I wasn't kidding about the tiny part. I be looking for more though.
Both Lyman imported Uberti 1858 Remington New Army 44s. One made in 1971 and the other in 1972.

Those are nice, did you strip the lower revolver?

I'm wanting one of SG's Santa Barbra Remies with the engraving.  I've got two Pietta's, a shooters and target model.  One Buffalo pinto by ASM?? and a unknown nickle plated steel frame 1858, possibly FIE??

Thanks, MCB,  I have a  paltry showing compared to just about everyone else on the forums, but I am proud of them.
The bottom one was stripped with vinegar. At some point years ago,, before I owned there was a hard blow to the top strap, that left a slight indentation which had an oxidation over it. I just drove me crazy, so I ended up making it more noticeable than before, so I stripped it. I found that I liked it better that way. In the current pic, it is finished with light coats of naval jelly. I am thinking of sanding and defarbing it and leaving it to turn naturally.
I almost forgot about SG's Santa's. They are the ultimate Remmies. There was one on GB, a while back. The reserve wasn't met twice, don't know if was ever relisted. The top bid was nearly $300. It had the same engravings as SG's. I wish I could have bought it, it was in excellent shape like SG's.
I am looking for my first Colt, but want a steel frame so i can shoot standard loads. Hopefully, when an affordable one comes along, my funds will be right. It doesn't really matter which model, I like them all.

Thanks, Jimbo453
I have never had a Colt. I definitely think the Remmies are easier to master. I have these babies mastered, I think it would have taken me longer to master the Colt, but I am up for the challenge,  with  my Remmies  handy if i need them for defense. No matter how many Colts I accumulate, I will still prefer a 1861 Remmy, that I am certain. Another rev I want is a ROA, but I would still prefer the 1861 Remmy since the ROA doesn't have the safety notches between the nipples for the hammer to rest on while carrying.  I prefer them over the modern firearms also, without conversions; I have no intention of converting them to centerfire ammo..
I have one or both within inches of me just about all of the time. Yea, I have a bad case of Remmy fever and I ain't looking for a cure.

Cool, my mistake. I think that an ROA would be a fine addition to my arsenal.

ROA's are rather expensive and they are getting hard to find. Didn't they quit making them??

Both my ROA's, stainless and blue have the safety notches between chambers, just like the Remingtons.  When I look at a ROA I see a Remington frame/cylinder and barrel with a colt grip frame.

Ruger produced a few ROA's last year from spare parts and Davis released them, $$$.  Every now and then I see a blued ROA sell for 250-300, not bad on today's market.  You can find stainless ROA's with a lot of surface scratches that sell pretty cheap.  A cotton wheel on a 8inch grinder well make it look new with a little work.  That's how I got mine at a affordable price.

I assumed the Ruger Old Army followed the tradition of 1858 Remington Old Army which if I am not mistaken did not have the cylinder safety notches. An acquaintance of mine despises the ROA because it is not historically correct, I could not care less about anything other than ruggedness and performance. Considering the illumination on my erroneous assumptions, my first choice for a third rev is definitely a ROA. I will be watching the auctions for one.
I appreciate you guys straightening me out on this one. Anytime I post or publish anything that is less than factual, please correct me.

AZYogi, anytime you want your money back out of it, let me know. Though it is probably well used by now, I am sure  scare up the funds.  Grin Grin Grin
