1875 Era Rig
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:39:25 PM »
My words won't do this piece justice. I will say that I have not been this stoked for some time. No piece, or gun, that I have received in many years has come close to bringing the joy that this has. I came close to tears when I opened the box today. It was a total pleasure. Mike, they broke the mould when you were cast. You are one of a kind my fine friend.

Ah Kirk, I have never had no problem with a Remington. They fall into history just like the rest. I have 3 percussion copies and this conversion. But I do not have a brass framed version, nor one with target sights. And the carbine version that I have is a fine and accurate example. But me being me, I will take a Colt any day over a Remington. A Remington is what it is, no better, but no worse than a Colt. And of course, a history nut will own all of them!!!! regardless of the maker.

That is awesomous. That's a nice period rig and the converted Remington ain't bad either.
