    I just acquired a new revolver.

    It is Civil war era,
    1864 to 1870.

    Any one know anything about this pistol?

    Note the Point on the cartridge, that is the back of it, the teat. The bullet comes out the flat side.

    :rofl:Talk about $25 per round!

    You are looking at a show piece. Not something you want to go out and shoot 100 rounds through.
