Fun Black Powder Plinker

Does anyone make black powder revolvers that you can swap the cylinders real easy and fast, like a break open > pull out > new block > close type? Do guns like that even exist?

I know that break open revolvers are kind of a meme due to metalurgy and meterials needed only coming around once pistols were already good enough to move away from revolvers all together but they looks really fun to do and for a modern shooter who is a black powder enthusiast.

    I will never understand people who want to shoot a black powder revolver but not actually get the whole experience. Why not just get a regular revolver at that point?

        I will never understand people who want to shoot a black powder revolver but not actually get the whole experience. Why not just get a regular revolver at that point?

        I do want the full experience and am already far into getting a cap and ball but was looking into if there are other similar guns

        You should get a BP cartridge revolver like the Cattleman, Colt New Army or topbreak.

        You are probably right, might as well go for a regular black powder revolver instead of overcomplicating my cap and ball one

        A second revolver.

        a bandolier of revolvers, like they did with flintlock pistols

            actually it would, many countries have a very active black powder repro scene because of firearm restrictions and most have escaped the worst of regulations so far. Generally menaces are too fricking stupid to realize there is a legal way to get firable guns without as much or any odious licensing or they just use modernish black market guns.

            and yes, I'm aware the original load of .38 long colt was black powder
            that doesn't make the new army a 'black powder cartridge gun', even the US Army switched the loading to smokeless powder

            they also had regular armorer inspections, access to spare parts and had the money to research smokeless loads and formulations that didn't cause undue strain on the guns. you'll probably be fine shooting soft smokeless loads of .38 colt because most of the guns chambered in it are older ones but also it's not their fricking problem if your antique blows up because you're too lazy to give it proper loads.

              t. moronic

              Many euro countries have laws that only exempt original antiques and not reproductions
              Some will exempt original cartridge guns, while others will only exempt muzzleloaders.
              Other will have cutoff at 1890 (wassenaar agreement/ norway / cehia / belgium) or 1870 (netherlands/spain/switzerland)

              I'm just going to assume your underage and that's why you're being unnecessarily paranoid in the first place

          Ngl, dude you really should open up with what country you're from. Laws differ a lot and you can wind up with a gun but still have to faff about endlessly to get components or even somewhere to plink anyway.

          why do these posts never, ever specify what country they live in even though telling us would let us help with narrowing down firearm law ins and outs?

    Why would you want to do that? You only take out the cylinder when cleaning it.

    Would buying a Colt Dragoon or 1862 pocket for a first percusion revolver be a bad move? I know a 1851/61 navy or 1860 army would be the smarter choice, but I'm drawn towards the extremes in size and want to buy them before Uberti discontinues those models.

    Remington 1958 models. If properly lubed with cleaner powders(swiss, or toilet paper black powder) it can swap out 2 or 3 cilinders at the very least before getting caked up.
    Other option would be a black powder cartrige revolver with a rubberised mallet and a 30 double dollars handy handloader kit

    ?si=pr8J2vuZ_w6qARDC

    Get a good replica.
    Uberty i think (might be fuddlore) uses forged parts so even if you fudge your loads somehow , you wont damage the gun...too badly.
    Still
    as long as you do not load a 400 grain projectile or use some megafast burning powder it shouldnt beat the gun up

    40 gr of the Holy Black triple F is the biggest load a 45 lc cartrige can hold and still seat a bullet. Gallery loads use 15-25 grains and a filler material. Most prople stick to 30ish grains if accuracy and pleasent recoil are the goal but gallery and full power are not inaccurate either
    Round balls are the cheapest option i think.
    As far as black powder alternatives. , you will have to research that on your own.
    You can also go for a 38 speshul conversion. Less powder less lead. Cheaper to shoot
