I love my 4⅝, but I would like to try a 9½ inch to see how it performs.
I also have two Heritage Rough Rider guns and a NM Single Six that would serve well, too. My Smith and Wesson 63-3 is too nice (and expensive!) a gun for swamp duty.
Of course, my NAA .22LR 1.125" would be along, too, just because it pretty much always is.
I have the 9.5 and want the 4.625. The 9.5 is a cool hand rifle. If you have the eyes to make use of the long sighting plane, it's a great shooter. The muzzle heaviness made me choose a larger non-cowboy grip, though.
Furs are generally sold to a local dealer. Some want the whole carcass and some want em skinned. American demand for furs is almost non-existent. Beaver though, is another story. Beaver pelts are used in making cowboy hats and their castor glands are nearly worth their weight in gold. But beaver trapping is dangerous: body grip traps can take fingers off, and are usually hidden half under water. Conibear traps are not to be taken lightly.
Any gun should be fine, accuracy wise, for trapped critters. Anything but skunk at least
Doesn't look as cool but it's replacing my others for field use
At times he could drop different loads into the cylinder too. I can’t recall the make and model, but he loved a good 22lr and 357.
