My 1858 Remington is on the way! Wooooo-hoooo!
Wednesday, October 11, 2006

Yeah, I know they say Mal's gun is based on a Taurs 86 or somesuch, but I like the look of the Uberti Millenium 1858 Remington Cap & Ball black powder civil-war era revolver. Plus unlike the prop model, this one is a functional working firearm. You can check it out at to see what it looks like. Plus you can buy (from the same site) a conversion cylinder to make it fire Colt .45 long rounds.

I'll post some pics when I get it -- due next week. Let Shinyness prevail!

Oh...there's no "somesuch" about it. Volume One of the OVC for Firefly has a pic of the working prop version of Mal's pistol with it's fake casing split open to show the cylinder inside. The caption below notes the gun is a Taurus 86 .38-calibre snub nose revolver with serious reno work done on its outer casing;)

Still..I be mighty jealous of your Remington. I doubt I could get my hands on one without major hassle due to issues with customs:(

Mei shemma, V8... Did you see the FF soundtrack MP3s I posted at SoCalBrowncoats Yahoo group? I've gpt 19 or so sound clips but only a few are uploaded there. If these are what I emailed, I hope they're workin' Shiny. Also got the BDS and BDM ringtones from past endeavors -- near on 50 total so far.
