    Never heard of C&B pistols from them but they made bolt action sporting rifles based on the 98 mauser action.

    I had one years ago and liked it. Should have kept it but it went away on a trade.

    They were extremely accurate revolvers, right out of the box!

    I have one. The 1863 model has a blanket approval from the SAC committee.

    Not QUITE as good as my friend's Hahn tuned gun, but off a rest it will keep them all in the 9 ring or better. So I know that if I don't break all the clays, it's me.

    Having handled a variety of repros and shot some, it is in my opinion one of the better ones out there, just not often seen.

    Only downside is it has a rather oddball nipple. Even a no. 10 cap is a teeny bit loose. One of these days I will get around to finding what the thread size is and if I can replace them but as they aren't shot out (see below) I just give them a tiny pinch before seating.

    Mine does best with a very light charge of 10 gr of 3f, filler, and a .457 ball. Does 'ok' with 24 gr, a rather standard charge.

    EN Santa Barbara New Model Army 1858

    Back about over 10 yrs ago, when I was looking for information about accurate 1858 Remingtons, I used to look into the available information about various makers of the replica Remingtons, as to their accuracy, workmanship,quality etc. A source for that are the various European competition shooting circles. I came across a few articles about the Spanish made Santa Barbara Rems and have bookmarked some links, etc. Most of those links are no longer available, all except for a few,.....this one in which a Spanish commenter, named Octogonal, shares what he know about the Santa Barbara '58 Rem

    Also, here are a few articles dated 2012, written in Spanish and Google translated ,...have great pictures too.The last link is the index page which links to pages with details about loads, original revolvers,cleaning & handling revolvers in competitive shooting, etc.
