Hello,
Does anyone know if there is a firing replica made of the 1850 Colt Revolving Musket?

Thank you,

I don't think so. You might check with Dixie Gun Works, they seem to be one of the best sources for replicas. I think the closest thing you are gonna find is the Remington Cattleman's Carbine, a 1858 New Model Army cap and ball revover with a long barrel and a rifle stock. It ain't the same, I know, but it is the closest thing I have seen in a while.

Colt Revolving Rifle

I've not heard of a replica of the old Colt Revolving Rifle either.

Folklore has it that the Original Colt revolving shotguns and rifles were unpopular with users because of it's tendency to have multiple discharges. That would make it kinda ROUGH on the persons support hand and arm!

The shoulder-stocked revolver carbines you notice, do not have forearms.

Is it possible that even the blackpowder replica gun manufacturers are LEERY of putting out a product that is likely to come back and bite them?? :shock:
