Remington Desperado revolver .44
Remington Desperado is a target version of legendary American revolver Remington 1858. It was thought up and designed in Poland. It was created as a result of close cooperation with the Italian factory Davide Pedersoli – the manufacturer of the best black powder firearm replicas in the world.
Remington Desperado is distinguished by the excellent quality of the used materials and individual excellent fitting of its parts, which increases its durability and accuracy.
All parts as the barrel, frame and cylinder are signed by Davide Pedersoli and each of them has serial number.
Of course the revolver has proof marks.
When designing the construction and finish of this replica, we relied on our 17 years of experience in shooting with black powder firearms.
Unlike mass-produced revolvers the hammer, trigger and other internal mechanisms works perfectly, which leads to excellent accuracy.
The cylinder has beryllium with a small diameter of ignition holes - 0.7 mm. Their structure improves the sealing and the effectiveness of the cap firing.
The cylinder fits perfectly with cylinder stop and the gap between the barrel and the cylinder is made between 0,05mm and 0,15mm.
Remington Desperado is one of the few revolvers in which the diameter of the chambers is equal to the diameter of the barrel in the grooves.
As a result, the ball exiting the chamber is perfectly matching the thread.
The second, thicker, raw pair of walnut grips are included. They can be finished according to individual preferences. This is a solution for people with large hands.
The revolver is sold in a professional case made of thick polymer with a sponge filling that perfectly protects the revolver.
