Stopped at a LGS today on my way home from work  Very Happy
Been wanting a Pistol for a long time.
Found this Trapper on the bottom of a glass case.
Looks to be shot very little.
Lock feels great with a pretty good feeling trigger.
Bore is clean and shiny. 

The Patriot I got from a coworker. 
I had to clean it up a bit, some surface rust and brass was green.
Bore is perfect, and no cracks in the wood, all is great.
Rust cleaned up with a 1957 copper penny and oil.

I really like the hook on the stock and the trigger guard.
Makes the pistol fit my hand really well.

I also made an offer to a friend of mine for her T/C Patriot .45 cal.

Make sure you disassemble the Patriot and check out the stock carefully. They have a problem with fracturing. Many are repaired or have hidden cracks.

Went to the range this morning, this thing is a Hoot  Very Happy
I thought it would take #11 caps, but it takes #10
Easy clean up, take off barrel and clean in kitchen sink.

hell of a group! That puts most modern pistols to shame!

You can swap the nipple out for #11. Sounds like the previous owner changed it out.

Thanks,
I don't mind the #10 but will also get a proper size nipple.
