RH0214 Dixie Pietta Remington 1858 Belt Pistol Reviews
Product: RH0214 Dixie Pietta Remington 1858 Belt Pistol RH0214 Dixie Pietta Remington 1858 Belt Pistol

Review:

This pistol is officially titled the 1858 New Army Police revolver in 36 caliber. This is my first 36 caliber arm. Upon buying this revolver, I ran it through unsuccessful tests. The problem was not the gun, but caps. No.10s never come off. Even pinching No.11s dont guarentee success. But when I recieved my new caps, I went ranging and this is my results.

at 50 yards I didnt expect to be accurate . But to my surprise, with both 20FFFG and 30 FFFg charges over a 375 lead ball killed the target with 6" groupings. Off of a rest of course.

at standard 25 yards, i dumbed down the loadings to 10gr. FFFg and got 2". This didnt change with more brutal 20 and 30 gr. loads. The 10gr is great for varmiting and small stuff because of its low noise and low waste of powder. The 20 is standard I would assume. Great for general use. And the 30 kicks very, with dramatic smoke and great penetration powers. Behind my targets sat an oak block. The 10gr, put a 5/8" dent and then fall out. The 20 lodge 3/4 the way in. and the 30 go a full inch and lodge. Oak is hard people, bone will shatter. So all in all, a great gun and the 36 not as anemic as I though.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
