Hello,

I just recently picked up a DGG/Euroarms 1851 Navy in .36 caliber. I would like to find some percussion caps for it. Is there any place in town where they may be found anymore?

Thanks
 
I don't know of any shops down that way...sorry.

I do know that as a general rule :
Most cap and ball revolvers are set up for the #10 cap.
With that said...#11 caps will also work.
#11 caps will be a bit loose...so it is helpful to give 'em a pinch after you place them on the nipple.
( Oh boy...I know where that sentence will end up...:eek: :D )

Although Andy is a master baiter, I’m not going to facilitate his weakness…. for the good of his eyesight.
