Gizmo is a Sulphur Mustang from Utah. Unfortunately, I let a friend have him earlier this year when I had a blood clot behind my knee and was told I couldn't ride for a year. He is a people horse and none of the shooting has ever disturbed him. He is 11 years old and I got him at 1 1/2Yrs old.
Here is the picture I was looking for before.

That is an Original 58 Remy Conversion I'm shooting. As close to the "Wyatt Earp" Kevin Costner Picture as I can get.....

Rojello,
That middle one looks like the Gunslinger model I made, Did you cut it down or did someone else?

Old Dragoon, the middle one is the 5.5" Pietta 44 that Cabela's sells.

Dragoon, that middle Remington looks an awful lot like my Pietta-built 5-1/2" barrelled NMA; bought from Cabelas. But Rojelio did a nice job of "de-farbing" most of the roll stampings along the barrel flats; only leaving the Pietta maker's mark and the proofhouse stamp out there by the front site. I may be all wet and somebody can, should and probably will call me on it; but compare it to my pics on post # 427 (hey, that's a big honkin' Ford racer engine ) of this thread. Nice little gun, balances well in my hand. The frame assembly looks a little 'beefier' than the Hawes or the (is that an ASP at the top?); which is the sign of a Pietta Remington, versus the other replicas.

Dag-nabbit!
Here I left an opening for Rojelio to jump on me about how it's some kinda gee-whiz Super-Remington clone; and he goes and AGREES with me while I'm still typing!

EDIT: I even forgot to mention that I'm with Jim, West PA on being all agog over Calibre44's picture. Is that the heretofore SUPER SECRET "NAA Super NMA Companion" ???

Me likee - A LOT!

The one on top is a Pietta 36 that the previous owner decided to buff all of the bluing off of.

It's mechanicaly sound (it's the one I shot my chronograph with), but, it's going to be a project gun. It'll get new grips, maybe target sights(if I decide it's feasable) and a total refinish.

The bottom one is the Armi San Paolo 36 that I just picked up.

Uh, no, I don't think that's a real 1858 Remington NMA.
Dam what gave it away!?

Just as an aside though, it was a remmie that got me into BP shooting in the first place. Here's that magic moment caught on film of my first ever shot.

Hi Jim
LOL Ö it was bought for me by my father when I was a kid (a long time ago) and Iíve always kept it. It used to shoot those little red plastic caps on a circular strip.

Aah those were the days!

Here is a better pic:

It must be 40 years old if a day and was made by a company in Italy called 'Uniwerk' who used to make replica cap firing guns.

No doesn't fire anything anymore ... I'm afraid too much rough treatment as a child put paid to that!

Sure is a cute li'l thing; I never had a cap gun that cool as a kid! Mine were generally poor copies of an 1873 in zinc; with a drop-down side plate that you opened to insert a paper roll of caps. They were pushed up a channel (about where the "hand" travels to advance the cylinder on a Remington or Colt, or Ruger, or Smith and Wesson, or....) and were struck by the hammer.

The only real "bummer" in all that was that Marshall Dillon or Hoss Cartwright never had to tear off a strip of red paper in order to 'properly sight-in' on Bad Guy #2 after taking down Bad Guy #1

Ha ha ha, had my share o' those Yumakid.
Thinkin back now, that probably 'sparked' my later passion for BP.
Those little guns soundin off one cap at at a time got real boring real quick and i very soon found myself peelin those caps off the 'stick' one roll at a time, layin it on the cement and whackin it with a hammer settin the entire roll off all at once.

Remington "out of the closet"

This is a Navy Arms Rem. marks show it was built in 1968.
Just finished opening up around nipples to more easily use caper and fitting cylinder arbor, so as not to have to use a hammer slide out.
I had always preferred shooting my Colt, as it was less hassle to shoot and clean. but now the Rem has moved up in preferences.

Done it myownself. Even did that with Dad's old 1 lb short-arm hammer onct... The bad idea was to be under the covered carport right outside the back door of the house. On the other side of the door was Dad's "den"; with the dear old fella snoozin in his big ol' recliner in front of the TV (said he was watching the Jets lose again). One whole roll of caps, one mini-sledghammer and a 9-yr-old boy with too much boredom twixt his ears.

Pop rolled off the side of that recliner like I'd pulled the trigger on his 20-gauge while the barrel was resting on the back of his chair! Guess who got to use that 1-pound pounder settin' out ALL of the stakes for his tomato vines that spring/summer.....

Year 2000 Stainless Remington

Here's a beautiful unfired stainless Pietta target model that I bought from a Connecticut THR member. It has the proof date code "BN" which indicates the year 2000. The action is precise and the whole gun feels solid and built like a tank. It has a heavier trigger pull weight but the let off is quite crisp.
And it also came with a spare NIB stainless steel cylinder.

Dang arcticap, that is your first 1858???? I would have thought you'd be in the club a long, long time ago. I like your addition. I have the 5 1/2" version. The stainless Piettas are nice aren't they?

No, this isn't my first or last Remmy.
I've been posting all along but have simply been waiting before joining the club.
About the stainless Remmy, I'm impressed with the fit & finish and final polish. I've drooled over enough of them in the past. And I expect the polished surface to be easier to clean and somewhat more rust resistant.
If I hadn't bought it at a pre-owned discount price then I probably wouldn't spend the extra money to buy current production stainless Remmy over a blued one. But that's why I feel fortunate to be able to give this one a whirl, even though it is older production.

Shorty and the old coot...both 2005 production Pietta. These are pics I took awhile back, the old coot (7 1/2 in barrel) is a bit darker now...the metal has darkened a bit for some reason and shorty now has gloss black grips, I stripped and refinished them with some black paint and a few coats of laquer.
