Slo-mo vid of 1860 Colt firing

A slow motion video of an 1860 Army replica being fired. Pretty interesting.

Isn't it amazing how many people post without reading the thread?

Wow! Never realized how much came out of the back--would have thought more fire would come from the cylinder gap. I did capture a Mississippi rifle with flame coming out of the nipple but didn't think the revolver did it.

yep, i thought there would be more gas escaping the barrel/cylinder gap also, must be a tightly fit gun.
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional,illogical minority,and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous Press which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

Very informative to see how the flames spread across the revolver.

I've never fired a BP firearm, but always wanted to try.

Now, not so sure...I don't own a Nomex suit.
