Haven't seen one of those out for sale in over ten years. The antique Colt's got used really hard, so there is not much left of most of them. I do have an 1878 that will shoot. I know that because I load primers only in casings and fire them in the gun to check it out. I would never shoot a live round in the gun. . .not even one I reloaded with black powder. Too scary and risky. The old Colts from the 1870's and 1880's all just look to be saying, "Shoot me and I'll show you how to blow up into pieces".
