SMALL ARMS RAFFLE

This year’s raffle features a set of Civil War reproduction revolvers - the Colt “Army" Model 1860 and the Remington New Model Army. In addition to the revolvers, this raffle comes in a custom handcrafted wooden display case, with a powder flask, a brass .44 caliber bullet mold, and a brass container for caps (caps not included).
