I'm looking to get a reproduction. However, there is nowhere near me where I can actually put my hands on one of these, much less shoot it. So I'm hoping a few people here have hands-on experience they can share. I have a few basic questions: does anyone have a bisley/birdshead handled shooter? Do you like it? Right now, I'm looking at 1873 Cattleman's and open-top conversions: anyone know of performance differences between the two? Right now, I'm thinking the pro's of the open-top are that you can swap cylinders to reload. How reliable are they really though, in comparison to the 1873 reproductions? Lastly, I have a very specific question. Has anyone had a chance to try out an 1875 Remmington Outlaw? Did you like it? Have you handled other reproductions, and can you tell me how they compare? Thanks in advance . . .
