Description: Because this is chambered in .44 Cal. black powder, this does NOT qualify as a firearm and, accordingly, no FFL is required for this revolver. It ships directly to your door. (No shipping however where black powder is regulated, including NYC, CA and NJ). This model is fine condition stainless steel and includes factory box and manual.

The Ruger Old Army revolver is unusual in that, unlike most percussion revolvers on the market, it is not based on a historical design, but was a modification of Ruger's Blackhawk model, which was itself based upon the cartridge-firing Colt Peacemaker. The Old Army revolver accordingly incorporates many modern design features, though employing antiquated black-powder component loading.

This design was built around the Blackhawk, but it takes its styling cues from the Remington Model 1858 cap and ball pistol. This is due to the frame being longer in front to accommodate the loading lever and pivot pin.

Unlike the Blackhawk, the Old Army did not make use of Ruger's transfer bar safety; instead the revolver relied upon a series of safety notches between each chamber on the cylinder like some models of the Remington/Colt or other black powder revolvers of the mid-19th century had.

The revolver was tested by loading each chamber to capacity with Bullseye smokeless powder and a lead ball. While this might result in catastrophic failure in other firearms, the Old Army is strong enough to handle the pressure.
