    Like the title says, I'm looking for a non-black powder 1800's revolver, much like those used in movies like 3:10 to Yuma and the Assassination of Jesse James.

    Could you also list some pro's and con's of them.

    Please don't shout out cons just because you don't like certain aspects of the gun, I would like accurate info is possible as far as reliability and functionality and also maybe accuracy.

    Are they accurate?
    Are they reliable?

    Thanks homeboys.

    and just like in the other thread....no 1800s revolver will be non-BP.
    Modern repros may (and many are) capable of handling smokeless loads just fine, but a cap-and-ball style revolver will be best with BP or "cowboy" loads if you're using a cylinder conversion.
