2006.13.18 | 1994 | L: 11.75 in, Barrel length: 5.5 in, H: 5.25 in | Gift of William B. Ruger, Jr. | Taken from the Ruger web site: http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FASubType?type=Revolver&subtype=Black%20Powder "Black powder revolvers do not fire conventional fixed ammunition or cartridges. Rather, they use loose black powder, a separate projectile, and a separate percussion cap. This system was popular prior to and during the American Civil War, after which it was largely replaced by cartridge-firing revolvers. However, the thrill of firing these antique-type firearms continues to this day, and many users prefer to use black powder revolvers.Ruger "Old Army" black powder revolvers are among the most advanced of their type. They utilize many features of the Ruger New Model Blackhawk revolvers and have precision adjustable sights. The unique loading lever/ramrod is designed specifically not to unlatch during recoil, a common problem with older black powder revolvers. Its all-coil spring mechanism gives unprecedented durability in what is essentially a time-tested 150-year-old design." | Ruger Old Army Blackpowder revolver | .45 percussion | 148-00008 | 2006.13.18.JPG | firearm | ivory | synthetic | stainless steel | revolver | pistol | Ruger Old Army Blackpowder Revolver Maker: Sturm, Ruger & Co.; Southport, Connecticut Serial Number: 148-00008 Caliber: .45 percussion Date: 1994 Catalogue Number: 2006.13.18 Gift of William B. Ruger, Jr. Instead of a cased cartridge, this revolver uses loose black powder, a bullet, and a percussion cap. Ruger designed this revolver to ensure that the loading lever/ ramrod stays in place during recoil, a problem earlier models frequently encountered. | Sturm, Ruger & Co., Southport CT
