While these are very nice (I own several Ruger revolvers myself), they are not pistols. They are revolvers and revolvers are not pistols. A 'pistol' is a handgun where the cartridge, or bullet, is fired from the barrel, which revolvers do not do. All semi auto handguns are pistols since the round is chanbered in the barrel from where it is shot. When handguns first came out, they were all loaded via the barrel, just as muskets were, and this is when the term 'pistol' started. I realize that people often use the term 'pistol' interchangeably with the term 'handguns', but this is technically not correct for they are different. All revolvers are handguns, and all pistols are also handguns, but revolvers are not pistols.^^^ Very nice pistols. I’ll keep looking around but will most likely order a new brass frame from RW. The more I look at the brass frames on the blued revolvers the more I want one! To me they just look great!
Maybe this will help ….When you say OM is this XR3 or XR3RED? I need an XR3 frame for an old model .45.
Another Old Army with brass frame.
I've been wanting to take it out, along with some other black powder firearms but I can't find any No. 10 or 11 caps. If anyone knows where I can get some, please let me know. I really want to introduce my wife to black powder shooting.
