I haven't shot BP since I was a kid. Been wanting a revolver and found this on a local forum. I figure I can get a little more rounded in firearms. If the other 39 don't work out I can use this. At least it should be fun as heck to shoot.

Those little Remington pistols are a real pleasure to shoot. Super accurate even with moderate loads. From the looks of the picture you posted its only been lightly used. Hopefully there isn't any corrosion when you pull the nipples out and inspect the chambers. Give a post or two if you have any questions on the safe care and feeding of a BP revolver. Good shootin!

Yes, I would recommend. Make sure to clean it well though. Don't neglect it. Clean it at least every three range sessions.

Keep a lightly oiled rag with you when shooting it. About every third cylinder, pull the cylinder and wipe everything clean before you shoot it anymore. Make sure you wipe the cylinder pin good. The main problem is the pin crudding up with powder residue, and then being difficult to slide out to remove the cylinder. ALWAYS,,,,,, did I mention,,,, ALWAYS,,, clean the gun well after each shooting session. Don't leave it till the next day, or you will pay for it.

IF You wait three range sessions between cleanings you will never make it to the second session.

BP guns must be cleaned after each use. That day!

I have seen rust form on BP guns on the trip home from the range.

BP guns are a blast to shoot.

I love them and I someday hope you realize that Remington copies are not as nice or cool as the Colt clones (my opinion only).

I love my 1851 Navy.

I don't own any BP revolvers thus the following question:


Aren't the Remingtons sturdier than the Colts due to the "top strap"?

The Remingtons are stronger than the Colt replicas. Another plus is the ability to quickly change the cylinder for a reload. the Remys don't point quite as natural as a Colt though. It's not much of a difference, but some.

Yeah... but James Butler Hickok thought them '51 Navies were strong enough. I agree. Got about 15k rounds through each of mine. BTW... there is still no "play" in the cylinder pins on mine... they are as strong as ever.
