I like the side-by-side comparison of the black powder surplus vs the smokeless.
Neat guns. I wouldn’t lie if I didn’t admit that a part of me was interested in seeing somebody re-working the top-break auto-ejection action for modern powerful revolver loads.
(For those that don’t know when revolvers started getting loaded for .357 Magnum and bigger the lockup and single hinge just didn’t handle the pressure and the guns would tend to pop open under recoil, leading revolver makers to invent the swing-out cylinder “Hand Ejectors” we know today)
Just like that opening the gun pops out your empties, and you have so much room to work with the cylinder with the frame broken open like that.
