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.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
