Chase Kelly: I gotta question for you, I recently shot my ROA a couple weeks ago for the
first time. It was clean and ready to go. However I noticed a delay with
most of the shots. I used 3 different kinds of caps throughout the shoot,
and none of them seemed to show any superior performance. It wasn't a long
delay at all, but it was certainly noticeable. In fact I'd say 1 in 5 times
it didn't ignite at all! I was surprised that such a modern pistol would do
this. I was loading just under a .45 colt casing of Pyrodex P propellant
and a .457 round ball topped with all purpose grease, the caps used were,
and older and a newer can of 100 FC UMC Remingtons, and CCI magnum caps.
All no. 11. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this normal? Also a few caps
never popped. Again I don't recall which ones were more consistent than the
Kaido Ojamaa: Mr. Quinn,
That was an interesting video and some nice shooting. I wish they could
have made a one piece unit with the loading lever, in that way the
Remington design is superior to the Ruger.. Never the less the Old Army is
a fantastic Piece, I've had one since 1984 and designed some very effective
Conical Bullets for it as well as other Percussion Revolvers for hunting
purposes for Big Game and they really work making those Percussion
Revolvers into Magnums, In several tests we achieved 41 Magnum power out of
the Old Army with Triple Seven P3 F Powder and my 240 and 255 grain
Universal Bullets. The Old Army can really perform and if you would like
some of my Universal Bullets to see for yourself, feel free to contact me.
pinkiewerewolf: I would love to get a couple ROAs and this conversion for them. I also wish
Ruger would make them again.
tnhl77: does any one make this for the 1851 navy model?
dkeith45: Cool braids. My GF braids mine a bit like that on warm days but mine's only
about half as long as yours. : ) My profile pic is old. Gotta pretty long
full beard atm.
Cool vid. I used to have one of these old army's but never liked that the
cylinder was so tough to remove. Nice to see there is a way around that
1717jbs: Shooting without safety glasses! That's smart.
ra777wow: How much does the cylinder pin and the lock pin cost ? good video btw -
Courtney Titus: Which percussion caps works best for you with the ROA?
Charles Isaacks: I think you can buy black powder guns without a background check-as you can
see the conversion cylinder pops rite in-purty cool-huh'
MrGreat50cal: Great vids sir, you are the definition of american.
mds19238: It looks like the pendulum has swung way too far in this persons decision
to use the particular name he has chosen. A recent & rare visit to the mall
produced a young man with the words FU, spelled out in large all-cap
letters on the front of his tee-shirt...seems that all moral values are
lost on some folks. Regarding your last statement; you were much more civil
than I want to be. Maybe he'll get a brain & change his name.
Dangf150: Great vids. I really like the variety of vids that you put on your channel.
Soullessnut: it's not worth arguing with someone so much about their first amendment
rights if you ask me, no matter how offensive they may be to certain people.
constructiontech1970: That is a fine looking revolver Jeff!!
kwacker45: old is sometimes best :-) simply pretty pretty firearm, made even better
Gunblastdotcom: I love Single Actions, but they'll be coming after AKs first.
Brian Smith: This invention makes it too easy to reload. Way too easy. I think
California will make these illegal soon.
Gunblastdotcom: Gunbroker-dot-com and Gunsamerica-dot-com. Jeff
Marcel Klein: ooooooo i liked that one. :)
Haloskeeper1: Nice Review!
Mountain Storm: I've got a similar cylinder for my il Pietta Remington 1858 and it works
DustyGamma: Thought of getting the pin hole of the cylinder beveled? I'm betting a 35
degree bevel would speed things up! I'm sure the gunsmiths you know would
know best; maybe the base pin could be safely tapered instead, I wouldn't
Iam TheOsprey: Damn...Jeff's becoming a cyborg with that camera in place of his right
fee1776: The pistol, music and your beard goes together well. LOL. Good briefing.
nexus1g: You've nothing invested in your channel, just create a new account. Bu
thanks for apologizing for it.
Gunblastdotcom: You can find most anything Ruger at the Ruger Forum. rugerforum-dot-com.
Hellhound 1055: Did you have to alter the base revolver, or is it just drop in and go?
G36Jeff: 2nd and i love them more.keep em coming lol.
jnewton1621: That is a great group for one hand at 15 yds!
ChazOneZeroSeven: i'm pretty much infatuated by this thing and if it's under 1500 then i want
one some time in the next year.
ukwarrior89: 3:03 "Git off my lawn"
YOYOBOY666999: Nice gun, love the simplicity. Thanks 4 the vid.
rbenterprises100: Real nice gun Jeff !!
ChazOneZeroSeven: the ruger old army is freaking awesome how much do they cost?
wade day: you're beard is badass
1guyin10: Oh noooo. You've kilt the paperman..... again! ...and got him good I might
add. Nice shootin'!
Gunblastdotcom: The only problem with that method is that when slid forward to remove the
cylinder, the Ruger loading assembly tends to disassemble itself. Jeff
nexus1g: It was much more civil than I wanted to be too, but they say you catch more
flies with honey.
TheAlexagius: i know this would sell well in the uk as cap and ball are the only legal
Hellhound 1055: Thanks, I appreciate the fast response. Keep making amazing videos.
svarthek: What would be a good place to purchase an old army that is already
converted for cartridges and quick change cylinders?
Jedi Majic: That is really cool !
nexus1g: It's their first amendment right that Congress shall pass no law regarding
their freedom of speech. My not liking what they have to say or what they
name themselves is not relevant to the terms of the first amendment.
Please, if you're going to live in this country, take a single day and
learn the document on which this country is based.
nexus1g: You did, in fact, infer it by stating my stating dislike for their name was
arguing with them about their first amendment right. I pointed out that
everything said within these last few posts had nothing to do with the
first amendment. The best case scenario for you is that the entirety of
your post was completely pointless and irrelevant. I said it in a much
nicer fashion previously, but if you really want to go down that road with
whom is clearly your intellectual superior, we can.
OilThe Gun: Thank you for the review.
Pheasant815: Nice look at this revolver and accessories.
gat569: Loved this tune the first time I heard it. But it's especially good with
this video/cap and ball revolver.
Ross Seymour: I'm not sure I understand Jeff. You didn't use the loading assembly in your
video. I wasn't including it in my application either.
glnelson1956: Ruger's mistake dropping the ROA.. Extremely versatile gun. Mike Beliveau,
writer for COMBAT HANDGUNS and GUNS OF THE OLD WEST, recently posted video
tests of the ROA firing a custom 255gr RNFP conical made for C & B
revolvers . Using only 25grs of Hodgdon 777 3Fg, a 7.5" ROA made 920fps
with the 255gr RNFP, & punched the big slug thru 11 one-gal water jugs, 5.5
FEET of water penetration. With conversion cylinders, the ROA can also
shoot 45 Colt, 45 S&W,&45 ACP. Darn capable & useful gun!
