Re: Historical Accuracy of Brass Frame Revolvers
First I believe if you look Colt didn't make a .44 cal NAVY. It would have been .36. Seems the Italian gunmakers thought there was enough of us warthawgs who would like the bigger caliber. It's been 20 years since I have owned a brass frame, I believe most feel the frame streches because of the softer alloy. Have read reports of guys who have shot the brass frames extensively, without problems also.
