What says the old west more than six shooters do?
Hickok45 has both new and old to shoot.
Witness Hickok45's range time with Colt Frontier six shooters new and old.
Hickok45 has a dual set of Colt Frontier Six Shooters. One is a modern copy and the other is an original revolver that was made in 1887 chamber for .44/40. That old cowboy revolver was made only for black powder-loaded cartridges of that time.
The new Colt and the ancient Colt have a few differences, but ultimately just about the same. That is incredible: the design worked so well that it is still kicking today.
Special thanks go out to Hickok45 for sharing these great videos. It is always great to see a historical weapon still belch smoke out on the range.
