    Terry,
    Got a request for you.
    If you could do it, please mike out the chamber walls at their thinnest point to the outside diameter of the cylinder and report what you get.
    The reason for asking is that I've been wondering how the modern day replicas measure up versus an original.
    Thanks beforehand if you can.

    That is an awesome score, I'd love to have one of those. One of my customers brought one into the store not long too ago, it was in really bad condition and was still loaded! Looks like she still shoots well too...thanks for sharing.

    For what it's worth, my original Remington .44 came with a spare Pietta cylinder that fits and functions perfectly. I use it when I shoot the revolver.

    Measured a .44 Pietta 1858 on the wall between the chambers and the outside of the cylinder.

    Got 0.075", like a 14% reduction in wall.
