Review:

I purchased two of these Pietta 1851 Navy pepperbox Pistols. I use them to shoot SASS Cowboy Action Shooting matches. There is nothing in the rules that says the gun must have a barrel or sights. The first match, I shot clean with these pistols and it was a blast. They even knocked down all the fallers with a mild powder charge. The frame is a standard Pietta 1851 Navy frame with a 3" cylinder that is kept on by a screw on the arbor. It would be nice if this screw was a little thicker at the head end and knurled. It is almost a "must" to take the cylinder off to load on a press or to start the balls. The grip on the frame is a true copy of the original Colt grip. I had a pair of 1st generation 1873 Colts and the shape of the grip was exact and matched the Colts. It is no longer the Pietta "trumpet" Fit and finish is excellent and these pistols are just darn fun to shoot. Of course they do not fit standard holsters as the cylinder is longer. I simply made new holsters for them. They really are a hoot to shoot. Accuracy is not bad at all if you dip the front of the cylinder as if there were sights on them. They grouped within a fist size group off hand at 15 yards.
