I'll leave it there. Closest I've come to a percussion arm is to look at a repop Hawkins--and to admire Johan's whatever he was carrying that day. Never had one, never shot one.

However, one last thought. For each 40 rounds issued, 48 caps were provided. I don't think the extra 8 were intended to replace those that fell off.

Sorry. Got to fire up Johan one more time. The troopers under Forrest and Mosby and other legitimate hell-raisers carried at least one if not three six shooters (discounting the sawed-off). Were these guys concerned about the caps falling off? I don't think so.
