truck spring) pick, bullet starter, powder measure,flask, horn funnel, patch box and cap box. A little hook on the back holds the bag with your lead balls. We also have a spoon for pouring your lead into the bullet mold.

The pistol itself is a Lymans Plains Pistol in .50 caliber.

The first big pistol is a .50caliber a friend of mine build, the barrel is a 1:48 off-cut from a Green Mountain barrel from a rifle which he build a few years ago. It is shooting roundballs and light conicals very comfortable.

The second little pistol(mousegun) is a pistol which I build myself with the help of the same friend. He draw it in CAD and we had the parts lazer-cut, I then filed it to specs and build it with a .22cal barrel off-cut. It is shooting 30gr conicals. A 30-06 casing for scale.

So it fires .22 lead? thats pretty cool

Will it fire with the toy caps?

@BowerR64

It uses .22 lead, same bullets as the North American Arms revolwers works perfect. I use a .22case full of blackpowder and the plastic cap ignites it perfectly. It packs a punch for a small pistol!

A pair of 1860's I got from a gun show about a year ago along with the crusty but serviceable rig that came with them. One is a .36 and the other a .44. The .46 along with a brass frame .36 I've also got are sold and I've settled on .44's.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y252/BCRider/Gun%20pictures/IMG_1496.jpg (http://s7.photobucket.com/user/BCRider/media/Gun%20pictures/IMG_1496.jpg.html)

And my consecutive serial Uberti New Army set in .44 of course. Sitting between them is "Jr", an NAA "The Earl". From the family resemblance you can easily see why I HAD to get the NAA. Oddly enough this particular one with its 4.2 inch barrel made just for Canada shoots well and it's a total giggle to use it for 5'ish inch groups at 25 yards or plink at closer in stuff.

August 26, 2013, 03:46 PM
Well, I figured I'd post my latest build here. My granddaddy passed away a few years back, and I inherited some of his hand tools. Among those were some files, drill bits and a few other tools that I used to create this pistol.

The gun is a .22 caliber single shot muzzle loader. I made everything but the mainspring, barrel, escutcheons, and nipple. This took a lot of hours and work, but it was worth it and is priceless.

My granddaddy was a United States Marine, and gunny. I'll be going into the Marines pretty soon here, part of the reason is to honor him.

That little gun has some surprising punch to it. I'm shooting 7 grains of Pyrodex over a North American Arms 30 grain lead bullet.

Does anyone have detailed information on the original, FIRST GENERATION. colt 1861 navy.

I have one that just gives one the feeling that it is not as represented. I have compared this one to several other 1861's but this one is an early 7xx serial number. I also have compared it using a comparative microscope with several second and third generation units and all are quite different. Dispelling the myth that parts were interchangable

September 9, 2013, 03:48 PM
Buzzy,

I wish I could give you some detailed information about your 1861 Navy. Your best bet would be to contact the Colt Collectors Association and ask there. I concentrate on 2nd Gens, and there is no comparable information.
To my knowledge, there is no book geared towards the 1861 Navy like there is for the 1851 Navy or other Colt's revolvers. Unfortunately, because of low production numbers & the period they were made, the 1861 Navy has been relegated to a footnote in Colt's manufacturing history. I wish there was more information available. The 1861 is one of my favorite revolvers.

Neither is a Remington at all. They are the Spiller & Burr repro and an original Whitney.......Beals was working for Whitney after he left Remington BTW and the Confederates copied the Whitney design in brass as the S&B.

Both are pockets (sorry for the crappy pics)

The navy pockets are Cimarron/Ubertis 6.5 barrel 1865 pockets of navy caliber (36). The burl walnut grips were done by Walt Marston and they are in a Bill's Cases London style case

The police pockets are Cimarron/Ubertis with the unique "Sam Cotl Ney Work" markings they did a few with, 5.5" barrels, a Bill's Cases Hartford style case, and imitation ivory grips by Walt Marston using a interesting swirled reconstituted ivory material from RT Research that has goldenish swirls all through it and looks like aged ivory
