Any Replica Colt 1860 Centaures out there?
 
A Centaure is a Belgium made replica Colt 1860 black powder pistol. If any of you have one or for sale. Give me a shout. It does not have to be in working condition.

Thanks.

There are many 1860 replicas out there, but Centaure is what I am looking for.
 
There are many 1860 replicas out there, but Centaure is what I am looking for. They were made in the 1960's and only 20k were made. They were made in Belgium and under a patent from Colt, meaning that they are using parts that could be interchangeable with the originals.

Thanks, but those are not Centaure's, nice though.

MrTokarev 05-02-2013 10:39 PM

Sorry. Does Centaure refer to the Belgian manufacturer?

Yes, the Centaures are made in Belgium. Check out the site that JTecalo postes, I am member number 151, signed up just today. Worth reading about if you are a collector of fine antique pistols. Thanks.

OP - I'd never heard of these particular reproduction revolvers before -- good luck on your search.
