1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    The 1873 is a cartridge firearm. Does not exist in percussion.

    The last Colt percusssion revolver manufactured was a variant of the Model 1862. The picture below is the first Colt manufactured for metallic cartridge and is from 1872. Up until then Smith and Wesson controlled the patent on through bore technology and prevented other manufacturers from the move to cartridge revolvers.

    Correct you are RM

    And although it is a bit of a sacrilidge to make a SAA in BP, Uberti and Pietta do.
    That's what I'm looking for.
    Thanks
