It depends on what you really want. The 1858 new Army (aka 1858 Remington) has a top strap on the frame making cylinder removal a little easier. The 1860 Army and 1851 Navy are fun shooters. If you want a really nice one - save up for a Uberti 1847 Walker.

BTW, all of them go on sale periodically. If you're patient you can pick them up for a lot less than Cabela's regular price.

Good luck

They all load basically the same way, all are fairly accurate when you find the right powder load and pretty similar when it comes to cleaning.

Cleaning after shooting BP isn't optional. But it's not hard. Hot soapy water is your friend. Keep them clean and coated with CLP or Ballistol between shooting and they will stay in great shape.

But be very careful - they multiply!

Keep your eyes open for a used Ruger Old Army in good shape. They are no longer in production but are built like a modern hand gun but with a cap and ball cylinder.

True that. Ruger Old Army pistols are in a class of their own.
