I have a quick question about the repro 1858 Remington .44 cal cap and ball pistols: A few years back I remember some talk about the different makers or brands of repro Remingtons. I had heard that while some are/were full size replicas of the 1858 Remingtons, I also heard at that time that there was one on the market that was sort of scaled down or something. I am not talking about the later Remington Navy model in .36 cal, but a smaller scale, slenderer 1858 Remington .44, like a 3/4 scale or something.
My question is; is that true? Were or are there 1858 Remington cap and ball .44s that are or were built slightly scaled down as opposed to a full sized exact replica? If it is true, who made it or if it is still on the market who makes it? Because I don't want some slender scaled down thing. If I get one I want the full sized, exact size and weight replica.
Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.
