Title: Do any of you guys have this?
Post by: remington1858 on March 11, 2012, 06:45:53 PM
I have a Pietta Remington 1858 shooters model in stainless steel.  Do any of you have one in stainless?  I don't see too many out there.

Thanks,
Wes

I used to have a Stainless 58 made by ASM.
It didn't survive the divorce though ... lol.

Do you guys shoot in any competitions or just plink?  I have a CWSA national event coming up this June.  Getting ready now, so it does not creep up on me.

I'm a plinker, Wes.
I try not to get too serious. Takes all the fun out of it.

Captainkirk is right.  If you make your hobby into work then it isn't much of a hobby. I like black powder competitions.  At least here black powder matches attract a more laid back crowd. I used to shoot Garand matches till it started to turn into work and I had to budget part of my paycheck into ammunition.

Don't have a stainless steel model but I do have a plain white metal one that I am pleased with. Need to defarb it so there won't be any writing on it.

Smokey, I like the look of an unfinshed revolver.

Thanks. So do I. I am shaping some grips Hawg gave me for my blued 1858. then it will get a vinegar bath before I mount the grips for finishing. Then I will have two just alike except for the grips.

Another plinker here. No competitions near by. If there were, I'd probably stay home anyhow.  :-*

I have an eight inch stainless and two target buffalo stainless. Also a .31 but it's nickel plated. The buffaloes are super accurate, my favorite to shoot.

The buffalo revolver is superaccurate.  I had one but sold it. :(
