But firearms  like cars no.  Maybe an improvement here and there, different material, but really different no.
The bolt action came about late 1800 IIRC  the semi auto pistol  1907 (preproduction).
since then been revolver/ semi/ and bolt action  every company does each just a bit different but the end is the same.

  A 1896 Mauser broomhandle is a fine Auto pistol and I'm pretty sure there were Borcharts, Bergmans & maybe even Lugers before that. One of the guys in my unit took a perfectly serviceable Bergman off of a dead Taliban in Afghanistan just a couple of years ago. Not a bad pistol even today. Early autos r cool. One of John Wayne's "sons" had 1 IIRC in one of his movies. I like the concept of mag in front of the trigger guard & strippers. Who can't like strippers?

I think Dixie has 'em in stock ($15 cheaper than Old South, ta boot!).

Hi old fogey, you are correct. One can also get the brass framed 1863 for $260 from Dixie. If not interested in using a conversion cylinder the brass framed 1863 is an excellent choice. The brass frame 1863 is also historically accurate. Both brass framed and steel framed 1863s were manufactured by Remington. The brass frame is the more rare than the steel framed.

Or maybe because the poor guy didn't have access to all the expertise available on the Internet?
