The Cabelas Catalog line of Pietta revolvers is limited to the Cap & Ball style of revolver, which is not considered a firearm by the BATFE and is thereby OK to ship by mail without the same restrictiuons as a cartridge revolver.

Pietta does make a large variety of 1873 "Colt Peacemaker" style cartridge revolvers chambered in .45 Colt, ,357 Mag & also .44-40. These are intended for cowboy action shooters, and you need to do more research to see if these models are safe to use with full-power ammunition, or the Cowboy Action ammo, which is loaded to black powder pressure levels.

Do a Google search for the Pietta.USA website to find a catalog of everything they make.

Please look right above the reloading ram rod. On a 1858 there is an a rod that you can pull out to remove the cylinder. On a Spiller and Burr there is a screw. Also where you put the ball in to be rammed on the 1858 is open and the Spiller and Burr is closed on the far side. We do not carry a spare cylinder for the Spiller and Burr, but Pietta 1858 New Army .36 Caliber Revolver Spare Cylinder, Item: IK-215113, is the 1858 spare cylinder.

Hold your revolver with the muzzle end facing to your right. You are now looking at the right side of the revolver.

Can you see all the way through the forward end of the frame where the ball is placed so the ram can seat it? If you place a ball there in preparation to seat it, is it possible for it to go all the way thru & fall out the other side?

Also, is there a screw head you turn in order to remove the cylinder pin and loading lever & ram all as a single unit?

If YES to both of these questions, yours is the Spiller & Burr.

If you can unlatch the ram lever, let it drop, then slide out the cylinder pin & if you can see thru the forward end of the frame by the ram (& drop a ball all the way thru, then yours is the 1858 Remington.
