Johnny45,

I have four of the 2nd Generation Colts that I shoot on a regular basis. All of them have the Tresco nipples and it's really rare that I have any issues. I also crimp the caps slightly...

I always use a powder flask with my C&B revolvers. Never heard of anyone having an issue with a revolver, and I've been shooting them for well over 35 years. There are ranges and some black powder...

Sorry for ya... but that's total BS. I've been shooting .32s since the 70s and have always found them to be very accurate. Trashing an entire class or caliber of weapons because you can't hit with...

The value is what someone is willing to pay. How big is the market for a for a .22 mini C&B. It really falls into a novelty area.

Not to discourage, but NAA, who is now making a very similar...

OK - I like .32s

My NAA Guardian has been a real performer. I've owned this gun since 2004 and it has at times been one of my favorites when concealment trumps. At 10 yards and in it will print fist size groups...

Not sure I agree with the "point blank" theory in total, as it does not apply across the board between the Colt and Remington pistols. Both of which were used by the military.

a lot of the issue in the Colts shooting high is the small front sight. I've seen taller ones put on them that corrects the problem, but to me, it takes away from the historical lines. With a...
