Recent Additions to the Armory
« on: July 06, 2023, 03:31:47 PM »
 :D some recent additions.....got lucky and found a shootable 1875 44 WCF for less than a used Uberti! Covers the progression of the Remington, though the thin plate conversion is a contemporary Pietta, the others are the real deal.

These are all originals, 1861, New Model Army (1858) and the 1875.

Yes it was refinished, and the grips have a shiney varnish.....I plan to redo the grips......shop it came from thought it was a 44 Remington, got it home, found it was a 44-40! so ammo isn't a problem.........for 400 and tax it's a bargain, and it is a "real" Remington! ;D

 ;D Thanks!    Have shot the '61, no finish and a really nice bore.....drills targets, great shooter!  The Flat Plate converted Pietta, won on GunBroker with a bid I was sure wouldn't hold, is almost boring to shoot, puts them in a ragged hole at 15 yds!  ;)

These, combined with 4 Uberti '58's, another Pietta (with the 'Preacher' conversion) round out the Remingtons.....son also has one of the newer Uberti '58 conversions.....got a few......need to get all of them together for a family photo......then add in the 1851's, the 1860's, and the 1873's..........oh yeah and a Uberti Frontier NM#3.... ::)

Aside from shooting them, collecting, researching and preserving any provenance is what appeals to me...
Those Remy's are very cool.
when planets align...do the deal !
