84-C4, is real close ,as the way i understand, 'THE LAW'84 C4 said:Black Powder Firearms, and their replicas, are NOT considered firearms if it is a pre-1900 design, AND if it uses percussion, flint, match, etc., ignition. It is only regarded as a firearm if it is used to commit a crime. It's interesting when you take into account the power of the Colt Walker, it's still one of the most powerful handguns in the world. While we're on this note, I think low power, low calibre (as if there are other kinds on the market today) rimfire firearms should have similar rules as the BP firearms. :uzi:
BTW: In regards to felons and minors, that's sort of a grey area, and legal action will usually depend on the mood of the police officer or the DA. Unless you're in Kalifornia, where any type of firearm, or device resembling one, is outlawed.
Last time I handled an Old Army, which is admittedly 5+ years ago, there was no transfer bar system on it. The Blackhawks, Bisleys, etc, do, but not any Old Army I've ever seen.LEE3370 said:Hello Folks,
I just found this forum and started reading some of the posts. Good reading, good info.
Just one problem, I shoot a Ruger Old Army and clean it when I am done and have never seen a transfer bar system in it. After reading here that it has one, I went to the gun safe and got it and a blackhawk out for comparsion. I still don't see the transfer bar system. The Old Army has a hammer on it just like the Remington New Army. Please, is there something I am overlooking.
Really?It was my understanding that the only diff between them was the BP specific parts.That the frame was pure Blackhawk.Well,if so ,I've been wrong before.Just not today until now. :toilet:John in AR said:Last time I handled an Old Army, which is admittedly 5+ years ago, there was no transfer bar system on it.
