Snub Nose now available in .36 Cal...
« on: February 15, 2015, 02:14:32 PM »

Some here commented that the .44 Cal. was pathetic with such a short barrel, I disagree. Certainly not a long range piece but, Quite adequate

at shorter ranges.

I guess the same people would consider the .36 Cal. just a short hammer.

I had a Pietta made .44 caliber too and it was on of my favorite BP pistols to shoot. Looking to get another one, But I'd still like to stick with the regular grip.

Dear Friends,
            I am not really sure how often Pistols or rifles were altered, "Back in the Day," by individuals whose occupations took them, "Into Harms Way?"  I consider it quite likely that since men have always been inventive, and have always wanted to, "Build a Better Mousetrap," that a great many Colt and Remington revolvers had Hammer spurs lowered, Grip shapes filed or ground down, and barrel's shortened or lengthened!  I consider that "Snubbie," black powder revolvers are an answer to a problem that does not exist.  No arm, of any period, does better with a reasonably long barrel than a Percussion Revolver!  By their very nature, Black Powder guns do better with longer barrels.  It gives the powder charge time to get it'd Dander up, and thus send the ball out to, and INTO, the Person or Crittur, you are endeavoring to discourage from their, "Anti Social," behaviour.  Now as I have often admitted in the past on these pages, I am a LITTLE GUY!  I stand now about 5'-7"'s, and I weigh in my underwear on the bathroom scales, 155 to 157 Lbs. Yet with only a lightweight Safari Vest, I have NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER, in hiding a Standard Sheriff's Model!  So in a Fight Situation, I would have the full sized grip, and a five and a halfinch Barrel, which combines to give me a sight length of seven and one half inch distance 'twixt front and rear sights! This MUST give one an advantage in the Accuracy Dept!
            To those of you who have made your own Snubbies, I have to admit that the courage needed to cut into and partially destroy a really sound revolver, and then butcher it's remains, takes more courage, and most certainly more skill than I possess!  I just don't have that level of skills with File & Feeler Gauge!  So I am not knocking any of you on the basis of your altering the gun.  I do put it in the same level as what 4X4 Enthusiasts, do to perfectly good Jeeps and other Off Road vehicles!!
            As many of you know, to me, a gun is a WEAPON!  So except when it is being cleaned after firing, it should be in such a condition where it can, if the need should arise, be put to the purpose that it was originally designed for!  Kill an enemy!  Now I daresay that should Hag Hilary read these words, she would throw up her hands in Horror.  (Which would fill my heart with great JOY!!!!!)   I consider that woman pretty low on the scale of worthwhile People!
            So I have to say that, Like our friend Delbert, a black Powder Snubbie is NOT my cup of tea!

Never make the mistake of thinking I will not shoot..........
Because it may be your very last mistake!

realizing that the logic between teats on a boar and a snubbie make a linear amount of logic. I want one.

Nay, I want based off a Walker.

Fireball. Boom... smoke... belly gun.... it just sounds sexy.

Do you need a hooker in your life? not necessarily.

Are lap dances fun? Well, i suppose so.

So, yes, I crave the lap dancing hooker of the BP shooting world... lol

Hey, plenty good across the room, down the bar or just over a card table.
That one in the photo is a purty little hoe, no doubt whatever.

Neat stuff!!  I'm a gonna have me one some day! Likely with full size grips tho'.

I wonder, is it modern travel and medical knowledge that have made these [somewhat] obsolete? The small diameter ball did a great job combined with a bumpy ride to the  Dr.s house back when medical practices of probing and infection would be as likely to kill you as the squishy mark in your belly.

S&W No 1's sold like hotcakes during Mr Lincoln's war, and those were what? .22 short ?  I'd say they were effective. Either way they are a neat  piece of history.

I was hesitant about the grips as well, But after handling one of these I found the Bird's Head grips to be the perfect compliment for this snub nose revolver.

I have the 1851 Yank model:


Initially, I found the fluted cylinder attractive but, Later purchased the Yank with the octagon barrel and brass bead front sight which I favor more.

They ave very effective at the intended ranges they were made for, Both accuracy and power.
