I was always wondering. Do people in China have things "Made In USA ?"

Back when I got my first 1858 My first bp revolver ::) I had no one to show me anything had to teach myself. after all that shooting and cleaning I finely got a computer and someone told me I needed to open up and clean the guts of the revolver. It was like oh no bet I've really messed up this gun. All those years I would shot gun scrubber down into the guts and let it all run out till it looked clean then when dry I would shot sheath down into the guts and wipe it down till dry. Hot water & soap for the inside the barrel & cylinder chambers & nipples. Then a very light coat of Knight oil. Let sit over night next day I would look it over and wipe it down again to make sure it was dry wipe the inside of the barrel & cylinder chambers with bore butter. Have never had a problem with RUST. Oh the guts I open up the 58 one night and the inside if the 58 looked liked new no rust matter of fact I got this one back in the 80s and this must have been the pick of the litter cause it is still just as tight as the day I open the box its Just gettin broke in and I've shot it so many times I've lost count. One more little note when I open up my colt .36 cal 51 there was so much crap went down into the guts it supprised me. Not like the 58 it was still kind of clean after shooting it. I just cleaned it up and will shoot the Colt 51 with a smile. It's a feel good cool little revolver. I'm trying to make my next buy a 1858 Police .36 cal. what you think? Good choice for a .36 cal yeah?  {+*
If it's not broke don't try fixin it.
