    Recently I had the opportunity to visit the new satellite location of the NRA’s National Firearms Museum. It is located in Bass Pro’s headquarters store in Springfield, Missouri. The museum has an outstanding collection of military, sporting and personal defense firearms spanning history from the late Middle Ages to the present. This video has just a small sample of the collection on display.

    I mostly filmed nineteenth century revolvers, both cap & ball and cartridge guns.

    Yeah, I'm going to talk to the Remington guys at SHOT to see if it uses the same action.

    The reports I have read say it uses the Pederson action.

    I'd be curious to hear what the guys at Shot Show have to say about it. Please keep us updated.

    Thanks.

    That is correct it uses the Pederson action. I am a 1911 guy but i am considering this gun for a carry piece.
