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
jermster17: Imagine having to reload that pistol during a battle in the American Civil
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: The Colt 1851 was the most common Civil war pistol.
Austin Brown: Great video... I see why you need to be "in the mood"!!..
pkj77: niiiice, oh no earplugs shooting the first time ouch
Marley Marl: I learn so much from watching your videos. thanks for these
Admiral Rusty Schackleford: There are chain fire videos here on YouTube
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.
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.
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.
R.L. Um: I think I missed it, but who made the particular gun in the video?
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.
GUNSandTRIGGER: no wadding?
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.
Clancy Wharton: nipels
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
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..
Paul Dogon: If it's an Uberti I would use a .457" ball, I get a better seal, and no
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.
Pathfinder Woodsman: No doubt, beautiful firearm!
whspioneer89: Life is very good
Pugsgunsandstuff: Love my 1858 even if I cant shoot worth a damn with it. Ill figure it out
coyotesniper72: Thank you sir just picked one up. Probably going to fire it one time and be
a wall hanger after that.
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
Villy Vassell: The Remington was better than the Colts ,I have both Navy Colts and
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.
James L: It's like trying to load a flintlock pistol.... Six times.
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.
erin averyt: Hi just wanted to say I l love your videos :)
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
pinkiewerewolf: Another fun video!
I'd really like to get a pair of the Rugers... I'd like to see them in
MrSloika: Don't bother with the grease. Use Ox-Yoke Wonder Wads. The wads use dry
lube and no grease is required.
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.
Pyrus ThreeThreeFive: Hickok, ya look like Liam Neeson here....
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.
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
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.
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.
ricky ramirez: V
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
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
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
Phillip Peters: How about using a paper cartridge.
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
awakeTooOften: Great video! Beautiful gun.
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.
