Good companions

Although the colt 1851 is a period correct companion to the Enfield musketoon, I prefer the Smith & Wesson Model 10 military & police (38SPL). This one is of 1970’s vintage but retrofitted with 1930’s walnut grips and flatter lanyard ring. It is a very accurate shooter and still used regularly in competition. It is not only more accurate than the colt 1851 but obviously more reliable and powerful in the field.

The first 2 rounds before the hammer is usually snake shot when going into the veldt. Really big black mambas are common in the places I frequent. I don’t want to mess around with a revolver that is not 100% reliable when confronted by a large black mouth serpent.Best companions

Being an Indiana Jones fan, it is an appropriate revolver to have on the belt, especially with an old style flap holster.
