That is a nice patterson. I'll bet it's a lot of fun to shoot. Have you put many rounds through it?
There's nothing like black powder to get your blood stirring.

Looks great but.... Like I wrote earlier they got it too right in the replication of the original design. Difficult to load, I used a loading stand versus the separate loading lever, which was too flimsy. It didn't handle very well and I wasn't impressed with it.
Of course I could be a bit spoiled by some of the stuff that came later when Colt Improved his design in revolvers. I'd rather shoot a Colt Navy any day than a Paterson. I took a Ruger Old Army to the range on the same day and there was no going back after that California Girl, decked out in stainless steel, went to work.
As for the Paterson, it's a bear to disassembly and reassemble, so after I got her cleaned up she has been sitting in the safe.
