Fluted Cylinder 1858 Army
« on: April 17, 2012, 05:31:21 PM »
I picked up a 1858 Army with a fluted cylinder yesterday. It was made by Pietta in 1996. The gun is in pretty good shape but has a little bit of pitting on the cylinder. The cylinder has been turned but it shows no sign of having been fired.  Under the loading lever on the barrel it is very lightly stamped 3869. I have no idea what this means.

I have not seen a Remington like this before or heard of one.

I am not crazy about Remingtons but I do like cap and ball revolvers. Since I do not have a 58 with fluted cylinder, I bought it.
