  1. I have two Pietta Navy revolvers; the 1851 and the 1861, both in .36 caliber which is the authentic original caliber. The .44 caliber versions are not authentic, but maybe easier to load.
    Both guns are well made, very good looking firearms.The ’61 Navy is a joy, good looking, very accurate and well balanced. The ’51 is the captain Schaeffer model, an engraved presentation piece, I will never fire the latter gun because I think it is an instant collectible.
    I have a total of four Pietta guns and am happy with all of them. Yes, it takes a little work with needle files and stones to tune them up, but ALL B.P. guns require that, no matter whose name is on them.
    Fun to shoot and a piece of history.
