    Actually, I don't know. I haven't shot it yet - it needs a new mainspring fashioned. Any spring makers?

    Generally only shoot my 1858 clone in the cooler months with pyrodex and just about any grease type lube works. Crisco, crisco-beeswax, white lithium, bore butter, I used lard for a long time. Forgot to bring any grease one time and was about a half hour away from home. Stopped at a local fishing store and got the only grease they had. Green boat trailer wheel bearing grease, worked fine but was harder to get it all off afterwards. Used to shoot with a guy that used pnut butter in a Ruger old army. If I shoot a lot occasionally I'll have to pull the cylinder and wipe/lube the pin, but usually only after shooting a good long time and by then the gun is filthy. Mine shoots more accurate with a bore butter felt wad under the ball, but that really only comes to play with the targets set out further.

    My Savage & North went to pieces when I tried to take away the Pam.
    That's neat! I hadn't heard of those before. Wonder if that's where Nagant got the idea from?

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions. Always bug's me about a good revolver i don't seem to make fit me. Guess we are all different and it takes different guns to make everybody's fit and comfort level.

    I wonder if removing the trigger guard would be such a bad idea?

    The Paterson revolver didn't have a trigger guard.

    I had also thought about removing the trigger guard. Think i will cut and modify my old Pietta brasser trigger guard. This way i would not ruin a pricey guard.

    Wouldnt the back of the trigger hurt more than the guard when it bit ya ?
    I have a colt clone with a squareback guard - its nice to shoot.
