New Test Platform for Small Optical Sights

I have constructed a Super Walker Colt muzzleloading revolver with a Weaver sight base on which I intend to test a series of optical sights.

Because the Walker is a powerful black-powder revolver it has significant recoil and also discharges quantities of black-powder residue at the barrel-cylinder gap directly in front of the optical sights. This is a very challenging environment for any optical sight.

If your company has an optic that you think is suitable for this pistol and up to the test, I would like to try it on this pistol where it will be exposed to sticky, crossive black-powder cumbustion residues.   

If your sight can be mounted on Weaver bases and you wish to send me one for testin you may contact me at hoveysmith@bellsouth.net  for shipping instructions.
