Hi, while Colts have issues, one very useful characteristic of the Colt's is the ability to easily remove the barrel from the revolver. The 1858 Remington is a different story. Barrel removal with simple tools can be difficult. Some use a 2x4 in the 1858 frame, but that risks deforming the frame. A better approach is to have tools that can get the job done. I had already purchased a big ass vise to hold the barrel of the 1858, but my current wrenches were too small for the barrel removal task. To that end of being able to either remove, or move an 1858 barrel for windage adjustment, I now have some real barrel removing tools:
When that wrench isn't being used for barrel removal, it may be helpful for watch repair?
