    Just picked up a well used and cared for Ruger New Army cap and ball revolver! These things are built super tough. Going to be fun to shoot!

    They are very well built. They also make a centerfire conversation cylinder for them

    Good find. I think I've only seen one (in excellent condition) in the last few years at a pawnshop, and they wanted $700 for it. Pretty stainless revolver.

    A great quality revolver. I have a pietta 58 which is a fun little gun.

    This is the 3rd one I've seen in many years. It was very reasonable.

    They are fun to shoot and they are relatively accurate.

    I picked mine up for $60.00, after the fellow behind the counter of one of the pawn shop I frequently visit, passed on buying it for $75.00.

    The pistol needed a good cleaning to get it back in good working condition.

    The "Old Army" and "New Army" are often confused, but are really easy to distinguish: :E Happy:
