The closed framework also provided greater structural rigidity.. Another advantage was the ability to remove the entire drum and put on a new one, already loaded.
The Remington Model 1858 was William F's favorite weapon. cody's "Buffalo Bill". A copy of this weapon, which belonged to Will, can be seen at the Remington Arms Company headquarters along with a handwritten note by him that reads: "I carried and used this old Remington revolver for many years, in wars with Indians and for killing buffalo. And it has never let me down." It is worth noting that Bufallo Bill was so attached to his gun that he used it even after the advent of more modern revolvers with a compound cartridge. The source of this attachment can be traced to the high accuracy and knock-down power of this revolver. The projectiles fired from the Remington 1858 were capable, depending on the quantity and quality of the gunpowder used, of achieving significant exit velocities, from 168 to 393 meters per second or more. In comparison, the initial velocity of a bullet fired from a P-64 pistol, is 305 meters per second.
