    I am very interesting in picking up a style of revolver used back in the late 1800s, preferably a top break style one too. I don't know what kinds were used back then with that style of loading/unloading so I was wondering if anyone had interest in these and could direct me in a good location.

    What type? Muzzle loading or cartridge? Main difference is how they are loaded.

    First half of that century, muzzle loading revolvers were the norm.

    Second half was dominated by revolvers firing metal cartridges.

    Colt SAA is the most stereotypical "cowboys and indians" pistol I can think of.

    I prefer the Scofield clones (Uberti). I bought mine for about $650 from Sportsman's Warehouse.
