Now There Are Two

My 1858 Remington New Army arrived yesterday to join the Colt 1860 Army which came earlier in the week. Both guns are manufactured by Pietta; and were ordered from Cabela's.

Haven't had a chance to fire either one, yet; but I am impressed with the fit, finish, and actions of both. The markings of the case hardening are more evident on the Remington than the Colt; while the bluing is very similar on each gun. The checkered grips of the Remington feel good in the hand.

No, I don't have a favorite, yet. That will have to wait until I make a trip to the range.

They would both be my favorites until I got a third one in which case all three would be favorites.

Hey, to authentically fire these, don't you need a duster and black Stetson?? (VERY nice pair.) You are now addicted. H.S.444

Great Lines

I've always had a thing for those curved lines on the 1860 and 1862 Colts. Beauttiful. Classical.

57 Chevys were cool too.
