Found this 1977 Euroarms Remington 1858 for 125. Fair for age. Bore looked sad till I scrubbed it. Don't know what previous owner was shooting but the latch end of the ram was bent just enough the latch wouldn't hold plus the ram lever screw was bent to the point the cylinder pin would come out.
Cylinder bore was tad small but a quick ream n polish fixed that.
Came with a flap holster.

After cylinder ream there was some left over marks where original owner apparently dry balled one and scrapped the wall with a drill. Not terribly deep and does not hamper shooting. Fixed it to accept a Pietta cylinder. Didn't take much. Just a tad of filing the pin window. Had no noticeable affect of the original cylinder fit.
