Officially an 1858 owner

Pietta 1858 5.5” arrived today. I’m impressed with the workmanship. This should be fun.

Nice!  Mine are all 8".  Be sure to let us know how that "snubbie" shoots for you.  Thanks for posting.

Great revolvers, I have one too. I recommend 30 grains of black powder per chamber, a lubed Wonder Wad on top of the powder, a .454 round ball on top of that and #10 Remington caps and you are ready to go.
