Range Time: Crude Single-Shot Colt 1862 Police Revolver on the Range
Updated: Jan 18
You may remember the Colt Model 1862 Police revolver that was converted from a six-shot to a single-shot from a previous blog post. If that sounds weird, that's because it is. Make sure to check out that blog post first to see exactly what we're dealing with, including a full teardown of the gun that was only possible thanks to the wide assortment of Brownells Magna-Tip screwdrivers. It would have never come apart and gone back together without that variety of blade tips!
Well, after getting it apart, removing a ton of built-up gunk with cleaning supplies from Brownells and getting it in tip-top shape, I ordered some Hornady round balls from Brownells and I took it out to the range.
What transpired was a range trip the likes of which I've never before experienced. There's a very good chance that whatever you think happened, you're wrong. Anyway, on with the shooting!
Watch the video to see how it went:
Well, now that you've watched the video, what did you think? Were you right? Were you surprised? I know that my initial assumptions of how things would go was wrong and I was surprised.
Other gear in the video that was also from Brownells: electronic ear pro, target stand, and targets.
