    old times are not forgot
    this unit is the second one I've bought. the first was stolen. It handles well, is well balanced, accurate, better than my .45 APC and has a hair trigger. use it for fast draw competitons with friends. As with all cap &a...mp; ball, the caps are difficult to put on, and they have a tendency to fall off if you don't crimp them, but I love this thing, and gets stares when i open carry it. more

    A piece of histoy
    I bought the piece for display and I am not sure if I will ever shoot it. So I cannot speak to how well it shoots. It looks like the machine work is nicely done. The brass parts are highly polished.On the negative side: ...1.) Because it is for display I was a little disappointed that the brass in one spot was scuffed, it might polish out with rubbing compound but that might show different than the remainder of the brass or may tarnish. 2.) I think I have an average sized hand and I find that when holding the pistol in the shooting position it feels uncomfortable in the hand. If it is an exact replica then not much can be done about that to keep it authentic looking. For me, if I was buying it to shoot, I think I would try another model. more

    First look and shoot
    I have two 1851 brass frame Colt/Pietta guns, as well as their Spiller and Burr. All good guns, all shoot nasty high though. I'll get around to fixing that sometime. I'd had the 1858 brass on my mind for a couple of year...s, and finally bought it a couple weeks ago. Shot it for the first time today. Amazing! Target printed on regular paper at 50 feet and the first five shots were one just left of center and four just right. One I have no idea, it delayed after the cap went off. Heavy one hand gun, but really nice feel and aims easy. I do recommend changing the stock Pietta nipples for Cabela's stainless set, they hold the caps much better. Overall very pleased with it. Fit, finish, and operation are the best and needed no tuning at all. Twenty grains FFFG Pyrodex and .451 ball with Wonder wads. But it. You'll be happy! more

    A Very Nice Civil War Replica
    Both my younger grandson and I are Civil War buffs. I knew he could not take a pistol back to New Jersey, so I got him this copy of a Confederate revolver for him to keep out here. He fell in love with it from the get-go..., and I kind of like it, too. It's as easy to clean as my Union Army revolver, which is identical except for the steel frame. The brass frame is a breeze to clean. I just use a liberal application of "Brasso" and it gleams in no time. Do I recommend this piece? You can bet your last pair of clean socks I do! more

    Reloading made easy
    I have for years used my Navy Colts. On getting the Remington Model 1858 New Army revolver I am ready to mount my Navy Colts on the wall. While I love my Navies reloading was always a pain even with space cylinders. With... the Pieta Army Remington reloading is a relative breeze. It took a while to develop my motor skills for changing cylinders once I got it down I am very pleased with the Army design and ease of use. I highly recommend getting spare cylinders. more

    new shooter
    I recieved my 1858 pietta as a gift. Being new to both handgun, and black powder shooting I did a great deal of study. I must admit I was concerned with this gift. After opening the box however I realized the 1858 pietta... was a well made quaility firearm. After a life time of shooting high power rifles I must say this is one of most enjoyable weapons I've taking to the range. In the future I plan on buying more products from pietta. more

    Just received my 1858 revolver. The shipping was quicker than expected and the fit and finish was up to my expectations.Since this is my 1st BP purchase I will make sure to do all of my homework before heading to the ran...ge to give it a try.I would not have purchased this item except for the positive reviews that I read on this and other sites and the fact that Cabela's pricing beat the competitors hands down. more

    Great Pistol
    I've had this pistol for about a month and it is a pleasure to shoot. I know this is hard to beleive but the first shot from 20 yds. holding half post was dead center. Windage was perfect. This is a great made weapon.

    Pietta 1858 ew army texas .44 brass frame
    First BP pistol i have ever shot and owned and it has quickly became one of my favorite guns to shoot. Accurate and extremely fun to shoot. Only downside is cleaning it. I decided to buy another BP pistol and found out t...hat its common for Brass frame BP Pistols to stretch and damage overtime. They make a conversion cylinder to shoot .45 long colt,but a brass ed framed cannot take the added recoil. So if you just buying one to shoot every now and then for fun,reenactments or wall hanger this is an excellent gun. But if you plan to shoot it alot or want to convert stay away from brass frames. more

    Superb black powder revolver
    I now have two 1858 New Army revolvers. One each Union and Confederate. Both are nicely made, strong revolvers. as a Civil War historian i can appreciate the history behind these guns.They are great dead-on shooters. I a...m very happy with Cabela's service and will definitely buy from them again. more

    Very good cap and ball pistol
    Received this pistol 4 days after ordering, good service with the standard shipping rate. Intend to use it both as a "woods carry' gun and for Cowboy Action Shooting. Have been shooting it for 2 weeks. Very fun gun ...to shoot! Good accuracy, easily hits 6 inch target at 35 feet offhand, groups about 4 inches, probably a lot better from a rest. I wouldn't hunt squirrels with it, but for CAS or coyote duty it is great. more

    This 1858 New Army was the first brass frame revolver that I bought and I was very pleased with it. I use it for plinking while on deep woods hikes and on the range. It is very accurate, surprisingly so. I use #10 caps o...nly for all my cap and ball pistols which proves to work better. Yes, the brass is harder to clean but I use Metal Glo Polishing Paste which shines it up like new with little effort. It locks up tight and I have had absolutely no malfunctions with it. I liked the looks of the brass so much that I ordered the 1851 Confederate Navy brass .44 caliber revolver. However, if you're planning to buy a caliber conversion kit then purchase a steel frame one. more

    I bought this for X-mas after buying the 1858 New Army Buffalo Brass. Easy to handle, feels great and almost as accurate as the Buffalo. The cylinders are interchangeable between these two. If your thinking about it---bu...y it. Pure shooting pleasure. Get extra cylinders and the stand. Soooo worth it. Remington #10 caps, 454 balls, Cabelas BP revolver wads, Pyrodex Pistol Powder, Pendersoli Revolver powder measure and the Pyrodex powder spout is nice. You'll be knocking cans down at 25 yards. And it feels good in a holster on your hip. Thanks Cabelas more

    Lots of bang for your bucks!
    I must say that I'm quite pleased with this gun. I'm relatively new to shooting and even more so to black powder shooting. I liked the looks and the price of this pistol and have been happy with its performance thus far.... I also must commend the service I was given by Cabelas. The first gun I was sent had a significant manufacturing defect, I was given both quick and quality service in providing me with a replacement. Thus far I have found it to be very accurate and relatively easy to clean after shooting when compared with the 1851 Colt reproduction. I don't see how you can go wrong with one! more

    Re-Enactment Revolver

    This was my first black powder revolver I have owned, I received it a couple of weeks before Christmas. AMAZING! The quality of the revolver was better than expected. Took it out the next day shooting, and it was dead ac...curate and it's operation was also flawless, no miss fires and no problems. I was so impressed with it I bought another one a few days later, why not you have to hands right! I would recommend the Pietta .44 revolver to anyone who have ever thought of owning a black powder revolver. The folks Cabela's make it even easier with their help and operating instructions they provided above and beyond what was provided in the box by the manufacturer. more

    Makes shooting an event
    Wonderful workmanship. Very impressive look and feel. It took a bit of getting used to the loading process, however it is well worth it for the end result.Smoke and flames let you know you are shooting a real weapon. Hit... skeet clays at 50 feet (propped up against a backstop, not in the air) on the first try. It gives you respect for what someone had to deal with before pre-loaded cartridges. Just keep it cleaned and properly lubricated like any firearm.I would recommend the loading stand and spare cylinder if you can afford it. more

    My first BP gun
    This is the first BP gun I purchased and I can tell you that it's a good one. The 8" barrel is a bit long, but after a while you got a feeling to it. I accessorized this gun with the .22LR Kirst converter and it fit...ted right into it.You need a bit more time to clean the Brass parts, but no big deal to me. more

    Brass 1858 Remington
    This is my first BP gun, and it is a joy to shoot. It has a nice solid feel to it, and the brass frame gives a nice visual contrast to the blued steel. It does take a long time to clean, but that is to be expected with a... BP gun. 20 grains of powder makes a nice boom and very little recoil. Like some other reviewers noted, Remington #10 caps fit very nicely. more

    I bought this pistol to add to my collection and to occasionallly take to the range. Since it looks really good in the display case (which I had plated with the pistol's type and kind), I really don't want to fire it for... fear of potential discoloration. I think I'll just keep it where it is for now, and pass it on to my son. more

    Reenactor's Side Arm
    For years I have been using an 1860 Colt 44 Cal. pistol for my infantry side arm during Civil War reenactments. Due to their design, I can not conveniently change cylinders during a battle.

    Excellent Gun
    I recieved my '44 Texan' cleaned it up an went to the range. It performed outstandingly. Accuracy was above average. Cylinder is easly changed making spares a must have. I fired 12 balls though it today an I was amazed a...t the smooth action an total performance of the gun. The only problem I experenced was the Nr. 11 caps were a little to big so I had to be careful so that they wouldnt fall off. Not a big deal. Overall i was totally pleased with my purchase. This gun is a beauty. more

    1858 remington brass
    I purchased this revolver for myself a few months back and recently fired 24 rounds thru it using Hornady swaged round balls and Triple seven FFFg powder. The results were amazing. At a Distance of 20 yards i had a six s...hot group with a 1 1/2" center. The recoil is mild compared with smkeless powder. I first used a load of 25 grains powder. Next was 30 grains.I settled on 28 grains as the optimim charge, but feel I can safely load 30. One note, be sure to use #10 percussion caps. # 11 will fall off the nipple. This is a fine revolver with a good balanced feel to it. more

    First BP firearm
    This was my first purchase of a black powder firearm, for that matter first time ever having to do anything evolving black powder. This pistol is awesome, shoots great and simple to get it to the point of shooting it. I ...decided to use 30 grains of powder and a .454 size ball after doing some research. In my opinion this is a great combo my first 2 shots where center mass and within 1" of each other. This gun was so enjoyable to shoot I bought a second one within 3 days of shooting the first one.I can see this being a great father son event..Definitely a good time..Enjoy.Oh ya one more thing I use the wool patches and clean up wasn’t that bad even after shooting 34 shots. more

    1858 brass new texas army
    I took delivery of my new BP pistol on Friday and just looked at it for a while,IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I don't know if I will shoot it,(just kidding)I cleaned all the oil out of it and made sure the nipple holes were open.Over...all it looks VERY good and seems to function the same. I took it to my gun club today and I think there will be some orders comming your way.I have a Brescia ,Euroarms in the same model and if the Texan shoots like the Brescia it will be a tack driver. There is only one thing I need to know, what nipple wrench do I need for this gun, the one for the Brescia doesn't fit.Also , does anyone out there know any thing about the Euroarms company? more

    I first got this pistol about 13 years ago, and i have used it for years in both reenactments and target shooting. I got it at 15 and like any kid i was rough with it, and it works just as fine as it did when i got it. I... have not had any major issues with it and i do not recall any chain fires or misfires. I currently can shoot 6 inch groups at 50 yards using 32 gr. of powder. I highly recommend this pistol. more

    1858 New Army Texas .44 revolver
    I am very impressed with the "Fit, Finish and Action" of this beautiful reproduction. After reading many poor reviews of other Pietta BP revolvers such as the 1851 and the 1860, I was hesitant to order this mod...el. However, I am so impressed with what I got when I opened the box from Cabelas. I should have known. This is not the first BP gun that I have purchsed from them and have yet to be even slightly disappointed. The quality is supurb. the fit and feel in your hand tells the story. No scratches or ugly machine marks or poor fitting grips. You can feel the quality just in the feel of the action alone.My only regret is that it is -10 outside and am unable to actually go out and shoot it. I am 100% sure it will shoot as great as it looks and feels in my hands.I have owned brass framed BP revolvers in the past but they were from the 1970's era and I am sure the full frame of the '58 Army (Brass) is much stronger than that of the 1851 brass half frame of yesturyear and even todays model.My only advice is start with light loads and work it up from there. Don't let the brass scare you off. Just be smart about your loads. Use 454 lead balls, Pyrodex P 25-30 grans (no more with brass frame) and you should be fine. more

    A Fine example of modern reproductions
    So had great fun with the pistol, but must practice more. It is also a good idea to buy an extra cylinder or two so you can load in advance. Unlike the "Navy" cylinder changes are quick and easy.

    1858 New Army Texas .44 Caliber Revolver
    This is the second black powder revolver I have ordered from Cabela's and once again, I was NOT disappointed! Item was in stock and received within 5 days. Fit and finish is very good! Remember to use Remington #10 percu...ssion caps on Pietta revolvers. You may need to slightly pinch the open end to hold the caps securely on the nipples. Cabela's has a great selection of guns AND the best prices! I wish they would add a Screw Set for this model as the screws seem to be of a softer metal and the slots can be damaged easily, even when using gunsmithing screwdrivers. more

    This is a great black powder gun. It is easy to load and I feel safe using it. It will shoot a tight group at 30 ft. (better than my 9mm) I found the #11 caps are to big and the #10 are to small. The Dynamite Nobel #1075... seem to work better on this gun. more

I expected it to shoot good (I already have the standard steel frame 1858 New Army and it's a tack driver too), and I was not disappointed. A buddy was... with me who had never tried a black powder revolver before and he was not interested- till he tried mine. Now he wants one too! I am not kidding- the 1858 Army revolvers are probably among my most accurate and enjoyable handguns- and I have a lot of 'em! more

    Fun to shoot
    Nice gun for the price. Recommend getting the extra cylinder. If you buy this gun and order some lead balls at the same time, it takes the .454 lead balls. Also, the wads are a lot less hassel and cleaner to use than lub...e. more

    Outstanding product!
    I own many pistols, all of them revolvers and to my own liking.the 1858 NA Texas is a great sidearm not only by performance but for the price. built very durable- extremely easy to clean, I not only recomend this pistol ...for the seasoned hunter, but also a great way to start in the "black powder" world. I've field tested different powder charges ranging from 30 grains and up to 38. (35 is recomended) only minor differences, due to it's sturdy build. 58 Texas looks great in my holster, and in my collection. highly recomended. more

    1858 New Army Texas .44 Caliber Revolver
    This was my first BP pistol. It appears to be made well, very easy to load and clean. Misfires only occured due to operator error. Make sure all the oil is cleaned out of the nipples or it will not fire.
