Default OT: BP pistols.....

Just stumbled into a Pietta 1860 Army. I'd like to expand the BP pistol/ revolvers for survivors. There are a lot more Colt replicas floating around than Remingtons. Rifles are pretty well covered in Damocles and Starnaman. Title should be started OT.

One of the first widely used revolvers, this weapon was designed before metallic cartridges were in wide use. This type of weapon is known as a “cap and ball” black powder firearm. Cap and ball means the cylinder is first loaded with black powder and a lead bullet is rammed down on the powder with the ramming lever underneath the barrel. On the back of the cylinder a copper percussion cap is placed over a nipple on the back of each chamber. Since this is a single shot weapon, the hammer must be manually cocked back for each shot. When the trigger is pulled, the hammer crushes the percussion cap, firing the fulminate in the cap and igniting the powder charge. The weapon has no safety and is dangerous to carry fully loaded.
