Hello Members All:

Many thanks for the help with the Armsport black powder revolver! I have searched in every pattern that I could think of and couldn't find any round lead bullets for the pistol here on GunBroker. I have tried all 4 sports/firearms outlets here and in three other nearby towns. All to no avail. Where do you buy yours?? Many thanks in advance - AQH

Many Thanks:

I did not see the SLS symbol - so I will give them a call in the morning. I did a search but did not find the lubed felt wads that go over the bullet. Where do I find those. Many Thanks - AQH

Wads go over powder, UNDER the bullet. Do not have a source, because I am a cheap chollie- I use a dab of Crisco over the top of the bullet. Works, help keep powder fouling soft, it's cheap, I always have some, and my targets have much lower cholesterol.

However, here is a source- https://www.trackofthewolf.com/list/item.aspx/174/1

Hello 11b6r:

Many thanks for your help. I have placed an order with the track of the wolf. I will try loading and shooting a few before I go hog hunting during black powder season close to where the Suwannee River joins the Gulf of Mexico.

Best Regards - AQH

You need the Dixie Gun Works catalog for black powder shooting. Track-of-the-Wolf is also good. Hog hunting?? That model revolver is not noted as a powerhouse. Kinda like hunting with a .38 Special.
Your revolver will probably shoot high at 25 yards. The only way to correct it is to raise the front sight someway, i.e., make it higher.

Hello nacv130: The Armsport is not the primary firearm - it's backup. The primary is a CVA clone of a Hawkin 50. I just want to know how it shoots before I may have to use it.

Gentlemen - I thank you for your assistance with the Armsport BP revolver that I got here on GunBroker. An order has been placed with Track of the Wolf for the things suggested.

The person that owns Tandy Leather Shop had a flap holster that is worn cross-draw - forward canted - on my left side. It is now mine.

Again many thanks for your assistance - Regards - AQH
