    Brocock Air Cartridge Revolvers

    Thought I would share some pictures of my Brocock Air Cartridge Revolvers which can only be held on FAC these days and have to be destroyed or deactivated when I go to the great armoury in the sky.

    I still shoot muzzle loading revolvers, so these have the correct weight and balance together with similarly slow lock times making them ideal for indoor practice.

    Shame we can't all still enjoy the realism and fun they provided due to yet another ineffective piece of legislation.

    What beautiful examples of quality gunmaking craftsmanship and of the stupidity of some firearms legislation.

    I used to own a Specialist for competitions and an Uberti SAA Cattleman for play. Didn't like those cartridges though - very temperamental and not as accurate as a Umarex SAA.

    However for realism and sheer quality the Uberti's set the benchmark exceptionally high.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I had a few at the time and still have a reasonable collection on ticket.....Yes they could be tempremental, but I have also used an Orion as a target pistol and shot a 50 score, I have built some very unique pieces and had great fun shooting them, a .30 cal model 52, even an Ensign in .45 I can't think of any other system that was or is as variable as these were!
    I suppose I am just biased!!
