Not sure why they call these Buffalo Revolvers , maybe someone could learn me ? I presume they are actually modeled after Colts Buntline Special is all and they dreamt up Buffalo for retail selling . Oooooh Buffalo Revolver , oooohhhh ahhhhh . Phooee I say .
You sure as heck aint gonna shoot Buffalo with one ? Anyhoo , they are fun to shoot , very accurate too with Round Ball or with conversion cylinders with BP Cowboy loads or Modern Remington loads you see in the pics . Off the bench the SS Pietta Remington is amazing actually . The Brass framed specimen is another Pietta I built from a kit from Dixie , but is unfired as of yet
If you ever buy the kit ,
RE-THINK it , its alot of work . Not unless you have tremendous patience and abilty to maintain sharp edges like the originals , not to mention grip fabrication abilities . As you can see from the photos they come very very very rough . Hopefully there are some other Pardners here that enjoy these target grade revolvers and will post up some pictures too and maybe some explanations of thier loads or experiences with them ?
And if someone could enlighten me on the Buffalo Term I would sure appreciate it .
Enjoy the pics !
