SS1249 PIETTA 1851 YANK SNUBNOSE REVOLVER 44 Reviews

Review:

After watching several on-line videos of this type of revolver being fired, I decided to purchase one. It is very well made and fun to shoot.
I used 25 grains of Triple 7, a felt wad and .454 balls.
I did not bother to use the brass loading rod which comes with it, but instead a .44 cal. revolver loading stand which Dixie sells. I mounted it on a 5x8x3/4 piece of wood for stability.
I used a 10 x 3/8 inch piece of stiff fiberglass ramrod to slide the barrel forward and off the cylinder pin -- strong and will not damage the bluing.
The revolver was quite stiff at first but after firing 6 cylinders full, things smoothed up.
I found that No. 11 CCI caps work better than Remington caps -- they are just a fraction longer and grip the nipples better after being slightly pinched. Fouling buildup on the nipples also helps to hold them in place too
