Western expansion in the mid-19th century dictated the U.S. Cavalry carry a reliable sidearm designed for the times, and these pistols were the mainstay across the US. Traditions' firearms have been designed by engineers who are also hunters and outdoorsmen. They know what fit, feel, and function is all about and make sure that every Traditions firearm meets our high standards of firepower, performance, and value.

This pistol is antiqued. Meaning they took a regular blued pistol and distressed the bluing to make it look like it was well worn. It is just a standard Pietta made 36 caliber pistol with a cosmetic job. Not at all stainless steel. If you do not field strip these to the last part and completely clean. They will rust. That said they will shoot better than many of the auto pistols our urban commando's like to carry. I can regularly hit pie plates at 50 yards with all six shots. They are sighted for about 75 yards.
