old remingtons
« on: March 09, 2020, 06:06:59 PM »
As a new user here I guess this is where I tell you all stuff and nonsense. Well I shoot  originals all 1858. I have a few of them and I am not a purist that keeps them in a safe just to look at. They are all shooters I need a couple anyway as you know that black powder gets sticky after 50-60 rounds or so. The reason I landed on the site is for  info here and there as the ones I use may need some love and it seems they get it here. I have an odd one it was a type 2 heel base center fire, six shot 44 conversion, a few were done by S&W I am hoping somewhere along the line to actually get it back to it's conversion style,all the machining is correct for that.It is now just shooting black powder. I love em I take them to the club and stink up the place but it smells like victory to me.
