This weapon performs very smoothly. There is almost no pick to the revolver and loading (while it does take time) is pretty easy to master. With that being said, Pietta has a well documented problem with making the wedges far too tight in the barrel. It is nigh impossible to get pulled out, even with all the suggestions of leather mallets and brass punches. That make it impossible to clean besides a very basic spot cleaning with the wire rods and brushes, so I cannot give this weapon a 5. Was it easier to dislodge (which I haven't been able to over a three day period) I would give it a 5.
This is my 3rd pistol from Pietta good finish and fit never had any problems and will buy another one from them.they shoot just like the originals high.People complain that the 1860 Army has a navy scene on the cylinder well the original has the same navy scene on it. This was S.Colts trade mark.I have the 1851,1858 now the 1860 all 44s.no complaints.
Initially these seem well built till you start shooting them, first thing to fail is the dovetail clasp that holds back the ram rod to the bottom of the barrel, I've had two of these revolvers and both had identical issue's, after shooting less than 24-30 balls, this part fails due to poor metal quality, next problem is cylinder to frame is too far from hammer, often percussion caps can't be stuck to detonate charge, with all the hardware tightened cylinder also seems to have a more than normal gap from breech of barrel I won't be buying any more piettas ever again, sportsman customer service has been helpful and either exchanged or replaced.
