Talking about the cap and ball Remington (often referred to as the 1858 Remington). I was able to save one pistol from my percussion pistol collection - a Pietta Remington New Army "Sheriff's" model. This has a shortened barrel - 5 1/2" instead of the 8" barrel of the original. It's not really historically correct but apparently, some were modified like this by local gunsmiths. I like the design - especially how easy it is to take down and the fact that it has a top strap and the rear sight is milled into the frame rather than being a notch in the hammer like the Colt designs. If you're one that likes the conversion cylinders, this is so much easier to use with them than the Colts with their wedges. Anybody else here have a Remington New Army?
