    Nice example; looks to have been parkerized. That closespin might be the same vintage.

    Took the revolver out to a friend's range and shot some 40 rounds and the old Warhorse performed flawlessly and was spot on every time. Yes, tight as a drum and a real hoot to shoot! Since this range has only metal targets no photos but next time will have photos of paper targets at another range. Used this modern factory loaded boxes 250 gr lead flat nose lead and 240 Gr RNL . As noted these are light loads seller used in his 1873 Colt SAA and Winchester 1873.

    The M1909, M1917, New Service, etc style revolvers are fun to shoot. At one time I had a targeted New Service in .45 Colt that would shoot "one hole".
