Very nice, I have been wanting to get a pair myself.

Thanks, wife got it for my birthday 2 years ago, need to get it out and shoot it some more, really wanna pick up one with a removable cylinder.

yea I have been wanting an 1858 myself for the removable cylinder. I have the 1851. And the cylinder comes off. But simply not the same thing. Nobody wants to be removing their barrel to reload.

Yeah that's how this one is, barrel comes off, you can still load it just takes a little longer, so a removable cylinder is ideal.

I think i should've started with a cap-n-ball more like that, Colt style. I started with a pair of 1858 replicas and am spoiled to reloading on a press now.

I obtained a Pietta 1858 New Army, 5 1/2" barrel. Obtained a .45 LC cal. cylinder with loading gate, dremeled a channel so I could flip that loading gate and load. Accurate, great easy trigger,
and I habe shot hundreds of rounds (my reloads) without a hitch. Gun cost $218 (back then) , legally came in the US Mail, .45 cylinder somewhat expensive. Total cost, could have bought an Italian .45 single action for the same or less. But I love this pistol !

I've got their Colt and Remington replicas and they are fine quality firearms. Congrats to you and good shooting.

The Perc. handguns are great firearms to shoot targets or hunt. There are many fine offerings. I like the ROA and the Rogers & Spencer target.:D
