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.

    you must be refer`ng to a model called "the buffalo" in stainless 12" bbl?
    i think theyre discontinued except for the brass frame which you dont want.
    A true bunline is a colt saa, not capnball.

    Ned Buntline was a pen mane for Ed Carroll who use to write stories about the 'larger tha life' characters of the wild west. Most of that writing was post civil war but all of it was fictional.

    Just as fictional was the production of a 'Buntline Special' handgun. Those actually came about much later like post WWII when Colt began selling lots of single actions due to TV shows like Gunsmoke.

    There were long barrel percussion revolvers in the civil war era and they were a sought after arm but these guns were usually carbines with butstocks and had no association with the name Buntline.
