Austin Brown: Great video... I see why you need to be "in the mood"!!..
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: There are chain fire videos here on YouTube
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
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: The Colt 1851 was the most common Civil war pistol.
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.
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
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..
awakeTooOften: Great video! Beautiful gun.
Wahoochi Moomba: Thats a CVA powder measure Cole
erin averyt: Hi just wanted to say I l love your videos :)
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.
R.L. Um: I think I missed it, but who made the particular gun in the video?
James L: It's like trying to load a flintlock pistol.... Six times.
pinkiewerewolf: Another fun video!
I'd really like to get a pair of the Rugers... I'd like to see them in
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
Eric Jennings: with a loading stand, and a capper, the process is almost twice as easy...I
shoot my PB revolvers about 6 times a year..good way to spend a day
shooting for very little money. They are really accurate considering the
not so controlled loading specs and a round lead ball....cleaning them
takes about an hour if you do it right. However, after a day of shooting
them, and then an hour to clean each gun, it will give you an even greater
appreciation for your modern handguns..I think everyone should at least try
them once, just so they can get a first hand experience of how handguns
have progressed over time..
dahondaguy: , i have a navy .44 but i bought the 58 army because they are far more
accurate than the open framed navy revolver. and much easier to change
77cohete: these are legal in the uk (with a class 1 firearms certificate) couple of
people in my local club fire them. maybe i can join them in a few months.
CapnSchep: BIG OLE GUN...!! ;D
smartacus88: Not only my favorite revolver, my favorite handgun... Period.
CPHannigan: Lube also helps reduce the chance of chain fire.
Benny Cheung: Hello, hickok. I'm a big fan of yours and can you please make a H&K video
which is all about guns that are made by H&K? PS: Personally, I really
wanna see G36 :)
Munky332: I just started lookin at BP and muzzle loaders for craps and giggles. but
with the "advancements" for rifles, im surprised noones come up with more
modern day versions of these. or better yet, double action or lever action
revolving carbines/rifles where you can just swap the cylinders out...
omar doshka: you are lucky there is no mexican banditos or red indian around
rednecman19: you can get one at taylors and company for quite a bit. The website is
probably a little more expensive than at a store that deals with them. But
they would be fun. The originals came with a 20 gauge center barrel. Would
be freakin awesome.
Fred Herzog: Is that the Pietta Model?
AJNapierski: good video but, the best way to shoot an 1858 is to use the bore buttons
(pre-lubed wads) and to take the cylinder out and use a loading stand so
you don't have to fumble around with the gun while loading, besides that it
shortens reload time significantly and you can load up during cease fire
because you aren't handling your gun.
shadowalker1776: They are fun to shoot. I have both the 1858 Army and Navy and I like my
Navy model better. No special reason just do.
John McFerren: For example in Pennsylvania it is legal for a felon to own and shoot one of
these. The only time firearms laws become involved is carrying them
concealed, in a vehicle, some declared emergencies, or in Philly. In those
cases a carry license is required and you have to pass a PICS (PA's NICS)
check to get one.
Shane Burlingham: love your videos can you help m,e find a cylinder for an ammi san marco
John McFerren: Isn't that excessive? I'm no expert, but I think the charge would last
longer than a day. My problem would be unloading it as I can't shoot in
town ($100 fine) and you don't want to carry a loaded gun onto a public
John McFerren: Actually the lubed wads or the lube on the cylinder keep the fouling soft
making cleanup easier. If no lube was used the fouling would get hard and
more difficult to clean.
John McFerren: This varies by state law. Under federal law this is classified as an
antique firearm and is NOT regulated. Federal gun control specifically
exempts these guns including the modern repros.
John McFerren: I would be concerned due to the exposed caps and I think a percussion cap
may be easier to set off than a metallic cartridge. My perception, would
love to see some facts on this other than historical data as Civil war
soldiers did things with their rifles (cap then load) that we wouldn't
imagine doing today.
Nox Aternum: Oh right, good to know, thanks.
Sir Catfish: Any chance of a video on Wild Bill's Navy Colt?
Sir Catfish: Any chance of a video on Wild Bill's Navy Colt?
phonefunk: Fantastic Vido. Thanks man. I want to get me a 58 Navy. I'll buy yours if
it's for sale. There's one at Martin Reddings in L.A.
DFX2KX: Yeah, that was a concern I had. Up until recently it wasn't an issue,
because I didn't leave it loaded. (had some issues with both cylinders
having stuck nipples, didn't want to load the gun before I knew I could
UNLOAD it.) This then begs the question: I could just replace the powder
and leave the bullets themselves alone (ie: by unscrewing the nipples) but
that strikes me as possible unsafe. Is it better to remove the balls, too,
and re-ram everything?
Hiraghm: wait... $40 for a conversion cylinder? Everyplace I look for a conversion
cylinder for an 1858 wanted over $200.
Austinatorgnarly: Actually, he was correct. No hearing protection on the first six he shot.
And you are correct, he wore his plugs on the second round of shooting.
anon01111: Ideally? No. But if it's all I had, and I loaded it myself with no lubed
wads. good quality powder and caps I'm sure it would get the job done. C&B
revolvers were the only game in town for a long time, and they got the job
krazor8: my god i love old gun like this, now if only i could afford 1
theoriginalOSOK: Use the wonder wads and Pyrodex P and it won't dirty up so quick :)
HawkenConstnt: Lol yes! :)
RICHY MARK NORMAN: Mr Hickok ...that was super cool,especially since i live in sydney
australia and we are not even allowed BB guns here.Actually if it looks
like a real gun,even if is plastic and didn't work,the penalty for having
one is still the same.....
Michael Rudnicki: You dont need a permit to carry these they are not firearms. And Convicted
felons can use these for protection.
Dakota Norman: It was actually less expensive. They were colt's biggest competitor. An
1860 army went for $21, whereas a'58 went for 13-16 (depending on the
trouble the peddler went through to get them.)
chapiit08: The extra cylinder thing is a Hollywood fallacy as seen in the Pale Rider
movie but in real life it would have been not very safe as it is like
carrying a primed hand grenade in your pocket. At least there is no record
of soldiers carrying extra cylinders but there is of cavalry carrying up to
four, two in the belt and the other two in pommel holsters; Mosby's Raiders
were so equipped and became the most feared battalion during the CW.
tfhenss: Well done. I hate guys who shot cap and ball in weaver stance :-)
