    The gas jetting debris out of the cylinder into one's arms has been an issue for 150 years. The Sharpshooters mutinied during the US Civil War having been issued Colt Revolving Muskets.

    Cool. POS.

    I saw someone shooting one at the range a couple weeks ago. Didn't seem very accurate. Maybe he just sucked though.

    I don't personally know anyone who owns one but it its definitely on my list for the collection. Just looks like fun.... haha sorry I am not more help...but at the price point (especially synthetic model)....I am not sure you can go wrong.

    They look cool but I've not shot one or seen one shot to decide weather or not they are worth the trouble.

    Yes, I fired a friends while wearing a short sleeve shirt, my arm was bleeding after five .410 PDX rounds and five .45LC rounds. I had a hard time with the short LOP, the gun may be accurate but not for me.

    Some time back, I saw on a gun forum where a gunsmith can rig a blast shield to deflect the burning gasses on a revolver rifle. On an original Colt rifle, something like that would certainly influence the value.

    In the John Wayne classic film "El Dorado," Arthur Hunnicutt played the role of "Bull" an old Indian Fighter, who used a Colt Model 1855 Carbine (revolver). It didn't appear to be altered, but they did use blanks in the movie, and it looks like "Bull" was holding his support arm at an odd angle which may have been to avoid the escaping gasses.
