Just talked to a lady who's selling a nice 1902 Colt DA Army/Navy 1892 model revolver that belonged to her grandfather.
The price is right, but the scarcity and high price of .41 Long Colt ammo has me concerned.
Has anyone reloaded this cartridge, or, has a line on picking some up for less then $75.00 a box.

I'd for sure load for that cartridge.. mild revolver brass often will last 10-20 loadings so that's 500-1000 shots out of 50 pieces of brass. Dies are like $20-30.
good luck.. I'd imagine it'd be easier to load than .38 Special and that's a very easy case to load.

The gun is selling for $300.00 cash.
Anyone interested in buying one of these, because I'm going to pass on it.

It's listed on the Portland Craigslist under Colt Revolver.
The phone # is 503-523-6213 and the lady is named Nancy.
I talked her down over the phone from $350.00 to $300.00 and she is in Beaverton.
Just not my cup of tea. I was amazed that the ad is still up and running after a day on CL.
