Ok here's my three from top to bottom 1860 Colt ARMY, 1847 Colt Walker, and the 1858 Remington ARMY. All in .44 caliber and with conversion cylinders.

Ive had 3 of these, 2 Uberti steel (one stainless, the other plain steel) and a brass-framed, NOT Uberti. These are a mess to shoot and get maybe 2 cylinders fired and the things need to be cleaned or the works gum up and won't rotate the cylinder. They are accurate enuff, no issue there.
My serious wish is that SOMEONE will invent a BP that is cleaner burning or invent a BP pistol that can use, say, Unique or Blue Dot or something.. YMMV

Triple Se7en is about as clean as you're gonna get but due to the lack of sulfur it's pretty good stuff. Sulfur is the culprit of most of the fouling & its only benefits are to drop ignition temperature & to smell like sh!t.

I get 4 -6 cylinders fired before they start to drag. If you want cleaner burning and no hassle then bp is not for you. Get a modern gun.
