Did this video help you?

AznMunkay: Can you do quick reloads by changing the cylinder to another fully loaded one?

William Ebertz: It's a pain to load, but it sure makes an authoritative sound.

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

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 work. LOL

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 .

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 cylinder conversion.

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 that back...

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.

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 someday....

GUNSandTRIGGER: no wadding?

115Josh: redneck

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

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 Remington's ,, 

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

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.

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.

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

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

dan marva: i saw a dragoon video where the revolver was shooting and was noicer but this remington is noicer too.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Pathfinder Woodsman: No doubt, beautiful firearm!

ricky ramirez: V 

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

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.

x2malandy: I had #11 caps which were loose, so I would pinch them so they would be tighter. I had a chain fire while shooting into a lake and the lake had splashs all over it. I sure am glad someone engineered places for the balls to get out of there so it would not blow up. Looking for some #10 caps now.
