Discussion in 'Blackpowder' started by RWMC, Jul 20, 2014.
You can find Euroarms models for sale on gunbroker or on cowboy action shooting classifieds from time to time. I got one off the SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) classifieds a couple of years ago.
Feinverkbau makes/made one at a price which wouldn't be realistic here.
Had a, what I think was a fair bid, on the one currently listed on Gunbroker. Out bid so will be interesting to see what some one will pay for one. Listing still has six days to go.
Betya 400 people went and Googled Rogers & Spencer as soon as the discussion started and ten of them decided they needed one.
It's the reason I never discussed Centaure's until I had a dozen of them...
Serious question, as I've never even seen one.
equally. I do think highly of the R&S, however, enough so that I consider it the nearest cap and ball design to the ROA, and thus competition. To be specific, significantly better than the Remington New Army in any of its incarnations. In my opinion.
Just to be clear, for those who haven't seen my thoughts on this subject, the ROA has no peer - it is the best cap and ball revolver, period. In my opinion.
Certainly the Ruger is stronger but the R&S is more than strong enough. For me, the R&S handles better, as it's a little lighter. The Ruger has better sights.
The Ruger is an interesting combination of features:
1. Modern Ruger lockwork.
2. The loading lever is derived from the R&S.
3. The cylinder is derived from the 1858 Remington.
