Only Customs , and they are based on the Ruger Old Army .
No production revolvers that I am aware of though ?
Not sure the Market would support it anywayz . Thats probably why there aint any . Most people are into Historically "somewhat" accurate copies anywayz . I'd buy one though :D LOL....
Plus the accuracy of a .451 to .457 with a BP charge of around 900 FPS is pretty accurate , and not too sure the .50 could match it ? But for terminal knockdown power of the .50 would be awsome !
You should start milling one up today for us :D

I saw one that the seller claimed was a .50 but I didn't even look at it because I didn't have the money and I was about 10 years old.

I think it would be cool as hell.

This is Clements version . It is actually a .49 caliber , but hell , close enough , LOL :D ....Obviously the base revolver is the Ruger Old Army

I'll take it. Lol. I wonder if you can use a .50 ball? Don't most BP revolvers shave a bit of the ball when loaded? It would be easier to find .50 balls I believe, if they just shave down to fit.

Actually

Actually they purposely made it to shoot standard .50 Round Ball which measure .490 , and bore is .485 .
Or conicals at .488 ................
There you go , and I think he is still making them to this date actually . Bring your Bank Account :D
