I made my loading blocks, about any decent gun store should have a holster to fit. a lot of those pistols will fit the same holster. the south was very poor and had to use what they had. a lot of the men used their own rifles cause there wasn't enough to go around. It's why you can find a plethora of different bullets on a battleground or on a rebel campsite. Read your manual and don't over charge it. the brass frames are not strong as the steel ones. I also use a wad between the ball and powder, always use something to prevent a chainfire, which would not be good. They are fun to shoot and can be accurate.
