A good price for an 1860 with extra cylinder
« on: September 28, 2015, 10:01:52 AM »
Hi, this is a good price for a steel framed 1860 with extra cylinder, see:
http://www.cabelas.com/product/pietta-1860-army-44-caliber-black-powder-revolver-with-spare-cylinder/1776981.uts

There is also low cost shipping for $5.

Right, just one is not acceptable,  but I already have two.

Hi Mike, so did I already have two 1860s. I also have seven 1858s, but always a sucker for a good sale price to add more.  (@+ (@+ (@+ (@+

Hi, on further reflection I think I will give this new Pietta 1860 revolver to my son-in-law for Christmas 2016. I already have a new Pietta 1851 revolver for him this Christmas. Last Christmas I gave him a new 5.5" 1858 that has him so juiced that he comes out to shoot whenever he can get a free weekend. My son-in-law is now a BP fanatic. While he is so excited about BP shooting, I'm even more pleased with having a close family member to share my shooting hobby. When drying his cleaned 1858 parts in the oven, we both sing, "There's nothing more loving that a revolver in the oven and Pietta does it best!"  (7& (7& (7&

Hi, I received the new Pietta 1860 revolver with extra cylinder today. As most of the Pietta's purchased recently, this new 1860 is perfect.

I found it interesting that the extra cylinder that came with the revolver had proof marks, extra cylinders purchased separately don't have proof marks.

Richard

Hi, one other thing to note about new Pietta revolvers is that the nipples come out of the cylinders easily. Pietta must have canned their previous nipple installer that used a 100ft-lb torque wrench to install nipples, Brunhilda.   ;D ;D

Hi, I see Cabelas just raised the price for this 1860 revolver from the sale price of $200 to the original price of $330.

Yes, I noticed that a day or two ago.  The price of the Pietta 1851 "Yank" .36 caliber revolver is still $200, though.  What distinguishes the "Yank" model from the non-"Yank" model, or is there such a thing as a Non-Yank model?

If you look on Dixie Gun Works site, the 1851 Yank has a squareback trigger guard. The non-Yank model is the London with the round trigger guard.

I have no idea about Cabela's advertising, however I hope they put the Griswold and Gunnison brasser on sale during the holidays because I REALLY want that barrel!

Hi, last week Cabellas again offered their Pietta 1860 for $200 with free shipping. That good sales price was gone the day after. I just had to not let that sale go by and ordered one. The 1860 should arrive today. I already have 1860s coming out of my ears and wonder what to do with this one.

Now that I have nickel plating in hand, it may be interesting to do some nickel plating on the 1860. Maybe leave the color case hardened color on the frame and strip the bluing from the barrel, cylinder and backstrap? Then nickel plate those parts? I'm even thinking sending the revolver off for Titanium nitrading. Wonder what a gold colored 1860 would look like.

Regards,
Richard
