Continuing our series on how YOU can accurize your revolver, we do an in-depth profile on this iconic black powder revolver. Why are percussion guns given a bad rap? Because a few simple steps are left out of the production gun process.
We do a shoot and see with our Remington 1858 Pietta Cap and ball percussion revolver we opened the cylinder throats and chamfered the forcing cone. Did we screw up the pistol or is accuracy improved?
We take a break from work and putz around with an iconic firearm from the past. The 1859 Sharps Carbine Pedersoli reproduction is a blast (literally) to shoot and load.
