i shoot (all repros) an m1861 springfield(euroarms), a sharps carbine(armi san marco) and berdan infantry rifle(armi sport), both paper cutters, and a colt army revolver. the craftsmanship is superb on all of them. if were just starting out, i'd go with the remington instead of the colt, simply because it's easier to swap cylinders. unlike smokeless, you MUST be rigorous about cleaning. have fun!
