Did this video help you?

Norm Vigas: Don't put grease in frot of the balls, it's what causes chain fire, put the grease behind the balls when you load, keep the from clean and dry, far better.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Admiral Rusty Schackleford: There are chain fire videos here on YouTube 

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.

waitew: The Government would be crazy to go after these. The difficulty of useing them combined their limited number of shots & the fact that they are nearly NEVER used in crime would play right into the hands of the progunners & their claim that Government want to ban ALL firearms.

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. 

R.L. Um: I think I missed it, but who made the particular gun in the video? Traditions? Pietta?

Charles Frazier: I wonder if the Civil War soldiers thought the 1858 Remington was a cool gun.

GUNSandTRIGGER: no wadding?

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.

jojorobino5312: This gun is not something you would want if you where fighting in a gang war lol. after 6 shots its out and now... for the reloading process.

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.

Wahoochi Moomba: Thats a CVA powder measure Cole

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

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.

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.

Pathfinder Woodsman: No doubt, beautiful firearm!

whspioneer89: Life is very good

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

coyotesniper72: Thank you sir just picked one up. Probably going to fire it one time and be a wall hanger after that.

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 ammunition.

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.

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

115Josh: redneck

Clancy Wharton: nipels

Redneck Sniper: You need to get your hands on an SVT 40

CurryInd: Ironically he made a video awhile after this where he ran black powder cartridges in a glock, go figure.

James L: It's like trying to load a flintlock pistol.... Six times.

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.

erin averyt: Hi just wanted to say I l love your videos :)

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

pinkiewerewolf: Another fun video! I'd really like to get a pair of the Rugers... I'd like to see them in production again.

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

Pyrus ThreeThreeFive: Hickok, ya look like Liam Neeson here....

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.

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.

Cole Miller: Does anybody know the name of the 30 grain powder flask he was using, and where I could possibly find one? Thank you.

bobby wasabi: this is a really old video, but i might as well just say it anyways, you can buy conversion cylinders to fire 45 long colt out of the Remington, but it costs more then the replica gun itself does, lol last i looked they wanted like 300+ they even install a ramrod to eject the spent casings

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.

ricky ramirez: V 

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 mess.

Jay Dee: I've wanted one of these for years. I've only recently found this video and that's all it took. I bought a Remington 1858 just like it and can't wait to shoot it. Hickok, my goal is to duplicate your firearm collection. I figure I only have about 9999 left to go.

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 .
