I have a 1860 Colt Old Army .44 Calvary Model, which means it has the extra screws in the frame, and a notch in the bottom of the grip frame that allows for a rifle stock to be attatched. Does anyone know who might still offer a replica stock for it? Navy Arms use to, but if they still do I haven't been able to find out. The stock has a brass c-clamp type attachment on the end with a large screw that tightens it to the pistols grip. Originally they were issued to Union Calvary with the 1860 Colt Old Army .44's with the 7 1/2" barrels which turned it into a repeating carbine.

You might want to check with Dixie Gun Works and see if they have a stock that will attach to it.

My very first black powder revolver was a 1860 model in .44 caliber. It was a good shooter until I had a chain fire and the frame got stretched. I didn't want to shoot it after that as it would spray lead all over the place when fired. Then a person bought it off me, claiming he wanted to hang it on a wall which I thought was a good idea. I later learned he took it to a gun smith and had the frame shortened. And was shooting it again. I was just glad to get rid of the thing.

I now use a New Army 1858 .44 caliber with the top steel strap and target sights. It is a great shooter ....

Good luck in your search for the stock.

I checked with Dixie. Took some looking but yep they've got nice one for $165.00. Only problem is while searching their site I ran accross two derringer kits that I use to own and have decided I've got to own at least one of them again. ;) One's called Snake Eyes and is a brass two shot (barrels and frame made from solid block of brass), single trigger with mule ear hammers. The other is a two shot swivel barrel, both in .36 caliber. Both are simply wicked and great shooters. Decissions, decissions, what ever shall I do? ;) :lol:

Spirithawk .. don't you know the danger of browsing? The same thing always seems to happen to me. One day I went to a site to buy a ramrod and ended up with a new rifle and seventy five dollars worth of bullets to boot. Worst part is, I forgot to buy the ramrod.

You need to get the rifle stock. And the guns too... :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Yes, but what is really important is, "What did you buy?" ;) :lol:

Way too much stuff. But the flintlock Lyman Trade Rifle is a beauty and I discovered I really needed it to make myself happy... :lol:
