And just for spite, kudos to C3shooter!

The fact surprised me as I too had never heard of Merwin & Hulbert until my Blue Press showed up with an ad for the "new" 1878 Pocket Army SA.

Merwin Hulbert & Co. is now a division of Sharps Rifle Companies, "We Make Big Things Fall Down Since 1848".

This new offering can only be expected to be successful if their target is re-enactors and collectors in a boutique market. If this is their plan (with a base price of $1,250) I wish them luck.

I think an improvement to their web site is in order to match the touted quality of the product.

Merwin Hulbert & Company

The only art I could find appears to be renderings.

Nice job guys!

Now for round two.

An experienced forensics investigator can identify a spent bullet as being shot from a revolver because of the "skid marks".

What are skid marks?

Must be where the bullet skids slightly on the rifling as it engages it coming through the forcing cone. After jumping the gap from the cylinder.

Would that be from where the bullet enters the forcing cone?

Great answers and I'm giving the win to both freefall and CA357.

But I was looking for a tad more technical explanation so I will keep this question open for more comment.

Well Rossi firearms was founded in 1889 which is the 19th century but............the .357 mag developed by Elmer Keith didn't show up until 1934.

I'll give you runner-up for citing Rossi as a 19th century revolver manufacture but a 1800's magnum??

Remember one aw-sh!t removes 100 atta-boys!
