    The 1861 colts are by far the most streamlined and well balanced of the cap lock pistols you can find today. Often dubbed the "sexy dragoons" these pistols are defiantly pretty to look at. They also function just as well as there larger counterparts. I like the .36 (to put that in to perspective a .38 specials true caliber is .357) caliber cap locks, more lead per pound, less powder per shot. They also work just fine for smaller game if hunting is your first choice. Though even if it's small I might not go after anything that can fight back with the .36. Accuracy in the 1861 are the best I?ve found in the cap lock revolvers. Everyone I've ever shot was quite accurate even the brass frames. Unlike the Remington revolvers these pistols are front heavy without a doubt. This however helps hold the pistol level and makes the recoil less than apparent. Defiantly a good pick for target shooting or plinking. If you are buying a cap lock for the first time I would suggest getting more information since they have additional safety concerns than cartridge pistols.
