Thanks for the tip - I must learn to love the look of the brass models.
When it comes to accuracy, I've read a lot of claims about people achieving tight groupings at 25 yards, and the Remington being more accurate than modern cartridge pistols and so on. Are all these people using the 12" barrel models? Or is the 8 inch barrel also very accurate?
