Capandball, a Hungarian black powder enthusiast and collector, puts the OG Colt Police wheelgun from 1862 next to an Italian repro side by side on the table and the range.

Just 28,000 Model 1862s were made by Colt and after 150~ years they are getting kinda scarce. However a spaghetti repro is just a mail order away.

Sure, ‘Cap has the whole Bela Lugosi thing going on (who was also Hungarian), but he really knows his black powder guns and not only breaks out the calipers and swaps out parts between the guns to test functionality, but stacks them up on paper as well.
