The admins may move it to the Black Powder forum, but that is a great collection of percussion revolvers.

Won't bug me if they do, though the sub-forum says non-Rugers are allowed.

Very nice, can you rank the quality of the various Italian manufacturers? I have been looking at some various reproductions that are more "historically accurate" than my pair of Ruger Old Armies.

Myself, I like Cimarron - made by Uberti models. Everything is smooth, tight and well machined. Cimarron Customer Service is outstanding. I think Uberti goes the "extra mile" in their reproductions using "original" patents and modern materials.
