    Welcome to the forum Kyle.

    Maybe you are thinking that black powder only means muzzleloaders? All cartridges, rimfire and centerfire, were loaded with black powder until 1890s when smokeless powder was introduced, and black powder cartridges continued to be available until ca 1930s.

    If you have a black powder era Model 1900 (made before 1909) and are concerned about using later replacement parts, don't be, as no changes in lockwork design were made in the 41 years of manufacture. The upgrade for smokeless powder was the use and preparation of a higher grade of steel for the frame and cylinder.
