Default 1858 New Army

Cabala's has them on sale for $179 (also the 1851 Navy Brasser for $129). I just could not help myself, I missed my old BP wheel gun too much. I drove over before work and took one home with me. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, it's all I have here at work.

These are awesome pistols! I shoot mine about every two or three months and hitting the bullseye at 25 yards is no big deal with this gun! Great buy!

That is some nice-looking wood on the grip!

I have really enjoyed mine, and my nephew has enjoyed the NMA replica i gave him. I still haven't figured out how he loaded two balls in one chamber, though.

Shouldn't have done it but just had to at that price. Got an extra cylinder also. Both back ordered but I'm in no hurry.

That is a good deal!! I have the 1858 New Army Target model (has a rear sight) and I also bought an 1858 SS Buffalo Model that has a barrell about 12" long!! Lots of fun!! I "had" to buy the spare cylinders too. I use .454 balls FYI.

Has anyone used cast bullets from a Lee mold in these? They claim better accuracy over a round ball and I like the lube rings near the base. I am going to get a mould but don't know if I should just stick with the round ball.
