    I can only find a black powder version of this gun. Does anyone know where I can get a gun just like this using today's ammo? I just like it for it looks, and would never actually use it for defense. I just want to shoot it for fun but not deal with black powder. Thanks

    Most of the guns that have that shape are powder. You could go with an old cowboy gun like the Colt SAA :

    The SAA shoots .45LC as well as a couple other calibers, IIRC>

    Uberti makes a ton of replica firearms in that style.

    I'm not aware of anyone making an 1858 Remington Conversion in stainless steel. However, you could buy a stainless cap and ball 1858 and get a stainless conversion cylinder for it.

    I have no idea how well theses conversion cylinders work or how convenient they are to use. I do know they are really damned expensive for what they are. They are also limited to shooting cowboy ammunition (low power ammo for competition).

    That's ok, like I said it's just for fun. If anything goes down at night I go to my 1911 :cool:
