In this video I'll be shooting a replica of Remington's model 1866 revolving rifle. The replica is a carbine made by Uberti and imported by Taylor's & Company. The Remington revolving carbine is a .44 caliber, cap and ball weapon based on Remington' New Model Army pistol, often erroneously called the 1858 Remington.

I believe that firing a revolving rifle of that type involves care where the supporting hand is placed and not near the cylinder.

Bought a Pietta 1858 Army .44 cap & ball, added a .45Colt cylinder w/loadng gate, dremeled out metal to allow adding or removing cartridges, added a Cole style ejector and its now a terrific .45 with great, easy trigger pull. All expensive but will shoot right up there with my Vaquero and Blackhawk of the same caliber.
