Uberti® Reproduction Remington® 1858 New Army .44 Revolving Target Carbine. A faithfully-recreated tribute to one of the first cap-and-ball revolving carbines!
Following the success of the 1858 New Army Revolvers, Remington® was inspired to create the unique New Army Revolving Carbine. Using the same frame and cylinder of its "little brother" the Target Carbine featured a crescent-style brass butt plate, walnut stock, and stylish brass triggerguard with spur. Unfortunately, only a few thousand were ever produced, and even fewer survive to this day.
Until now! Uberti® is happy to offer this authentic, real-shooting Reproduction of the famous Carbine, made to the same high standards established during its original manufacture. It's the real deal in every detail... a completely faithful, real-firing black powder replica of the famous Remington piece. It's a must have for every black powder collector and shooter!Take aim:
