Did this video help you?

Hagop Zakaryan: did the Remington 1858 new army 5 inch barrel and 8 inch both see service during the civil war?

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.

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.

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.

Lonnie Jones: Best video I've seen yet discussing and displaying this particular firearm. Well done.

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 ;)

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.

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 .

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.

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

Gerald E: "Shoots as fast as lightning but it loads a might slow" 

Zardoch: Great video by the way:-)

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

Alan Schulte: Can you get replicas of Whitney revolvers?

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

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...

Ram2k12: Love the smell of burnt f??g??? powder. Thanks much for the video

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

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.

AVerylargePotatoOnATrainWithAManOnTop coley: Hi

bunkysdad: the beauty is in the function. well said. nice video.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

678friedbed: I love my BP pistol I use 1075 primers they stay on better. I think I have the same one. 

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

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.. 

Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out someday....

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

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 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

Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and Remington's ,, 

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.

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.

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

Paul Dogon: If it's an Uberti I would use a .457" ball, I get a better seal, and no chain fire

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

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.

Redneck Sniper: You need to get your hands on an SVT 40

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

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.

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.

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

whspioneer89: Life is very good
