Pietta 1858 Remington Competition Model... I Hope!
« on: September 13, 2014, 11:58:42 AM »

Hi

Just collected my latest pistol after nearly 6 weeks waiting for the local Police Authority to grant me the permission to acquire it!  It was sold to me as a Pietta Remington 1858 New Model Competition but I am not 100% sure it is!



It's the stainless steel version but the thing that throws me is the foresight.  I did a fair bit of research on this model prior to buying it and the sight is not like any I have seen before.  It has the facility to adjust laterally but not up or down.



I wondered if it may be a special order item but I am not certain.  The gun has a BL date code which makes it a 1998 version but it shows little signs of use.

I was hoping maybe somebody on here might be able to convince me it's a genuine article.

I thought the 1858 Remington Competition Model had adjustable sights...! However, I no expert on the 1858 Remington style pistols...
