I was at my favorite gun shop last evening and a lonesome Uberti 1860 Army, followed me home. I think I will keep it...

Wads, Lubes, Patches, Cleaning Supplies, etc / Soap OIl...
« on: August 26, 2014, 02:43:10 PM »
I've been reading about black powder lubricants all over the Internet. One term I keep reading is "Soap Oil..."

Can anyone tell me exactly what "Soap OIl" is?

Patersons / Patterson reproductions.

Are these firearms typical of Uberti made firearms, in that they seem to be very reliable?

Or, have there been experiences of reoccurring small parts breakage. I have heard this in the past. What I don't know is, is if the people making those statements really know what they were talking about.

Navy Models / Uberti/Colt1861 Navy revolver
« on: October 13, 2013, 07:49:35 PM »
I was nosing around a new to me, gun shop today, and I found a new in the box, Uberti/Colt 1861 Navy replica revolver for sale.

That  is not unusual, right? I have seen a lot of Uberti/Colt 1861 Navy replicas before, but this one was cut for a shoulder stock and had the protruding screws on the sides of the frame. Also, this revolver had the 1860 Army grip on it, instead of the smaller 1851/1862 Navy grip.

This gun had never been sold before now. I bought it new today. This is a new gun, not a used gun, where somebody has mixed and matched the parts, as so often happens on a used gun.

Is this an unusual model of the 1861 Navy, or, is it a normal model and I haven't seen one like it before.

I really like the idea of it having shoulder stock capability, and, I just happen to have three shoulder stocks in my inventory.

Army Models / Colt !860 Army shoulder stock
« on: October 12, 2013, 08:28:07 PM »
I just bought, off of FLEABAY, a Uberti 1860 Army engraved shoulder stock.

I have two, Uberti replicas, of the Colt 1860 Army. And, with this new to me, shoulder stock, I now have a shoulder stock for each firearm, if I ever feel the need for that.

I didn't need it, need had nothing to do with it. I just wanted this stock because of the uniqueness of the engraved shoulder stock and it's great condition.

I was fortunate to be walking around with some extra money in my pocket, when I went into a local gun shop and found a unfired 1851 Navy, and an unfired 1861 Navy, in the box, for sale. You can believe me when I say they didn't stay unsold for very long. The 1851 Navy was without the box.

The 1861 Navy is unfired and unturned -- how nice is that?

The 1851 Navy has been turned a very small amount. By using tooth paste I may be able to repolish the extra faint turn marks.

And, the prices were well below market value...! Sometimes, but not too often, everything comes together for the good of a Colt buyer.

Then on FLEA bay, I found four Colt Black powder revolver, presentation cases. Those weren't cheap, but I wanted them. So, I did a buy it now on all four. And, they're here, as type this.

Now, all I have to do is find the accoutrements that Colt put out with the black powder revolvers, when they sold them. Those accoutrements are ubelievably expensive on FLEA bay.

A little later, I was perusing Comarrons's web site, I find that Cimarron is now selling all the accoutrements I will ever need, at good-guy prices. They're reproductions, but what do I care, the prices are right?
