Due to a lack of raw materials in the mid-1800s, the South was forced to reproduce the famous 1858 Remington revolver out of brass. The single-action Pietta Model 1858 New Army Brass-Frame Sheriff .44-Cal. Black-Powder Revolver celebrates the classic look and handling. Features include a brass frame and trigger guard, blued cylinder, octagonal barrel and walnut grips. Easily removable, replaceable cylinders make reloading extremely fast. This compact version has a 5.5" barrel, making it easier to holster and handle.
