AznMunkay: Can you do quick reloads by changing the cylinder to another fully loaded
William Ebertz: It's a pain to load, but it sure makes an authoritative sound.
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.
Lonnie Jones: Best video I've seen yet discussing and displaying this particular firearm.
jermster17: Imagine having to reload that pistol during a battle in the American Civil
Zardoch: Great video by the way:-)
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.
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 ;)
Alan Schulte: Can you get replicas of Whitney revolvers?
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
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
Debar Mountain Leather: 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.
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.
bunkysdad: the beauty is in the function. well said. nice video.
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 .
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.
Gerald E: "Shoots as fast as lightning but it loads a might slow"
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
Clancy Wharton: nipels
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: The Colt 1851 was the most common Civil war pistol.
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
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.
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
Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and
pkj77: niiiice, oh no earplugs shooting the first time ouch
Redneck Sniper: You need to get your hands on an SVT 40
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.
albert costello: I have fired a 1858 with the cylinder conversion that allows the black
powder to fire 45 cal cartridge ammo , works very well
dan marva: i saw a dragoon video where the revolver was shooting and was noicer but
this remington is noicer too.
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
678friedbed: I love my BP pistol I use 1075 primers they stay on better. I think I have
the same one.
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.
Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out
GUNSandTRIGGER: no wadding?
Marley Marl: I learn so much from watching your videos. thanks for these
badger305: This old Remington might be a pain in the butt to load and clean, but it
ain't no slouch when it comes to accuracy and bullet speed. At the range of
that gong you were shooting, I'd rather someone shoot at me with a glock
than this old cap and ball.
Paul Dogon: If it's an Uberti I would use a .457" ball, I get a better seal, and no
Austin Brown: Great video... I see why you need to be "in the mood"!!..
CurryInd: Ironically he made a video awhile after this where he ran black powder
cartridges in a glock, go figure.
LeKa 槌: Clint Eastwood had one of these in Pale Rider, although (according to
Internet Movie Firearms Database) it was converted to use cartridges. He
also used pre-loaded cylinders.
Ripper train: sorry to correct you but you came out with a glock shooting black powder, I
guess if you were a time traveler you would understand.
Phillip Peters: How about using a paper cartridge.
whspioneer89: Life is very good
Pete Flynn: Yes - these are great pistols. I've got a 58 and a Ruger Old Army. It's
just too expensive to shoot centerfire now - assuming you can even find
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.
MrSloika: Cartridge conversion cylinders are made for these guns that will allow you
fire .45LC smokeless loads. You can fire smokeless all day without the
Pyrus ThreeThreeFive: Hickok, ya look like Liam Neeson here....
Pathfinder Woodsman: No doubt, beautiful firearm!
