Thank u all I finished going all thru it going to shoot it after work tommarow. I can't wait to see how it shoots. Iv worked on my own firearms for years and just reacentlly started a online gunsmith course. I completley disasembaled and rebuilt it. Lol it was rustey and not taken care of and it was loaded when I got it but the barrel didn't even look like it had ever been fired

Prelubed Ox Yoke patches are expensive about .10 cents each. Crisco in the chamber is a waste the first round blows most of it out. C3 is correct on proper ball size and 99.9% lead balls. Putting lube and patches in these guns is a modern thing. Colt never told anyone to do this in the old days. If you want a small amount of lube over the chamber use a high heat nonpetro lube like Mobile One Red Grease from Auto Zone. This whole issue of cross firing chambers is a "Boogie Man" BS yarn any way. This is caused by poor fitting caps on worn nipples no big deal. I was test firing a Ruger Old Army at the range last week. The ROA had a bad nipple and it cross fired the right out board chamber. I was shooting near max loads of 40 grs of T7 under a 200 grs. conical at a measured velocity of 1,011 FPS. at a 7 Yd combat target. The cross fired chamber and the centered chamber put rounds 1" apart in the bull. I wish I could get the gun to shoot that double all the time. The cross fired or chain fire in most cases you will not know it until you find an empty chamber you did not fire. The chamber fired ball will go 12 yards and hit the ground. The gun you have will most likely need a new set of nipples. The old nipples may be froze in the threads. Install new ones with antiseize clean nipple threads once per year. Make sure to lube the center pin. The 58' Remington will often bind by 18 fired rounds. Drop the cylinder clean and lube the center pin.

The BP hand guns are very accurate fire arms. This is a Rogers & Spencer .457 caliber revolver. The Rogers & Spencers are used by the U.S. world Shooting teams. This 6 shot group was fired with max loads at 25 yards over a sand bag rest. I hope you enjoy your 58 Remington.

For a long time this is just my first revolver. I haven't even shot it yet but it feels natural in my hand and if it shoots well I will probably buy another one this one is made by piatt. What manufacturer makes the best

Both Uberti and Piette make fine fire arms. I am a shooter and even though I own Colt, Remington and Rogers modern shooters are my favorite. I like the Ruger Old Army it is not for people who want to shoot copies of orginal pistols. The ROA is a modern powerful accurate hand gun. I also have the .45 Colt Ctg. Conv for the ROA.

This is the SS version of the ROA.
