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.
Mishawaka Post: Remington actually sold their revolvers for half what Col. Colt was
K Singleton: Having fun for a minimal price it just what I'm looking for right now.
Also having a weapon made (replicate) of a gun 100 years before I was born
also has a drawl for me (born 1958). Thanks for sharing, hope to make up
my mind on which manufacture to go with in the next few months.
li fe: I know this video is old (I'm binge watching some h45 videos starting from
the very first).
That was a fun video. Definitely a pain in the butt to load, but
interesting nonetheless. Thanks for sharing h45.

Granie w piłkę: It one of the few fun which is be left in Poland. Here not so easy to get
permit for metallic cartridge amo gun especially firearm. Little more easy
to hunting Gun But for this firearm - no permit - because it is black
powder and this is replica from 19 Century. And it is even legal to carry
this loaded on the street. But now modern gun for people. How stupid that
Any way Hickok 45 - You are the most positive guy with the gun on You tube.
"See how dirty that baby is now " :) Life is good and would be even more
good if one visit on the shooting range with borrowed gun would not cost me
30 dollars ;p So, i think I will get this "dirty baby" :).
Antonio Montana: First time I'm seeing a gun that needs Astroglide or K-Y jelly lube to
Olukold Meust: +hickok45 Hi. I am actually in the process of purchasing a black powder
pistol and am having a hard time deciding which one to get.. What would you
recommend? The .44 or the .36? The sheriff version or the standard version?
Which year? 1851, 1858 or 1860? Is there a difference in regards to the
year aside from the look? I have the possibility to purchase 2 depending on
Also which manufacturer would you recommend?
I plan on doing a conversion in the near future for normal modern smokeless
Thanks for the advice.
Thomas Forster: Hello, I'd like to ask which would be better to buy for a first time gun
owner, the colt navy or the Remington 1858. Honestly I can't choose. Both
look so good.
Paul GR: I recently purchased an 1858, and I bought some pyrodex P fffg propellant.
Just out of curiosity, would this be proper/safe to use to fire blanks and
lead balls? I'm a reenactor so I wanna know if I can shoot this stuff in
public. I'm not able to get actual black powder immediately, so I'm
endeavoring to use this stuff.
Hagop Zakaryan: did the Remington 1858 new army 5 inch barrel and 8 inch both see service
during the civil war?
todd williamson: Great video.... he does a very good job explaining
stearling estes: the '58 takes a number 10 cap and i use bees wax to top off my cylinders
jdzencelowcz: +hickok45 sir, I do believe U would give the original Hickok a run for his
money! (thumbs up)
jmiles1960: Great video! My father gave me a Remington 1858 reproduction pistol. I am
looking forward to firing it. Thanks for the tutorial.
AznMunkay: Can you do quick reloads by changing the cylinder to another fully loaded
Nick Nickerson: Good video! Glad to see your not using reduced smokeless powder loads like
the last I guy I saw on this range did with a 1858 with the cartridge
conversion never use smokeless powder in black powder guns only pyrodex
and black powder.
Aaron Keith: Shame on you! not wearing your ears
Alan High: Was your 1858 manufactured by Pietta or Uberti? I once owned a Pietta, and
have a Uberti on order from Taylor's and Company. I've heard that the
Uberti is closer dimensionally to the original.
William Ebertz: It's a pain to load, but it sure makes an authoritative sound.
PhilGz: Excellent video :-) Phil
jermster17: Imagine having to reload that pistol during a battle in the American Civil
Alan Schulte: Can you get replicas of Whitney revolvers?
Gerald E: "Shoots as fast as lightning but it loads a might slow"
Lonnie Jones: Best video I've seen yet discussing and displaying this particular firearm.
robert luther: Are you going to do a segment on the cleaning of the Remington after
shooting,how far do you take it down.
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.
budrukus: I had one of these about 25 years ago while living in Louisiana. I always
greased the cylinder rod and used a lubed wad and never had any problem.
For anyone wondering you either need to buy a special solvent or use
boiling water to clean this type pf firearm. Also remove the grips and
clean the mainspring. I use to take this all over the swamps with me.
Zardoch: Great video by the way:-)
AVerylargePotatoOnATrainWithAManOnTop coley: Hi
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.
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 ;)
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
moneyhungryyt: Aww sexy beast that is
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
BFerry10: Hickok looks a little like LBJ without his mustache
Ram2k12: Love the smell of burnt f??g??? powder. Thanks much for the video
Marley Marl: I learn so much from watching your videos. thanks for these
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
Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out
bunkysdad: the beauty is in the function. well said. nice video.
678friedbed: I love my BP pistol I use 1075 primers they stay on better. I think I have
the same one.
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.
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.
pkj77: niiiice, oh no earplugs shooting the first time ouch
Debar Mountain: 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.
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
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.
Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: The Colt 1851 was the most common Civil war pistol.
Clancy Wharton: nipels
