Can't tell much from the pics. A GUESS is that its a brown bess, but it could be anything. Too bad the lock is missing. Start comparing furniture, barrel length, caliber, rifled or smooth-bore,...

I hears stories about the old 158gr lead round nose .38 special police round. Wasn't considered an effective round. It was sometimes called a widow-maker, and was one of the reasons for the...

Update

Loaded up, and shot, a dozen rounds, using Winchester and Wolf primers. No problems.

Looks like it was the primers. The Rem 1 1/2 and Magtech 1 1/2 sp primers will be used in .38 and 9mm loads...

In your situation, 7.62x39. For me in the same situation, 6.5 Grendel. Good range, knock down power for hunting, + there's some good info out there on it for reloading, etc.

Sorry to disagree, but Ruger makes a 9mm/.357 convertible Blackhawk. While not a double-action, and not really for self-defense, they are good revolvers. Mine shoots .357, .38, and 9mm well. The...
