The Ruger Old Army is a black-powder percussion revolver introduced in 1972 by the Sturm Ruger company and manufactured until 2008
The Ruger Old Army revolver is unusual in that, unlike
most percussion revolvers on the market, it was not based on a historical
design, but was a modification of Ruger's Blackhawk model, which was itself
based upon the cartridge-firing Colt Peacemaker.
This design was built around the Blackhawk, but it takes
its styling design from the Remington Model 1858 cap and ball pistol.
Confusing earlier models listed as .44 caliber, later as .45, but all use a .457” round balls or .454” conical bullets of pure lead.
This example is marked .45
