1858 Remington Steele Frame .44 Black Powder Revolver- F.LLI Pietta

1858 Remington Steele Frame .44 Black Powder Revolver made by F.LLI Pietta sold by Cabela's

Had it on display - Hardly fired - Original box and manual and display accessories – brass powder horn, brass measure, primer storage tray and stand.

Remington Army revolver is large-framed revolver in .44 caliber with an 8-inch barrel length. The Remington revolver owes its durability to the "topstrap", solid-frame design. The design is stronger and less prone to frame stretching than the Colt revolvers of the same era. The internal lockwork of the Remington is somewhat simpler in construction. While the Colt employs separate screws for the hand and trigger, those components share the same through-frame screw in the Remington design. A downside in the design of the 1858 is that that the barrel and receiver are a single piece, making it more difficult to clean the barrel, as it cannot be removed. The Remington revolver permitted easy cylinder removal, allowing a quick reload with a spare pre-loaded cylinder; this being an advantage over other revolver designs of the time. The ruggedness of the solid frame and the ability to quickly change cylinders made the Remington Army a favorite of officers and infantry alike during the Civil War.
