Did this video help you?

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.

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. 

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

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.

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.

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

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

Aaron Keith: Shame on you! not wearing your ears 

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.

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

Michael RedCrow: Heh- call me crazy, but the "mess" to me is part of the allure of owning and shooting these type guns.I really don't mind it at all .

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.

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.

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

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

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

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 ;)

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

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

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

Zardoch: Great video by the way:-)

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

Alan Schulte: Can you get replicas of Whitney revolvers?

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

BFerry10: Hickok looks a little like LBJ without his mustache

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...

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

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.

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

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

jonas0937: Hi, for those who talk about chain fires : As long as you use the right caliber (slightly oversized) for your bullets, that allows a snug fit when loaded, it won't happen by the front of the cylinder, whether your put grease before or after the bullet (if before, we are talking about hard grease cookies). With right bullets, chainfires happen by the nipples, because of loose caps, fire from ignition of the current shoot can then travel through the next capless nipple. And so on.

AVerylargePotatoOnATrainWithAManOnTop coley: Hi

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.

MrSloika: Don't bother with the grease. Use Ox-Yoke Wonder Wads. The wads use dry lube and no grease is required.

wholeNwon: You only had to cover 5 of the chambers with grease. Perhaps others mentioned this but I haven't read through all of the comments.

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

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.

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

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

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

Carbide Jones: Try cigarette paper cartridges, dip the bullet end in whatever kind of grease if you are worried about chainfires. I had one in thirty years

ekajeht: If you use the right size ball you do not need the lube. The org. cap ball revolvers manufactures never mentioned lube when loading. To prevent chain fires NEVER FIRE THE REVOLVER WITH UN CAPPED NIPPLES WITH CHARGED CHAMBERS! Most chain fires are from the cross over flash on the back of the cylinder with either loose fitting caps or the absence of caps on a charged chamber.. 

Paul Gray: if you use #10 caps i have come to found out they stay on the nipple allot better i open carry my dragoon 3rd gen. the #11 tend to fall a lot more easy

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

Abraham Xiong: Hey this youtube shooting was made the same day as my birthday! And speak of the devil, I think im going to get me an airsoft version of this since I am an airsoft fan.

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. 

happyrv: If you use 777 powder "new style for BP" you dont get all gumed up like that. Why does anyone use that ancient black powder crap anymore. The NEW powder just washes off with warm water..super easy, and makes the gun way more fun to shoot. Great vid.I enjoyed it.

Austin Brown: Great video... I see why you need to be "in the mood"!!.. 

Paul Dogon: If it's an Uberti I would use a .457" ball, I get a better seal, and no chain fire

dan marva: i saw a dragoon video where the revolver was shooting and was noicer but this remington is noicer too.

tomatodamashi: I'm starting to gradually dislike Jim's reviews more and more. They were once humourous looks at games and gave them a fair shake, he now gives games zero amount of effort or patience. He sets up the games to fail. He doesn't even bother to find out what the controls are, or get them set up prior to recording, and then gets frustrated when they are not the most user friendly. If you aren't going to bother giving a game a modicum of preparation, the frustration he feels is mostly because of him. Not every game holds your hands through the controls. Some of the best games I ever played required a lot of tweaking the controls, or even playing around them. It can be argued that this is the fault of the game designers, but we should give them a fair shake. He knew this was a driving simulator, but because he is so determined to to use WASD instead of the arrow keys, he immediately shuts down in frustration and downright refuses to use any of the the controls. This shows a childish attitude, and is not very entertaining to watch.
