Zarathustra #9#9#9#9: doesn't have to be that messy. use some filler wad or loose filler (corn meal) over powder. this way the ball seats closer to chamber mouth, gets better accuracy. my euroarms nma lasts about 50 rnds. cyl pin and or quick wipe per 18 shots.
Szela512: where is semolina after black powder? I have been teached- Black powder, semolina, bullet, petrolatum
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.
todd williamson: Great video.... he does a very good job explaining
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.
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.
PhilGz: Excellent video :-) Phil
Mishawaka Post: Remington actually sold their revolvers for half what Col. Colt was charging.
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" :).
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.
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.

moneyhungryyt: Aww sexy beast that is
jdzencelowcz:+hickok45 sir, I do believe U would give the original Hickok a run for his money! (thumbs up)
Aaron Keith: Shame on you! not wearing your ears
stearling estes: the '58 takes a number 10 cap and i use bees wax to top off my cylinders after loading.
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.
jmiles1960: Great video! My father gave me a Remington 1858 reproduction pistol. I am looking forward to firing it. Thanks for the tutorial.
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.
robert luther: Are you going to do a segment on the cleaning of the Remington after shooting,how far do you take it down.
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.
