I obtained a Pietta 1858 New Army, 5 1/2" barrel. Obtained a .45 LC cal. cylinder with loading gate, dremeled a channel so I could flip that loading gate and load. Accurate, great easy trigger,
and I habe shot hundreds of rounds (my reloads) without a hitch. Gun cost $218 (back then) , legally came in the US Mail, .45 cylinder somewhat expensive. Total cost, could have bought an Italian .45 single action for the same or less. But I love this pistol !
Thx I have a number of ROA handguns SS and Blue. The one in the picture now has had an action job and a new high sight blade. The grips are Sambar Stag it has an R&D .45 Colt cylinder. It also has a fitted custom Perc. cylinder turned from a jet fighter landing gear by Ballistic Products. I am all so having it fit with custom made Perc. nipples. I shoot 260 Grs. .45 Colt bullets over 40/T3 which runs at 970 FPS.
