River Styx Armory: my question, purely academic, is could one produce a duplex load (probably better in a Navy model) by simply seating 2 balls per chamber with possibly reduced power. I can't see any it would be an issue, but I am no expert on black powder weapons. my knowledge starts at smokeless, self-contained, center-fire.
legend 27: I prefer a Springfield rifle instead of those pistols, too long to reload
Bunk Stagner: I use system with Ballistol and water to clean and it takes about the same time when cleaning my revolvers (1860 Army) as cleaning a cartridge gun. Using wads rather than greasing the cylinders makes things a lot less messy
fujimi715: django unchained brought me here... wanted to see how these black powder revolvers work after seeing django killing everybody with them haha
Trent Willerton: Very good
TheGaming NorseMan: i can die happy hearing hickok45 say nipples lol
John Bacsenko: Never put yer ears on........
Denis Lamb: That cylinder myth has been busted. They never carried spare cylinders as it was too dangerous, the caps and powder could have ignited in combat.
pwnyou2295: I use Pyrodex in mine. Only one gun store in my town carries muzzleloading supplies. However, the fire department won't let them stock actual black powder.
Piotr Ścibor: I have a great experience with Pedersoli S.349 Remington Pattern replica. My record one time shooting was 240 shots in less than 4 hours with two cylinders (20 loads per cylinder). No glitches at all. Continuous and smooth operation of all mechanical parts all the time using home made grease and bullets. It is important to use good caps like RWS 1075 or even RWS 1075 plus with an extra charge. I had some problems with these standard in last hour of shooting as they had some problems to get the spark through the nipple to the powder but when changed to the stronger ones problem was fixed. One more important thing is to always remember to load wads or other spacer (I use semolina) between the powder and bullet to make the bullet as close to the exit of cylinder and entry to the barrel as possible (its easier with semolina porridge). I went from 24 to 18 and stopped at a tiny load of just 10 gains of 3F powder to get the best results like less than 5cm (2 inches) group size on the target at 25m (82ft).
Blue Sky Country: I own a Pietta 1858 New Model Army and I absolutely trust my life on that old warhorse. Never had a failure or FTF and the thing is powerful enough to kill a deer or a hog at 50 yards or more. Now a lot of people would think that he Uberti reproduction would be higher quality than a Pietta, but this seems to be the one gun that Pietta is determined to build right. If you intend to get an 1858 revolver, go with the Pietta. The frame on my gun is also massive, built like a truck, and I am sure it would function just as well as a war club or emergency glass breaker in the case I am ever in a situation that require one.
Sean P: Lee Van Cleef used this in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Such a beautiful looking gun!
Jeremy Knop: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I personally favor the appearance of the 1858 remington over any of the other civil war era revolvers. But that's just me.
Dejan Vasic: I really like the lever on that gun ...
Douglas MacCullagh: Hickom45, how far down does that 1858 have to be disassembled for cleaning? Does the frame and lock need to be opened up?
Cranky Yankee: Well they did have paper cartridges back in the day,cigarette (or was it Sigerette?) papers work well apparently ,and Job rolling papers were around back then,rolling your own ahead of time might remove a lot of the hassle at shooting time,would still have to grease 'em up though,you strike me as heap brave, wearing a light colored T shirt,and hat,and messing with the soot slinger!,although the range I shoot at was selling one brand of 357 for a while that after a cylinder full fired,my SP 101 was as black (well almost) as your Remington,they have since switched brands ,and no mess now. I have been researching paper cartridges ,and making them on line,and hope to try my hand at in spring,I have a sheriff model Remington,in stainless and love it,getting satisfyingly grubby in the process !
Patrick Maloney: enjoy this video thanks for the education.have you ever tried a flint lock pistol?
Francis Auld: Great. Messy thO.
Chris Strobel: I have a Cimarron 1858 and run it with the 45LC cartridge conversion cylinders you can get at Taylors & Co. I personally think the 58's are beautiful guns aesthetic wise.
Joe Mummerth: greased felt wads were used by shooters as long as there have been revolvers , cleaner , easier to use , and just as reliable as grease over the ball ! elmer keith was taught to use them by old civil war vets when he was a kid !

Eli I deed it: Borg Warner Jamie thought you know about motors? Jeremey Manuelpillai: I really hope they do something Lotusdriver: I just got hold of one of these. It's boxed and looks new. But does not work. Although the motor runs it does not go through the operations. I assume any parts needed to repair will have to be made? It's a fabulous toy. I had one as a kid. Cool Vid: bose is nicer than jbl cause i have both of them Îñuÿåshà Shíñá: i like ur dance is cool & amaizng ... good job jenjerx: I'm here fro the 4th season! DOIT
