I can truly appreciate that, Craig. Thank you.
Existing holster - in pomel mount
My two R&S
@DocRock, one to be envied, a flap holster on a Sam Browne Belt rig is how we carried our Smiths in my brief law enforcement years in the 60’s.
@DocRock your pic with the crossed revolvers really jumped out at me. They are totally different guns entirely, but the front of the frame screams savage navy to me. Something about the geometry of the upper and lower front corners I think.
I found a 1974 Euroarms "1858" Remington for $240 shipped but needs a good cleaning and touch up bluing. Do you like your Euroarms? Im on the fence because of parts. Any input would be appreciated Im new to Black Powder. My 14yr old and I were at the range sighting in our deer rifles last fall and a gentleman had a Uberti 1858 my son was enamored with it and even more so after the guy left him shoot a couple cylinders. If anyone has any input I'd appreciate your thoughts too.
At least there's no problem finding parts & spare cylinders for the recent production Pietta and Uberti Remingtons.
That lessens the chances that it would become a wall hanger.
Then maybe you can pass it along to your kid some day in working condition.
Welcome to the THR black powder forum John570.
I like Euroarms, but modern replacement parts may not fit (or may need fitting)
that one may have been defarbed, hence the lack of bluing...
Sorry for the late response, it wasn't defarbed it jus sat in a leather holster for a decade or so and the acids from the leather ate into the cylinder and speckled the frame.
