That one is German, dated 1830, arsenal converted from flint lock to percussion in the 1850's (IIRC), 62 caliber.

The Colt is also original, but not in working condition.  The rest are reproductions.  I shoot them all but the Colt.

Very nice Roscoe, great set. 

Do you have a favorite among the reproduction models?  That Rogers & Spencer is showing some nice honest wear; a favored look for some of us. 

Did you do the fabrication on the snub Rem?  What does the Colt need to get it up and running?

An real hansom collection you got there.

The Rogers & Spencer is my favorite of the repros I have, but I am also very fond of the Spiller & Burr.  I made the American walnut grips for the S&B, since the factory ones looked terrible, and I also made a new front sight for it, since the original was way too short.

The Colt could probably be brought back to working condition.  I would like to sell it ($150 and it is yours).  It needs the loading lever mechanism, some screws and springs, and the cylinder has extreme "end shake" (I think it is called).

I did the work myself, including the hot dip blue, on the repro Remington.  I bought the gun used, and the end of the barrel had been hacked off.  I shortened it a little more and squared up the muzzle, and found a suitable front sight in the spare parts bin.  I also rounded the grip.

Correction; the German pistol is 68 caliber, not 62.
