Going to my first antique gun show this weekend where most guns will be pre-1899, so there will likely be quite a few black powder muzzleloaders and cartridge guns. I'm keeping my eye out for British and French rifles like the Snyder and Chassepot as well as American rifles like the Burnside carbine. I'm highly interested in single shot black powder metallic cartridge rifles from the mid to late 1800s, so are there any sleepers out there I should keep an eye out for? Not interested in Martini-Henry's, loading that ammo is way too much work to be enjoyable. Not just focused on black powder cartridge rifles tho, if I spot a French Gras in 8mm Lebel or a Lebel rifle, I may buy one. Does anybody know if these rifles would be able to shoot factory 8mm Lebel ammo? PPU makes 8mm Lebel for a fair price. No real interest in pre-1899 handguns, most are either too expensive or in bad shape. About the only two that I have any passive interest in are the M1892 Army revolver in .38 Colt (cuz they can be found cheap) and the Remington New Model Police, which is a 5 shot .36 caliber revolver. I'd rather have the Remington Police in a repro from Pietta or Uberti, but neither company seem interested in doing that, which is odd given they make .31 caliber revolvers few have interest in due to the low power.
