    Pietta Model 1858 New Army .44 Caliber Revolver

    Gun has never been shot with powder, I did put a couple of caps on the gun to see how loud they were.
    I bought it because it was cool, it still is, I have just never had anytime to get into black powder. And of course I threw the box away.

    Looking to get $225, I really don't need any trades, and don't want to add any money - might consider a .38 snub nose though. I'll even take credit cards through PayPal if you pay the fee. And it can be shipped USPS Priority to your door as well, for say $8.

    I'm generally available on the west side of town, Beaverton area, during the weekday (9-4) and can meet up during that time with a little notice.

    The Remington Model 1858 was one of the most powerful and rugged performers of its day. Easily removable/replaceable cylinders make reloading extremely fast. These realistic reproductions boast a polished brass trigger guard and walnut grips. The 5-1/2" barrel makes it easier to holster and handle.
    Barrel length:5-1/2".
    Overall length:11-1/2".
    Weight:2 lbs. 9 oz.

    Includes
    Remington Model 1858
    Pre-lubed Wads
    Tin of Caps - a couple are gone
    Box of 100 Hornady 44 CAL .454 black powder balls
    New tooled cowboy holster - don't remember where I got it now.

    phone photos - I can use a real camera if needed.

    What is the difference between this one an say, a cheaper replica? Basically, what makes this one worth $250

    What are the year of proof letters stamped into it? (They could be perhaps a B or a C followed by another letter.)

    @ravencrofte - this one has a steel frame which is stronger, instead of the weaker brass frame. I believe this means you can use more powder, and get more shots out of the gun without the frame weakening/breaking. You can also buy a conversion cylinder which would let you shoot real bullets - I've seen .22 and .44lc cylinders for these models. I was going to get one, just never did. And it's made in Italy :)

    @ogre - It's a C and I believe and I. CI

    I bought it in 2012

    Thanks for looking guys

    A good gun at good price with the holster and listed accessories. I found out a long time ago that Black Powder guns for whatever reason don't sell well on NWF. If you listed your 1858 on a site that has a BP forum or sell it on GunBroker I believe it would sell rather quickly. At auction with reserve you might get more than your asking price here. I like NWF and think it is a great forum but I don't bother anymore to list a BP gun on it. Good luck on your sale.

    Thanks guys, I was trying to let someone have a good deal. :) I might have to consider putting it on another forum- or look into GunBroker. I've never sold on GunBroker before.
