Congratulations. I'm looking forward to your comparison.
IIRC, back in the day E.M.F. (Early Modern Firearms Co.) didn't indicate who their suppliers were. They were sort of like the old Herters catalog in that they advertised the highest quality for the lowest prices. At their web site, E.M.F. clearly indicates their M1858 Remingtons are now made by Pietta. Some other E.M.F. guns are by Uberti.
