    Actually, you did, and that's when my antenna came up.

    Your words:

    "Piettas are just as good (if not better) than Ubertis."

    Business is business, and profit is the main motive for most deals. I've owned a lot of Colts and with the exception of black rifles the quality of the finished product has been hit or miss.

    I'm not on the payroll of any gun company, although I'd be glad to take a job with one of them if you know somebody. Because I'm not on the payroll, I don't cheerlead for anybody and Ford/Chevy, Pepsi/Coke, Colt/S&W arguments don't get it for me. :v

    A different angle?

    What if a chain fire occurred and the bottom ball fired into the loading lever?

    The odds to this happening twice is extremely high, but what loading procedure is used?

    Regards

    p.s. I love my Pietta Remmi. I redid the grips by sanding, forming and preserving with oil. The blueing has worn off on some spots, but the steel is good. I also love the fact that the lost blueing gives the revolver an 'old' look as I'll probably never get the chance to own an original.

    And no I don't work for Pietta, but they can pm me for my CV. :rotf:

    You seem to scare easy. :blah:

    I used to road race a Vette in the 60-70's. More fun than a barrel of monkeys with Pietta's.

    ....and Uberti only did the castings and other basics. Colt did the case hardening, fitting, polishing etc.

    Buy a Colt and save lots of problems. In all honesty, I have Ubertis, Colts, Piettas and others and do not have any trouble with any of them

    I can only say my Pietta Remy is the best cap &
    ball revolver I have ever owned.My fist navy arm's
    1860 colt I bought in the 70's was junk.

    And the others during that era were not much better.The I took a chance a few years back
    & ordered a Remy Pietta from Cableas.

    I could not beleave how much better they are
    now, then from the past.All I can say is I love
    mine.

    I have two buddys that will tell you the same.

    Fly :hmm:
