Remingtons / Re: I'm calling BS on Pietta/Cabela's!
« Last post by Hewy on September 20, 2017, 08:12:28 PM »
I gotta bring this forward. Pietta has its own view of the C&B revolvers there is no getting around it.
Uberti seemed to have had the corner on more adherance to original designs and quality. Pietta not so much.
The last maybe 4 years thanks to CNC machines quality is much better.
It is a report....period.
I have been around motorcycles and trucks for years, for some reason some , oh I know not all, can't get it right.
Screws in wrong place, tolerances ha what's that not to leave out the material  made from.......rubber not rubber
some kinda of stinky plastic.
Low price mass production .Get China to throw it together. Almost better to spend time and money to find "unobtainium"
But we keep buying don't we........ ??? Cuzz it's cheap.

Remingtons / 1858 Remington conversion ?
« Last post by Hewy on September 20, 2017, 07:58:43 PM »
When was the first metallic cartridge 1858 made ? Was it Remington or a outside gunsmith ?
From what I see from old photos, the rear of bored through cylider was a small thin plate , and a cartridge loading cutout
in the recoil sheild. Could the plate be  closed  in order not to prematurely eject cartridges that were not fired? or even fired
cases for that matter.

Over here some people seem to think that 2nd Generation are just as valuable as 1st. It's no wonder they don't sell. Some others will ask decent prices and will sell. No uprise seen in recent times anyway.
Ringo, I think by they time they reach you over there, they've already been inflated as much as the market will allow.

Colt made some of the Springfield 1861 muskets in the Civil War on a contract. That inspired the Colt Blackpowder Arms Co. to make some in the late 90s / early 2000-2002 with their 3rd gen Signature Series lineup.

It's been a while since I bought any BP revolvers (since before Christmas) so I haven't been paying much attention

I've noticed a solid uptick in the Colt BP 2nd and 3rd gen revolvers the last 3 to 4 months. The last RIA auction had some very healthy realized prices and the Gunbroker prices seem tonneau lifting up too. I was just wondering what the rest of you are seeing out there.
