Finally Shot my Old Rem
« on: April 30, 2015, 12:26:53 PM »
Finally got done with restoration on my old Remington 1858-1861-1875 New Army . Just wish had more ammo ,only loaded up 3 rounds to just try it out loaded with Pryodex RS. worked as planned , No I didn't hit target with close groups . Then I wasn't trying to target test it. Just wanted to check it to see if it operates like it should. It did. Shot little high but probably was me more than it. Most my pistol shooting is Glock or 1911. None have 8 inch Barrel. any way wish I had better picture's of the smoke let off. Rem is back to shoot again  _l

Congratulations! Looks fine. But I think the high hits are due to the original low front sight (set for 75 yards)
