JU-Kar was Spanish trade name in the 70's and mid 80's (CVA)  Connecticut Valley Arms importer as was Miami based Firearms Import and Export Corp. (FIE ) Kit and questionably fit & finished guns.

They made CVA s line of muzzle loaders, and I recall SAA & C&B made with FIE and CVA stamps.

Buck,  for your needs a Denix non-firing replica would serve...

I think there has been a lot of miscommunication here.  I have no idea what a "Jukar" is.  Never heard of it until you mentioned it in your post.  I don't care what make it is, as long as it is a reproduction of an 1860 Colt percussion.  When I use the term "junker", that means it can be rusty, missing internal parts and non-shooting condition.  I do need it to be complete externally, cylinder, frame, back strap and trigger guard, loading leaver and 8" barrel.

Howdy Buck,

I may have misread your post, but that just proves my point. There is no "jukar" 1860. Further, as I said any 1860 would probably work.

Glad I could help.

SCORRS / Pietta's Brotherhood Of The Traveling 1858
« Last post by Rube Burrows on June 08, 2023, 01:13:04 PM »
I am not sure how many people here are aware of the Brotherhood Of The Traveling 1858 that Pietta has going around right now. I thought I would share a little bit about it here for those who have not heard of it.

So, The Brotherhood of the Traveling 1858 is an engraved Pietta New Model Army "1858" that Pietta is nice enough to ship around the country and let people try it out.

The person gets to keep the revolver for a whole month. It comes in a big wooden box and comes with a journal. In the journal the people from Pietta wrote a few opening pages explaining the project and what the journal could be used for. Its pretty neat. While you have the gun they ask you to photograph it, share it with people you know, shoot it and just enjoy it for a month. Then it makes it's way onto the next person.

I follow lots of gun guys and have seen this make its way to several of the people that I follow online. In the journal the previous people have written words of encouragement, some scriptures, some just explain what they did with the gun or how it shot. Some detailed how they carried it to church or how they carried it while doing ranch duties.

One guy videoed himself splitting cards with it and he put one of the cards in the box.

I had hoped that one day it would make its way to me and that day has come. Last week I was contacted by Pietta and asked if I knew about the project and if I would want to be a part of it.

Of course I would I told Pietta. I was familiar with the project and had been hoping it would make its way to me.

Yesterday I got the package in the mail and I have to say. The gun is way more beautiful in person than the photos and videos I have seen. They just do not do it justice.

It's so cool for a company to do such a project and let us be a part of this guns written/photographed/videoed history.

We often say, "if this gun could talk", well, one day someone will look back and read of the journal and possibly see the videos or social media posts about it and this gun will actually be able to tell its story.

That is pretty neat in my opinion.

Here are a few photos that I made yesterday. I hope to get it out and do some shooting this weekend.

Reverend,  Not looking for a "Jukar",  I'm looking for a "JUNKER" bad, beat up or broken.

Howdy Buck,

I don't know if this helps. Jukar was the Spanish company that make all of the CVA kits originally. I worked for CVA back then and I don't remember their having the ability to manufacture a pistol of that complexity. I suspect that a Jukar 1860 was actually made by an italian company. As such, I would think that any Italian repro 1860 would work.

I must admit that I have never seen an 1860 marked "Jukar" so some more research may be needed. In any event, It's hard to think that there could be that much dimensional difference between repros. Maybe someone here has knowledge of these Jukar 1860s.

That's all I understand about what I know about it.
