Hoof Hearted,
I'm on so many different lists that I don't remember a CAS-L but I've probably been on it. (CAS-City, Open Range, SASS Wire, ML-L and several others that have BP sections).
I'm not the one that founded this Remington association so it is up to the "officials" to make any declaration but if anyone has an original that is, to me, even more proof positive that they belong.
I only have 8 Remingtons (all repros).

Here's my two "1 of 5000" consecutively numbered, unfired, nickel and gold plated, fully engraved, Pietta Remingtons.

















Not really advertising them here, this thread is for show/sharing, but my above special edition Remys are for sale, if anyone is interested e mail or p.m. me. (Don't comment or ask me at this thread).
I'm a shooter and I've decided to not keep guns I don't shoot or that are too collectible to shoot as these are.
I've got to sell them before I fall prey to the urge to shoot them , which would drastically decrease their collector's value.


Here's three pics of my stainless, Pietta, target sighted model. I'm keeping this one. It's a great shooter and being polished stainless, an easy cleanup with hot soapy water. After every shooting I IMMEDIATELY (within a few hours) dunk the entire revolver, brush out the barrel and cylinder chambers and carefully scrub the nipples and exposed portion of the forcing cone and everything else with a soapy toothbrush, rinse it with hot water, let it dry naturally or dry it with a hair dryer, and then using that little red tube on the WD40 can, I spray into the openings in the revolver so I cover the internals with WD40 and drive out any moisture from the cleaning. I don't WD40 the insides of the chambers on the cylinder though, and just let them dry naturally or with a hair dryer.

After several separate outings of shooting, I take it completely apart and clean the internals carefully and then lube them with some non petroleum based lubricant so the lube won't hold BP fouling residue. Sometimes I'll take the nipples out and re-new the anti seize compound on their threads too. I also lessen the tension on the bolt spring some too and then secure the bolt spring bolt with a little blue locktite so it won't vibrate loose. It isn't necessary to use the full tension of that bolt/trigger spring and lessens the ringing line on the cylinder. Less tension on it also means my bolt/trigger springs last longer too. I've had a lot of BP revolvers, but never any before in stainless. This revolver has totally sold me on having stainless ones.

The barrel and loading lever have been cut down and a new dovetail slot cut in line with the barrel made on top of the shorter barrel for re-attaching the front sight and the loading lever latch underneath the barrel has been re-attached too. Barrel is nicely crowned also. A carefully done modification of the target model. I have the R&D conversion cylinder for it also in .45 colt long. Yep, this one's a keeper.

Here's mine, a Pietta that I custom cut, recrowned & throated the barrel, reamed the chambers to .4510, smoothed the action & a few other custom work along with browning it.

Wife said I can't get any more tattoos. She might make an exception for crossed Remmies!

In the old days, a 'Tattoo' was also a Musical composition, or March.


Say oam,


Your 2nd Remington there in the image...

Is that a dull Magnetic Stainless Steel?


Is it a Uberti?



Looks a lot like mine.

@Oyeboten : the first one is a pietta stainless and the second have no name on it, only a double diamond like that:

maybe "hubertus" or "MOFRA di mainardi" :-/
It's not a stainless one and i made the ring that you'll better see on this picture:

(thank you for the sense of "tatoo")

Hi oam,



I really like that 'In the White' look.


Mine, when I first saw it, appeared to be a mellow, in the White, but, I later realized it was some sort of Stainless.


The next county over from me here has Whore Houses.

I went to one to see what it would be like, and, all the gils looked like retired Roller Derby champeens.


Man, I never seen a rougher, tougher bunch of girls anywhere before or since.


If I was ever going to be in a Bar Fight, I would definitely want them on my side!


Lol...

That cylinder in your Case Hardened Pietta appears to be a Kirst with Walt's "reinactor" backplate........you sure it's chambered in 44-40?

Revolver is proofed up with internals specially hardened and polished, trigger pull set, barrel replaced etc.. I fire Triple Seven 3fff, load equivelent to a .44-40. Use Remington #10 percussion caps and swaged round lead .451 balls just like my carbines. I will immediatedly remove all reference to '.44-40' in the above post. Didn't mean to cause confusion. PS.. Not asking to be a member of this '58 club. I belong to the 1847 WALKER CLUB. Proud of it to....
