    Just watched Pale Rider and Unforgiven this weekend. In PR they have some nice slow moving closeups of Clint’s character reloading!

    She be looking a tad rusty, but a beauty she still be (don’t know why I’m talking in pirate).

    Thanks for all the previous responses under the Walker thread about this pistol in Pale Rider, sorry I didn’t say thank you earlier, but I had to go away suddenly for a week – but not in a mysterious or sexy way – just crap to sort out.

    Looks like it needs some oil, stat! That pistol is as dry as a popcorn fart.

    What kind of a museum lets their collection RUST!

    (Yes I was Army!)

  • Is that rust?

    Of all of the guns I have owned my Uberti 1858 clone is the most fun to shoot. I really need to buy a .454 ball mold and find a place to shoot near Madison, WI.

    They are fairly cheap, solidly built, cheap to feed, and the huge cloud of blue smoke after fanning the action really pleases a crowd. I recommend everyone try black powder at least once.

  • Greetings From Texas,
    Question, has anyone ever tried that trick of dipping the loaded cylinder in wax? I wonder how that would work.

  • Needs to be cleaned and seasoned with Ed’s Red.

    Presumably on loan to the NRA museum – any conservation work on the object would have to be OK’d with the owner – these pics could be taken prior to that.
