Maybe this is why they are so rare, I have most of them.

In his defense, the Ruger Old Army is relatively rare, compared to the huge number of Italian replicas on the market. I wish I'd bought one when they were in production, but they weren't that common in the stores around here even when they were in production.

O P, I guess if you had whipped out a conversion cylinder in 45 Colt plus one in 45 a c p for your R O A, and started switching them around he would have come down with a brain apoplexy.
I have all the patience in the world with someone trying to LEARN about a particular gun they know nothing of..... Hardly any at all with someone telling me what firearms I DON'T have.

FYI, I was over last weekend to a gunshow in Bozeman, MT, and I saw at least 5 ROAs there for sale. All the common variety of blued and SS 7 1/2" adjustable sights. So they are out there. Cost was a bit over $500 on average. Already have my set, so didin't pick any up. Only have two hands .

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

I have a stainless ROA that ive had since 1992. Of all my black powder weapons (5), it is easily the most accurate: hole-in-hole at 25 meters. It is even more accurate than my Bisley in 45 colt!
