Seeking Revolver Input...

I am thinking I need a Remington style black powder revolver, but have no experience with them. Any suggestions?

Years ago I had a Ruger Old Army...fun gun to shoot. Only BP revolver I ever owned, no complaints...but I do regret selling it.

never owned or shot a BP pistol ,but try your local muzzleloader gun shop, maybe they can point you in the right direction

If you are into hunting with a muzzleloader , I would get a flintlock pistol, that way you could carry it during the flintlock season.

I have a couple black powder revolvers and they are really fun and cheap to shoot. The biggest challenge I've found is to find one with good adjustable sights. Most have a notch on the hammer which works unless you're a serious target shooter

Be sure to get an extra cylinder....changing out the cylinder with a preloaded one makes you look just like old Clint. Really ups the cool factor!
