Re: Firearm Specialties 45-70 Dragoon & 1860 Army
The company themselves makes fine replicas. They got their start making replicas of these old revolvers. As far as being chambered for the 45-70 i believe that the early ones were made on request of special order. I have a couple of the replicas made by this company and though I have never fired one I know a few who has and they seem to love them. But as I said I believe that this was a special order size for the firearm you have. As far as the barrel wedge I am not sure. I will make a call to a guy who does re-enactments and ask and see what his take on that is.
