Anyone know when they stopped selling the .36cal brasser [the one w/o the step in the water table to match the stepped .44cal cyl?] I just now realized I hadn't seen it for awhile...

Eh. Do they make pre-formed powder pellets for this like they do for 50-cal muzzleloaders?

No. Hornady owns the patent on that, iirc, & I don't believe they've ever offered their Pyrodex P in pellet form [Would that be "triple P" vs 777?... ;-) ]

Cab's is running a speshuul on all their Pietta percussion repops right now, it seems. You'd be better off going w/ one of the "Sheriff" models w/ the shorter barrels if you were serious [which we all know you're not] about carrying a percussion handgun concealed. Or just get this: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Pietta-Model-Navy-Yank-Pepperbox-Cal-Blac...

The brass frames looks sweet, but are weaker than the steel frame versions currently on sale for $30 more. If it's just for a show piece you won't shoot much they are okay. If you want to shoot the gun a bunch and use more powerful loads then spend the extra for a steel framed gun. The brass frame versions aren't strong enough for the cartridge conversion cylinders either.

Cap and ball revolvers are tons of fun to shoot and a great deal for the money. I make paper cartridges for fun and to speed up loading at the range. At 25 yards my Pietta 1858 New Army drives tacks with it's 8-inch barrel.

I'm tempted to order a couple of those $100 Cabela's gift cards selling for $82 on eBay to use on a steel frame 1860 Army. Does anyone know how long this current sale is going to last?

Serendipity smiled upon me last week when SMV? [the reputable seller of the discounted Cab's GCs on eBay] had the "$82 for $100" sale running and they arrived in time to pick up the pepperbox and a matching steel frame .36cal 1851 [I want to verify the reported ability to mix & match barrels on the pepperbox frame.] From my experience w/ Cab's the sale will probably run for another week or so: they're probably trying to blow out inventory before they have to pay tax on it at the end of the month. [The real reason you see so many "after xmas" sales on non-perishable inventory this time of year...]

This sale is the standard prices you could expect to see on C&B Pietta's a decade ago before the GFM layed a beating on the $/Euro exchange rate & Obamanation Pt1 jacked up the price on every kind of firearm. Nice to be seeing signs of normalcy again: C&B prices back to what they should be, 22lr ammo on the shelves... Yippee! :-)

Sort of. Google "Tuning a Pietta" [part 1 & part 2] for what you need to do to these supposedly "ready to shoot" firearms before you actually _go_ to the range...

Correct: this is not a "kit," where you would be expected to complete the finishing of the metal/wood fit, polishing of the exterior, etc. Those used to sell for ~ $100 vs. the $150 of the completed C&B "Confederate" [ie: brass frame] models, back in the day...

Black Friday prices from 3 years ago before "Quantitative Easing" had time to inflate prices = You're not going to see that price again any time soon, unless Trump's economic turnaround efforts bear fruit and the $/Euro exchange rate gets closer to par...

So the reloading stand/press ( as extra piece of equipment ) is really how to reload quicker and easier? Especially if you have extra cylinders?

Sorry back then, they never put good sights on any thing, other than the nicer sniper rifles... ( or the add on tangent site!). Is this weapon mechanically accurate enough if one has a good eye and a steady hand?

Always like to make smoke and boom at the range ( outdoor for sure!). Time to switch over to cap and ball... cool.

On the full size guns [7.5" barrel or longer, depending upon model/maker], you've usually got a long enough charging handle for leverage that loading in the revolver is fine[1]; in the shorter-barreled "Sheriff" versions you might want the loading stand. "Shopkeeper" versions usually have such short barrels they just delete the loading lever entirely, knowing that you'll have to load the cylinder via external method. [1] Talking round balls here, which have a very narrow band of lead that will get shaved off during loading; "conicals" [what we now think of as "regular bullets," altho' they were still a new development in the period these repops are from] are a different matter, as they may be too long to fit under the ram, or have so much bearing surface that you need a longer lever to force them into the cylinder. For those, a loading stand may be advisable/required.

I have this model. I don't find that a reloading stand makes anything easier.
This is my favorite gun to shoot. Deeper boom, flash and smoke.

I got one of these a few years back. It's a fun to shoot and can be delivered to your door with out an FLL.

FLL? Firearms & Liquor License? Didn't anyone ever tell you those two don't mix well? [Yeah, yeah, I know: it's not good netiquette to make fun of someone's typo, but I couldn't resist! Thanks for the setup for my joke! ;-) ]
