Pietta 1860 in Stainless!

Has anyone else seen pictures of Pietta's new likely stainless 1860? They have a bird-head one also. Sweet!

It looks like stainless, but it might be the same steel as that Mashals version.

I normally like stainless revolvers, but when it comes to open top c&b, I prefer the traditional blued look. I do like that short barrel one tho.

The only percussion revolvers I think are better stainless are the NMA's and ROA's.

I still like their US Marshall polished steel revolver in 44 cal. Wish I had never sold mine.

That's because most of the women I see weigh about 250 lbs.

Really like the look of the stainless 1860 with the ivory polymer grip.Take some Mother's Mag Polish to it and you'll have that stainless looking like nickel plating in no time.

Are they stainless or just the polished steel? I had one of the latter. It would rust badly and would not take a blue or brown treatment.

Were any original Colt 1860s offered in nickel?

If not, this fantasy piece doesn't interest me. Sorry!

I don't recall ever seeing a Stainless Steel Pietta with a stainless trigger guard. I think the trigger guards were all brass. Now a nickel plated one would typically have the brass trigger guard plated as well.

And a magnet test is far from conclusive since Stainless can be magnetic and often is especially with guns. Although if it does turn out to be non magnetic it rules out unfinished steel in the white.

Yes, there were original Colt 1860's that were nickel plated.
There are plenty of historically incorrect fantasy options available today but nickel platting isn't one of them.
