Default A few of my babies...







The first one is a Remington 1858 Army. It's in great shape and my Grandfather, who I inherited these from, shot it in the 1970's sometime.
I never have.

The 2nd one, a Rogers & Spencer .44, is my most prized pistol.
My grandfather acquired it sometime in the 1930's, but I have no idea on the history. The notches are the thing that kill me. 6 on one side, 7 on the other and initials on the bottom. The PO was probably a legend in his own mind, but it makes for good conversation.

My plan is to have these two in a display coffee table along with my 1873 Winchester....someday

I'm not normally into C&Rs that are that old, my cut off point is 1888, but damn, those are really nice. I've seen pictures of those in some of my books and I think its really cool that you actually have real ones. Are they safe to fire?

The Rogers & Spencer is really nice!! I'd keep them in my safe rather than have friends drooling on them!

My dad said that his dad had fired the R&S at least once and definitely fired the Remi some--late 60's or early 70's.
As for the Winchester rifle, my other grandpa hunted with it all through the
40's and 50's when he was home on leave. I have never shot any of them though.
I was told that all are safe to fire by a C&R appraiser in NV, as long as you don't over load them.

I think all the Rogers & Spencer revolvers were surplused before they were issued and Bannermans bought them all.
