THE OGRE ADAM: does anyone know if this works for a 1858 Remington new army?
cadzie renrut: Does anyone know if Belt Mountain is actually still in business? Their website is still up. Sent in an order a few weeks back but no reply and they never cashed my check. Called the number a few times, most times you don't get an answering machine. The one time I did, I left a message but no call back. Looks like a great product and I was really looking forward to it. Really a shame.
papawx3: Personally, on the music, I prefer "I'm a good old Rebel" to this yankee song. Video was great though, very informative.
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 others.
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 now.
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. Kaido Ojamaa.
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?
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.
martini carbine: Nope I don't like it.... The ruger old army just doesn't look the same, without the loading lever .
wade day: you're beard is badass
Matthijs van Rijswijk: i'm realy interested in replica revolvers but i cannot find a company that dilivers them in the netherlands can someone post me a site back that does. thank you for your time
Gunblastdotcom: Some people put in a knurled knob in place of the slotted screw head.
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!
Gunblastdotcom: You can find most anything Ruger at the Ruger Forum. rugerforum-dot-com.
scandaroonman: Hi Jeff, Where did you find a spare cap and ball cylinder for the ROA?
