Default Pietta Model 1860 Army .44-Caliber Black Powder Revolver FS - $120 Shipped SOLD

I believe this is a Pietta Model 1860 Army .44-Caliber Black Powder Revolver. It was passed along to me as a "display" piece as my family member did not know it was a functioning replica. Either way I do not have a use for it so here it is. Only flaws I see are a slight scuff on the grip, and with the screw near the cylinder - someone marked the barrel slightly and may have inserted the screw slightly off centered. I am not messing with it because I do not know its function.

From Cabela's: Retails 199.99

"One of the most popular cap-and-ball, single-action revolvers ever made, the 1860 Army .44 was a mainstay in the Civil War as well as the weapon of choice for Texas gunfighter John Wesley Hardin and other gunmen. Pietta's replica 1860 Army .44-Caliber Black Powder Revolver boasts a brass trigger guard, color case-hardened steel frame, round barrel and walnut grips. There's also a naval battle scene laser-engraved on the cylinder."

The $289 revolver in Cabellas is a steel framed model. Yours is brass framed and retails for less.

Good catch - price adjusted to reflect brass frame

That appears to be a mongrel, an 1860 barrel and cylinder with an 1851 brass grip frame. Someone apparently lost the wedge retainer screw and forced in a coarse thread round head brass screw, no doubt ruining the threads in the frame.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

Well that's not good - do you think this is something that could easily be tapped and fixed?

The way it looks to me is they may have only boogered up the first couple threads and the proper screw may chase those plus have enough to reach the remaining good threads. Something to try anyway.

The wedge retaining screw isnít necessary to the function of the pistol. In my experience, the wedge just pulls past the screw when pulling it back prior to barrel/cylinder removal. If I were in the market for another cap and ball, I wouldnít let that stop me

Mines NIB never fired and it has a brass trigger guard grip frame. The back strap is steel.
