I had no idea I was hangin' wiff a buncha haters! ^j)

The Remington was, and is, a very innovative firearm with a number of design improvements over Sam's Children, but the Colt has it in spades over the Remmy when it comes to charm, charisma, feel, and overall good looks.
Nothing looks, feels, or handles like a gen-yew-wine Colt. And you can take that to the bank.

I ain't no hater. I even stated as such. If'n you all like em' that be yer bizness. They just don't suit me. Kinda like the Ford vs. Chevy debate. It will never be settled.

I don't hate any type of firearm but I have to agree with the Captain's words 100%

Comparing the feel and natural "pointability" of my original Colt Navy and my Uberti Remington the Colt wins hands down  L@.

Based on heft, grip, pointability and stone good looks I go an 1860.  Itís the most esthetic and best handling thing I ever shot.   The somewhat elongated grip really shines when used from a moving horse.  One gets just a little extra purchase on the handle when thumbing the hammer back. I think Colt had mounted shooters in mind with that design.  But, as is known here, it works real well when afoot too.

I loves em all but those 60ís are special.

I hated a gun once. Damned if I can recall what it was, though.
