Beautiful '61! They're my favorites. I dug #3097 years ago on private property at Stones River that is believed to have belonged to a member of the 15th Penn Cavalry (Anderson Troop) killed on 12/29/62.

Interesting thread so I won't start a new one. I was just able to upgrade my 1861 Navy with this revolver.

It followed me home doesn't work in my house. My go to excuse is - "honey I didn't pay too much, I just paid too soon.

So you tried the one; 'I bought it for you' and it didn't work ??? Never does....
Nice one! Never understood why the '61 didn't do so hot in sales. It shoots well and handles great. The buying public can be pretty fickle.
