I'm busy making my own cylinder loader as they seem to be a bit pricey over here .

MLN1963, yeah I noticed those brass framed 1851 colt navy .44 were on sale for $150 at Cabelas. I looked at one a few days ago. They seemed nice and felt comfortable in the hand. Those steel Remingtons appeared a little more stout. Sounds like it is just a matter of preference. I'll be patient and eventually find the right one on sale, not in a hurry. Cabelas appears to have good deals on their BP revolvers pretty often.

Try to get a steel framed gun if you can. They hold up much better. There never was a brass framed .44 cal in the real Colts. The south made the guns from brass during the civil war, because they had a shortage of steel. Colt never made a brass framed gun. Even in .36 cal.

Thanks for the advice and info Muley. I didn't know that bit of history about the Colts.
