Can't help with a flinter or cap lock single shoot. BUT, I do have a couple of HORSE pistols.

Granddaddy Walker.


And the offspring, Dragoons...

fluted 3rd model dragoon.


Tucker & Sherrard Texas Dragoon.


Unusual 3rd model Dragoon with shoulder stock.


These big Colts are my favorite shooters.

Black powder revolvers don't have a sharp recoil like a magnum can have. More like a push, a good hard push against your hand. Most have the plow handle grip style so the rock back in your grip as they raise up. I find them pleasant to shoot all day. Can't say that for some of my .357's.

Defarbed means typically removing all manufacture marks and other marks, such as proof marks, "made n Italy" "Black Powder Only" It makes the replica cap and ball revolvers look better. You can go as far as stamping original style marking. Some don't like it, saying it is counterfeiting. It's only counterfeiting if you say it's an original IMHO.

This is a defarbed Paterson.





Obviously a fake because of the incorrect barrel marking, but it does fool people that are not knowledgeable about the Paterson.
