Did this video help you?

AustinofEarth: This was the first Hickok45 video I ever watched, I was going through a black powder phase. I've since watched every video, love this guy.

Mishawaka Post: Remington actually sold their revolvers for half what Col. Colt was charging.

K Singleton: Having fun for a minimal price it just what I'm looking for right now. Also having a weapon made (replicate) of a gun 100 years before I was born also has a drawl for me (born 1958). Thanks for sharing, hope to make up my mind on which manufacture to go with in the next few months. 

li fe: I know this video is old (I'm binge watching some h45 videos starting from the very first). That was a fun video. Definitely a pain in the butt to load, but interesting nonetheless. Thanks for sharing h45. 🔫 P e a c e 🔫

Granie w piłkę: It one of the few fun which is be left in Poland. Here not so easy to get permit for metallic cartridge amo gun especially firearm. Little more easy to hunting Gun But for this firearm - no permit - because it is black powder and this is replica from 19 Century. And it is even legal to carry this loaded on the street. But now modern gun for people. How stupid that is:)? Any way Hickok 45 - You are the most positive guy with the gun on You tube. "See how dirty that baby is now " :) Life is good and would be even more good if one visit on the shooting range with borrowed gun would not cost me 30 dollars ;p So, i think I will get this "dirty baby" :).

Antonio Montana: First time I'm seeing a gun that needs Astroglide or K-Y jelly lube to work. LOL

Olukold Meust: +hickok45 Hi. I am actually in the process of purchasing a black powder pistol and am having a hard time deciding which one to get.. What would you recommend? The .44 or the .36? The sheriff version or the standard version? Which year? 1851, 1858 or 1860? Is there a difference in regards to the year aside from the look? I have the possibility to purchase 2 depending on the price. Also which manufacturer would you recommend? I plan on doing a conversion in the near future for normal modern smokeless cartridges. Thanks for the advice. 

Thomas Forster: Hello, I'd like to ask which would be better to buy for a first time gun owner, the colt navy or the Remington 1858. Honestly I can't choose. Both look so good.

Paul GR: I recently purchased an 1858, and I bought some pyrodex P fffg propellant. Just out of curiosity, would this be proper/safe to use to fire blanks and lead balls? I'm a reenactor so I wanna know if I can shoot this stuff in public. I'm not able to get actual black powder immediately, so I'm endeavoring to use this stuff. Thanks! 

Hagop Zakaryan: did the Remington 1858 new army 5 inch barrel and 8 inch both see service during the civil war?

todd williamson: Great video.... he does a very good job explaining

stearling estes: the '58 takes a number 10 cap and i use bees wax to top off my cylinders after loading.

jdzencelowcz: +hickok45 sir, I do believe U would give the original Hickok a run for his money! (thumbs up)

jmiles1960: Great video! My father gave me a Remington 1858 reproduction pistol. I am looking forward to firing it. Thanks for the tutorial.

AznMunkay: Can you do quick reloads by changing the cylinder to another fully loaded one?

Nick Nickerson: Good video! Glad to see your not using reduced smokeless powder loads like the last I guy I saw on this range did with a 1858 with the cartridge conversion never use smokeless powder in black powder guns only pyrodex and black powder.

Aaron Keith: Shame on you! not wearing your ears 

Alan High: Was your 1858 manufactured by Pietta or Uberti? I once owned a Pietta, and have a Uberti on order from Taylor's and Company. I've heard that the Uberti is closer dimensionally to the original.

William Ebertz: It's a pain to load, but it sure makes an authoritative sound.

PhilGz: Excellent video :-) Phil

jermster17: Imagine having to reload that pistol during a battle in the American Civil War.

Alan Schulte: Can you get replicas of Whitney revolvers?

Gerald E: "Shoots as fast as lightning but it loads a might slow" 

Lonnie Jones: Best video I've seen yet discussing and displaying this particular firearm. Well done.

robert luther: Are you going to do a segment on the cleaning of the Remington after shooting,how far do you take it down.

cfolman: The cause of chainfire is an eternal topic of discussion. I had a chainfire once - with tight fitting .454 balls and lots of grease on top - which leads me to believe that under certain circumstances the fire can get "sucked in" from behind, through the nipples. Cant say for sure, though. My chainfire emptied the top 3 chambers - nothing spectacular happned and the gun shot fine afterwards. Dont know what would have happened if it had been the bottom 3 chambers - but I suspect the same.

budrukus: I had one of these about 25 years ago while living in Louisiana. I always greased the cylinder rod and used a lubed wad and never had any problem. For anyone wondering you either need to buy a special solvent or use boiling water to clean this type pf firearm. Also remove the grips and clean the mainspring. I use to take this all over the swamps with me.

Zardoch: Great video by the way:-)

AVerylargePotatoOnATrainWithAManOnTop coley: Hi

Jay Dee: Finally got to shoot mine. Sounds much more like a cannon than modern handguns and stunningly accurate, even when compared to my 1911's. I took the Crisco route...once. Never again. Wonderlube or patches from here on out. Either way, still messy, but a lot of fun. So much fun, I'm picking up an 1860 Colt in a few days. I still think the 1858 Remy is the best looking of the bunch though.

Mike R: Those 1858 44 New Army wheel guns are so fun to shoot. I built a brass frame CVA kit back in the 1980's and so far have 30 plus years of shooting it. Only broke a sear and replaced that. Fun gun, can't fit enough powder in it to hurt it. Guess it's like a Ruger Redhawk where any load that fits in the cylinder can't break it ;)

Alicia Campbell: I want to purchase a conversion cylinder for my new 1858 Uberti new army. Which would you recommend for cylinder strength? Fluted or non fluted cylinder conversion.

moneyhungryyt: Aww sexy beast that is

Quang Lê: ya, i agree it's a piece of history, a soldier at that time came to the battle field with one single firearm and combat knives, machetes or axes. That is exactly what we need to respect

BFerry10: Hickok looks a little like LBJ without his mustache

Ram2k12: Love the smell of burnt f??g??? powder. Thanks much for the video

Marley Marl: I learn so much from watching your videos. thanks for these

neighbour666: Out of ammo? Empty cylinder? With a spare cylinder or two you're good to go, seeing as, with a bit of practice, it takes less than 10 seconds to replace an MT with a ready prepared one: capped, powdered, balled and greased. I've got it down to 7 seconds on my 1858 Pietta , but there's some guy on here who does it in under six. I have to admit, however, that mine's a replica, though an exact one and was made a bit more recently that Hickok's, plus I was changing clean, though I think that using it in a situation where it may - uh, really, really matter may positively affect adrenalin/strength/pronto quotient! Not exactly like punching in a loaded mag in an semi-auto, but hey, what's there not to like? Speed-loader anyone? And excuse me? Putting the grease BEHIND the balls? Duh - we'll have to agree to differ on that call! But you were being ironic then I take that back...

Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out someday....

bunkysdad: the beauty is in the function. well said. nice video.

678friedbed: I love my BP pistol I use 1075 primers they stay on better. I think I have the same one. 

Chris Phipps: actually the Remington was actually cheaper colt got greedy and started charging somewhere around 25$ a gun Remington offered to sell his model and even manufacture colt's gun for somewhere around 13$ forcing colt to dramatically lower his prices.

Mike Little: A better revolver than any Colt of the period for sure, but the Colt Navy is by a long way the prettiest. Great reviews, keep it up.

pkj77: niiiice, oh no earplugs shooting the first time ouch

Debar Mountain: I had one of these back in the 70's. I didn't know about the grease and it chain fired every time I shot it. I later used Crisco and it worked fine but what a mess. 

Reeve Swan: Uberti new model with the factory metallic conversion are better for the guys who doesnt now alot about black powder but what a western era pistol in .45 long colt they are a hoot

ruby kaufman: Long live the Black Powder Tradition. I own the Ubirty 1858 (Black Rock model) I Have plenty of modern firearms but these have a charm all there own and if not for them we would not have 1911's or Glock's, Needless to say i love all firearms equally as much, just bought a Mosin and it's a cool old gun especially for the money! Hickok45 keeps me coming back for more - Great job as always, Thanks Hickok45.

Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and Remington's ,, 

Admiral Rusty Schackleford: The Colt 1851 was the most common Civil war pistol.
