1851 Confederate Navy Black Powder Pistol




What do you think about this video?

jason grier: @TombstoneMorgan ok thanks man im gonna look into it cause i would really like to have one of these also i have another questions what pistol did the calvary use for the confederacy?(my ancestor served in 53rd alabama partisan rangers calvary)

csgtfaught: @TombstoneMorgan found it, little s.o.b was hiding under the padding in the box lol, just finished it up this afternoon, i'll post a vid of it today.

csgtfaught: do you know here i can get a wedge screw for the 1851 navy? im doing a restoration and my customer has no idea where his is and i don't have one in my parts drawer.

sonnyalexcasey: @Tombst i have the same gun as you and i would like to know the name of the tool or company name of it...ive looked online at sportsmans ware house...couldnt find it

rednecknick413: i have the same pistol i got mine from cabelas they are awesome for the price you pay very easy to disasemble and clean good vid

Art Warmanen: I have the 36 cal. Leech and Rigdon model . Made by Uberti

Robert C. Walters: @TombstoneMorgan i have two versions of this pistol. i have a .36 cal that my uncle gave me. i also have a .44 cal that i bought from a friend for $50 because the cylander would not rotate right. when i took it apart ( witch i found very easy.) i found that the cylander stop spring was broken. i ordered a new one from dixie gun works. after i put the new one in the hammer would not lock back. i took the new spring back out and trimmed it now every thing works great. what powder load do you like.

Howard Teets: Kurt is a few months older then me.

WildGaston: no more then 25. but prob more like 20

dellandjanis: Thanks, You were right,it did come out. It was just very tight I do have a few very small scratches now though on and right near the wedge. It was that tight.

csgtfaught: @Frimsure got one a while ago but thanks, check video response for my handy work ;)

RabbitusMaximus: Friend: One alternative to tapping the frame off from the barrel is to rooster the hammer enough to spin th ecylinder, then index the cylinder to the safety notch pins between nipples, and simply drop the rammer lever....it will not align into a chamber and will thus gently press off the barrel from the arbor rather than beating on the trigger housing. Try it and tell me how you like it.... Regards,

Howard Teets: @Drumaboiiii Spray with WD-30 or soak in penertrating oil for a long time.

FUBAR SNAFU: what load to use as far as powder? 30grain? im have been hearing about the stretching brass is that a real factor or myth?

Howard Teets: @Southernjuggalo63 Black powder are firearms but each state considers them different. Check with your state.

Howard Teets: @csgtfaught Try the manufacture or a gun shop

57AGS88: Tombstone, Where did you get that nifty brass tool for removing the wedge?

Jodi Baldwin: The first time I took mine apart, I noticed that the nipple bore on only one chamber was smaller than all of the rest by maybe 50%. It still looks big enough, but is that normal? I haven't even fired it yet, but I'm wondering if it could be built up powder from the test shot.

Howard Teets: Any store that sells black powder supplies good luck.

DemonCisco: Use the ramingrod against the cylinder instead when you remove the barrel.

jason grier: @TombstoneMorgan are blackpowder pistols considered the same as new pistols or are they like muzzleloaders not considered a firearm?

casenater93: morgan at the beginning you sound like kurt russel hahaha thats a cool gun!

Howard Teets: After time you will not need the mallet. If you want take an emery board: Thing girls use for nales. and take a little off each side of the wedge and test fit until it pushes in with a little forcr by hand. Just do the sides. Hope that helps. You may still need the mallet for the removal of the barrel until you do it enough for it to wear down. Morg.

Howard Teets: Sportsmans warehouse in Phoenix Arizona

dills2403: @glynamus whats that brass punch he is useing to get the wedge out?

Howard Teets: Thanks 1880 Time Traveler. All is well here hope all is well with you. Morg.

Howard Teets: @Drumaboiiii Spray with WD-30 or soak in penertrating oil for a long time. Let the oil do the work do not force.

1880TimeTraveler: Hey Morg,, thats a perty peice,, U make the breakdown look simple,, i recon the right tools help,,hope all is well,,

doubledfire: im thinking of getting one very soon do they usually come with a cleaning kit and mallet? plz reply

Drumaboiiii: my revolver is frozen the cylinder does not spin. i am trying to separate the barrel from the rest of the gun but the pipe that the wedge sits in is rusted together any ideas on how to separate?

martin ohara: Enjoyed the video on the break down but the nipple prick. Or the tool you use to drive out the wedge. Where can I buy it? And /or if I can't get one what can I use instead without tearing up the finish.

smd482000: well got qustion my doesn,t fire all the time Iam useing # 10 caps is thier better caps I even use a small of tubing to make tigher fit still I take mine as a back up gun its loaded all deer season the lat dat I fire my fint lock and my cap and ball, I wear mine on a shoulder holser under my coat ! thanks

nosferatu135: Thanks for video! It´s impossible to learn how to remove barrel&cylinder just from original instruction-to-use-booklet.

Howard Teets: No you have to buy seprate,

yelllowbowtie55: For what its worth a proper field removal of the barrel is to rotate the cylinder half way between holes and use the ramrod to push agaist the cylinder once the wedge is out and barrel will slide right off. Always try to avoid hitting it with a hammer. But thats just my two cents

doubledfire: do you have a winchester or a henry? that would make another great vid.

tsafa1: I can't tell you how grateful I am that you posted this video showing how to take this gun apart. I knew about the pin, I did not know I had to use a mallet on it. I have been going crazy thinking I missed a screw. Please change the title in this video and tags to read "breaking down an 1851" or "cleaning 1851". I had to go though a lot of videos until I found yours. Thanks again.

dellandjanis: Hi, Youve been a great help. I am wondering why the wedge pin sets flush on the right and sticks out so far on the left side of the pistol?

Howard Teets: This is a good tip Thank you very much. I had never thought of it. Thanks Again, Morg.

Howard Teets: Now you know how to do it. Enjoy

Howard Teets: Your wedge may have a screw to remove on the wide end. Also the gun if it is new will be harder but it will come out.

Howard Teets: Don't know for sure but I would bet after the wedge is worn a little you should be able to push the wedge out by hand.

SuperBlackmill: can you buy these if you are under 21?

Howard Teets: It will wear down each time you take it apart. If it is that dificult to take apart you can use emery paper or a nail file and remove even amounts from each side until it fits in easier. You are going to get scratches anyway.

Robert C. Walters: @csgtfaught you can get one from dixie gun works. they have them there

Colin V: How much powder would u suggest using since this has a brass frame?

dellandjanis: I am having a awful time removing the wedge. Any tips?
