Remington 1858 carbine
« on: March 17, 2016, 07:52:11 AM »
Hi, this is my modified 1858 Remington carbine. It is an Uberti that was modified to use Pietta 1858 cylinders. It also has the Howell cylinder quick release device. I use this carbine mostly with .45 Colt conversion cylinders to eliminate cap parts in the face when shooting:

That's the one thing that's kept me away from one of those...cap frags.
