    stopped by Cabelas and they had one.

    knocked the shipping oil off and got busy.

    unlike my 1860, this one shoots point of aim. I like the sights much better.

    Thought it would be harder to clean with the non- removable barrel, but a tea kettle of hot water, a bore brush, and bit of ballistol was quick and easy.

    I just bought a NMA Sheriffs model but haven't got around to shooting it yet. I have rolled around 70 paper cartridges for it and am still learning that trick. Your gun looks good. I also like the better sights of the Remington over the Colt sights. Are you shooting .451 or .454 balls in your gun? I have 350 .454 balls I cast up for my gun.

    Are you sneaking onto Hickok45’s range when he’s not looking?

    The Remingtons clean up easy, mine seems to get much less blow-back into the action than my Colts.

    Yep, those Remingtons sure do clean up rather nicely!

    I'd like to have an engraved pistola some day. Looks great on that Remington. This was a sample gun brought over by Uberti's daughter when she was the U.S. sales rep. The frame has kind of a "plum" color to it, and the cylinder is serial numbered to the gun. (last four digits.

    That's pretty cool! Looks to be a New Model Navy in great shape!

    Thank you. It's built on the New Model Army frame, but with a much shorter barrel. But yes, Navy caliber. Laser accurate.!! Great shape, but well used, carried lots, she's put some grouse in the pot, and seems to be on my side on the rare occasions when I shoot a deer, (lucky gun?) and she has one Coup-de-grass to her credit.

    when I seat them, a skinny ring of lead peels off,....you can some laying on the table in the pic of my dirty hand.

    this old pic is my 1860 Colt Army, but you get the idea....

    I am more than ready to start shooting black powder again, but the place I shoot got 2+ feet of snow over the weekend and it will be a while before it all melts.
