RH0705 Pietta Colt 1860 Army Reviews

Review:

Just received this Colt repro today from Dixie and have a mixed opinion as to its merits. I have not yet fired it and so can only comment on cosmetics and mechanics. Anyone who calls these "a work of art" must have received one better finished than mine. Under mild magnification, many machine marks and irregularities can be observed including a significant gouge where the steel frame meets the brass trigger guard. Perhaps this is common as such a blemish seems observable in the sample photo at the top of this listing. This gun is superficially attractive and some parts such as the cylinder are near perfect. Other parts such as the plunger portion of the loading lever are pretty rough showing significant pitting.The walnut grips are warped and show a lot of sunlight on one side. Many people say Piettas have improved a lot recently, well I sure am glad of that because I would have hated to have seen them before!
