I thought the military only used the single actions, course the South would use whatever they could get their hands on!

From what I've read, the DA Starr was pretty well hated because of the tendancy to jam up if you tried to cock it SA. I don't care, I'd still love to have one, replica or original!

Oh, I definately want a SA Starr! Just the DA takes some getting used to from what I understand.
