I just ordered one of these from Cabelas. $219.99 and FREE shipping with Christmas Promo code 8SANTA.

I hope it's not a lemon.

I'm also drooling over a "Civil War" Kirst Konverter in .38

Here is my Pietta .36 Target model. I feel lucky, I got it for 172.00 about
two years ago from Deer Creek.

If you get the converter hollow based bullets work best. Bore size on a .36 is .375 and .38 bullets are .357. That makes perfect sense............Right?:D

I didn't know Pietta made a "Target" .36 Remington.

I'm trying a Pietta 'cause my last few Ubertis have been unimpressive.

Hey Lawman ...

Your new .36 will be pretty. But Thomas Raether at BP Stuff can fix that. :D

Lawman, I want one a them myself with the loading gate, but settled for an R&D drop in...for an ROA, next will be one for my .36 Rem.
If you wann save $75, call Vance at Triangle C in Trenton, Montana...
(660)359-5422 Tell um I sent ya (Smokin' Gun/Richard) and say Hi for me.
A guess would be $200/R&D Pietta for .38 Colt. (if I remember right and he had one in stock. If not he'll have Kenny at R&D drop ship it straight to ya.)

Using a conversion cylinder in .38 Spl., I had success with a heavy bullet (lyman 358430 = 195 grain RN) cast in pure lead.

Thanks for the lead. I like the Kirst "Civil War" cylinder 'cause it looks like a percussion cylinder. The R&D is nice also.


It looks like he dipped those guns in acid. :)

I think he buried them in warm cattle manure. :D

(Just kidding, Thomas. I love those guns.)

They do have a certain appeal.

I like the visual balance of the 6 1/2 inch barrel on a Remington cap & baller. The 5 1/2 incher seems a tad short, and the 8 incher seems a tad long.

Of course, with 8 inches you get more velocity, and with 5 1/2 you get concealability.

For some reason, this Pietta model does not have a standardized name.

Cabelas: 1858 New Army Police
Dixie: 1858 Belt Pistol
Midway: 1858 Remington New Model Navy
Traditions: Navy Beals Model

Ran across this site that depicts Remington Models Historically correct and Historically incorrect Models.

But I like um all anyway.

The gun arrived last week. It was nice--a little beefy, and a couple of cosmetic issues--but I sent it back to Cabelas. I have a bad case of Spillerburritis, and need to order the cure. ;)

Pietta 1858 Remington .36

So is the Dixie Remington Belt Pistol (http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_92_187_189&products_id=907) the same gun as the Remington 1858 New Model Navy here (http://members.tripod.com/rprca/ModelsNon-Colt&Remington.htm)?

Pietta only sells one version of the .36 Remington, under many names.

December 22, 2008, 03:08 PM
It looks like it but why Dixie would call it that I dunno.

Owning the .36 cal. 1858 Remington New Navy as Cabela's calls it and seeing the ad from Dixie Gun Works, it is the same revolver. The .36 cal revolver from Pietta is actually heavier than their .44 cal New Army version even though the barrel length is about an 1 1/2" shorter.

Despite its weight, I still like it over my .44 cal Remington New Army. But each to his own.
