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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out
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
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
Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and
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
dan marva: i saw a dragoon video where the revolver was shooting and was noicer but
this remington is noicer too.
