My newest issue of Guns of the old west has pictures of the three new Remingtons, Two BP's and one 1875. I've noticed the two 1858's are different behind the loading lever, besides having different trigger guards. The aricle dosen't mention why the difference in the frame behind the lever. (looks like a hole there). Was anyone at the Shot Show to see these up close? Are they making one in .36 also, or are they so new there isn't much info yet?

Who is it that the cover story indicates they are made by?
Are they guns made by U.S. Firearms?
If they are, then they haven't been included on their website and catalog yet. The company did announce that the new 1858's are being made under a license agreement with Remington. So maybe they more closely resemble the originals.

On that same note, why is Uberti's new site reffering to their Remington selection as "new improved"?
