Cap and Ball Revolver Basics

Kevin, out resident black powder guru is back out at the range with us today to talk about cap & ball revolvers. We are showcasing two of the most common revolvers available: The 1851 Navy in .36 caliber and the 1860 Army in .44 caliber. The cap & ball system revolutionized the firearms world. Unlike the single shot black powder pistols that were prevalent prior to the cap & ball system, one could fire six times before needing to reload the weapon.

Feel free to contact Kevin at Moss Pawn at the number listed below for any questions you might have regarding black powder, as we carry a full line of firearms, supplies and accessories.
