"Pietta Model 1858 New Army Brass Frame .44 Caliber Black Powder Revolver
Due to a lack of raw materials in the mid-1800s, the South was forced to reproduce the famous 1858 Remington® revolver out of brass. The Pietta Model 1858 New Army Brass Frame .44 Caliber single-action Black Powder Revolver celebrates the classic look and handling. Features include a brass frame and finger guard, blued cylinder, octagonal barrel and walnut grips. Easily removable, replaceable cylinders make reloading extremely fast.
Barrel length: 8”.
Wt: 2 lbs., 12 oz."
Nowhere have I ever seen in either pictorial reference, text, or seen in any collection or museum, an "original" Confederate brass Remington. Colt-style revolvers; yes. (G&G, S&G, S&B, etc) It's always been one of the famous Pietta 'Fantasy Guns', we all know that. But to actually represent it as historically correct? Bad form, Peter.
Does anyone have any sort of reference to show this is correct, or is this just another case of Pietta/Cabela's changing history to up their sales to unsuspecting newbies on the scene?
