The OFFICIAL Sniper's Hide Black Powder / Single Action Revolver Thread.
We at the Hide already cover a huge variety of firearms and shooting styles. This particular category hasn't gotten much attention so I decided to start a discussion section for our black powder shooters and hunters.
From flintlock Kentucky long rifles and Jaegers of the Revolutionary War period to modern in-line and 209-ignition magnum hunting rifles. From the first successful Colt revolving pistol built in 1836 to the tested, timeless, and ageless symbol of rugged dependability: the Model 1873 Single Action Army, and everything in between, this is the thread to talk about them and post photos and videos, as well as tell stories of Old West lore, the Civil War and the Indian Wars. Major world conflicts fought with these weapons are also discussed here.
Discuss your favorite hunting and target loads, powders, primers, projectiles, long range accuracy tests, ballistic performance, favorite cleaning methods, and gunsmithing issues.
HUNTERS: There are PLENTY of us who have harvested game and continues to harvest game with black powder revolvers and rifles. Share stories and pictures here.
In this thread, COLT'S and REMINGTON'S rule. ( And of course, every other type of handgun which had played an instrumental role in the taming of the western frontier and paved the way for all of the modern firearms technology that we have today. )
I MYSELF own and sometimes carry a Remington Model 1858, in both percussion and cartridge conversion mode. And like one of the most famous Remington revolver shooters in history: William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, mine has never failed me either.
