Rated 5 out of 5 by BGuthmann Old Reliable This is a very easy to use, simple to clean, and simple to load replica firearm. They are very beautiful, feel nice to hold, and bring a thrill to shoot. They are as tough as the wild country they helped to tame, and every bit as bold. Highly recommended. February 17, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by irock .4333 I bought this as a side arm for blackpowder season last year. It shoots well with 30 gr. Pretty accurate. The only thing I would like for everyone to know about this product that I didnt pickup when I bought mine is it is not a true 44, I took mine to a gunsmith and had it mic`t to .4333. They do make a .4333 ball but not just any store\gunshop has them. Had I known it was going to be a hastle I would have bought a rugar which is a true 44 . October 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by goosebuster great pistol The 1858 Remington is a great pistol. Easy to load, and to clean. Changing cylinders is a little difficult at first, but got the hang of it after a few times. It is also very accurate out to 25 yards... very good for a pistol. September 30, 2010

A:It may but it is not recommended due to the fact that it has a brass frame. You need to be careful not to use loads with too much recoil or frame may warp with time. The dimensions should be the same as the original pistol. But again, stick to light black powder loads only.
Details:The description includes the following
•Brass frame with walnut barrel
Details:Are the barrels on these black powder pistols rifled or are they smooth bore?
A:Both the Remington's and Colt's have rifling. The only difference between newly manufactured Colt's and vintage colts is that the rifling is not progressive. It means the rifling is of constant twist rate. The lead balls are slightly shaved as they are loaded into the cylinder.
The Loaded lead balls or bullets are slightly over size relative to the barrel dimensions and are able to to engage the rifling. The pure lead may also deform to engage the rifling due the pressure of the powder blast as well.
A:no... have to buy that seperate
A:Does not come with a case. You can purchase a soft case for about $6.00.
A:This pistol does not use "bullets", but instead utilizes a .44 caliber lead ball propelled by the ignition of black powder with a brass percussion cap as a catalyst. It is generally loaded using cotton wadding, and each cylinder sealed off after it is loaded with grease, wax, or some other approved substance to prevent cross-firing of cylinders.
To my experience, everything you will ever need for using this pistol can be purchased at BassPro. I also purchased some very nice accessories for it from BassPro years ago, such as the powderhorn and a nice case for carrying percussion caps.
A:I use Hornady .454 lead balls... would also recommend buying the Traditions cylinder loading stand... makes reloading much easier.
A:Generally the Redi-Pac comes with .454 lead balls. The slightly larger ball diameter is design to provide a snug fit when pressed into the cylinder. You should see some slight lead shaving when the ball is pressed into the cylinder. This is normal.
A:this uses a .44 musket ball found in the black powder section of your local pass pro, and i believeit take a #10 cap and pyrodex makes a neat preformed and measured black powder capsule get the .44 with 30 grain also get some wonderwads for packing or you can use packing grease, youtube has alot of posts on how to load these guns safely

A:you may want to double check with local hunting officials but i know here in tennessee it is not required
