Did this video help you?

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 better.

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

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

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.

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

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. 

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.

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.. 

whspioneer89: Life is very good

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

Pathfinder Woodsman: No doubt, beautiful firearm!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Phillip Peters: How about using a paper cartridge.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

ricky ramirez: V 

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.

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.

GUNSandTRIGGER: no wadding?

Paul Gray: if you use #10 caps i have come to found out they stay on the nipple allot better i open carry my dragoon 3rd gen. the #11 tend to fall a lot more easy

jonas0937: Hi, for those who talk about chain fires : As long as you use the right caliber (slightly oversized) for your bullets, that allows a snug fit when loaded, it won't happen by the front of the cylinder, whether your put grease before or after the bullet (if before, we are talking about hard grease cookies). With right bullets, chainfires happen by the nipples, because of loose caps, fire from ignition of the current shoot can then travel through the next capless nipple. And so on.

awakeTooOften: Great video! Beautiful gun.

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 preloaded cylinders

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.

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

Pyrus ThreeThreeFive: Hey, nice holster. Great hint. *wink wink, nudge nudge, know what I mean?*

TheGapeMan1: love all your vids, much easier to watch than anyone else. can you get a vid up on the polish akms ak47 underfolder?

Trum4n1208: hickok, if you don't want that Remington, I'd be willing to take the hit and take it off your hands, just saying

bug cat: where can I buy #10 percussion caps ? no one hear has them. 

Peets104: Here in New York, (the unconstitutional state) you can buy these without an FFL or background check IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO FIRE IT....... All of the materials (balls/patches/powder) are easily accessible and will ship right to your door, but if you intend to fire it, you need to register it, and put the firearm on you NYS Pistol Permit. This state is weird... 

Kenneth Cotton: i enjoyed the video i learned more from your 1 video then the other 12 videos i watched just wanted to say thank you for your knowledge

415866: I disagree, its difficult initially........then becomes easier. All babies are made to breastfeed but people make the decision for them not to breastfeed, if its uncomfortable then the position is not right. Breastfeeding is best, easy, cost effective.
AceQne: yo yo yo
krishna kumar: Awesome
Kay Hudasch: love the GL1800 - no doubt - traded mine in 9 weeks ago for a Spyder RT-SE5 and set my luxirious and comfort expectations the same level ... GL is awesome - RT is absolutely equal in comfort and luxus - the only 3 differences 2 wheels vs 3, 1.8L vs 1L engine and milage reach - GL is better than RT ... more miles out of a tank of gas ... 250 miles vs 150 miles ... or 44GPM whith a 6flat vs 28GPM with a V-twin. everything else awesome and breath-taking on both vehicles ...
Ed Daves: great video, thanx
MultiSmash1234: That's the whole Saw theme!
