Spanish Remington

If the EN Santa Barbara is in 95% condition with no ill fixes to it I'd pay $400. The ordanance grade steel is the catcher combined with the precision machining and extra smooth bores.  I like the fact the "bolt" can't peen the cylinder......like any cartridge revolver that fires smokeless powder …...unlike the Italian soft cylindered revolvers.

Good info, I am in the process of acquiring a SB.

Macgloy:
Please let me know the SN ;D and watch before you buy, is there a magnum or a deep cylinder track on it.
I have an other question about a Marlin. Who could help me to find out quantity and year of building?

 About the laser engraving.  Never seen one with it. The one I have is beautiful and a real work of art in form and function.  Definitely not laser but true hand engraved. I consider it a collectable because of the low number manufactured and the good steel they are made of. In the same class as a good Belgian 1960 Centennial New Model Army. 

I'd like to add something here. Wolf's book on the Belgian Colts is a work of art. Good fer lookin at.

One other thing. In an add at Gunbroker Auction a fellow refers to his Pietta "Shooters" model Remington as a .457 Shooter. Maybe that is what it's called but..... the one I have has chambers measuring .456 and a .457 ball is too loose and moves forward in the chambers as one is fired. I have a hard to get .464 ball mould I acquired solely for the "Shooters" Model Pietta Remington.  Shoots like a laser beam with that .464 ball. One place only I know of to get a .464 ball mould is Pedersoli.  Rapine use to sell the .464 but is out of business and the other place that used to have a .464 was RCBS and they have it no more .Pedersoli at "Flint Locks Ect." have them.  Beauchamp is the persons name that has the Pedersoli products.

Hope I'm not out of line here. I've been out of line my whole life though.

  I've been told the En Santa Barbaras Remingtons were made in the Spainish Arsenal where their military weapons are made. Thus the ordanance grade steel that seems to be the Remingtons feature.

Any info on this from anyone?
