If nothing else, it is a beautiful revolver. Love the civilian model, hate the attachable stock screws and recoil shield cut outs on my "military" version.

That kinda sucks, Richard. I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Hi, I learned today that pretty doesn't always win the race. The rain stopped long enough that I was able to test shoot my new Uberti 1860 Civilian using a Taylor .45 Colt conversion cylinder. The handloaded ammo used was 250gr Laser Cast and 4.7gr BA-10. The action is smooth as silk, but the revolver shot using a two hand hold from 25yds 11" high, 1" to the right. The group was excellent, ~2", but I have never had a BP revolver shoot so high. It would take major sighting surgery to properly regulate this revolver.

This Uberti 1860 Civilian revolver sure is pretty, but would make for a difficult to use shooter. It will join my revolver display in the living room. Too bad. It looks like the Uberti fluted 1860 revolver I bought used from Bruce will be my Uberti 1860 goto shooter.

Regards,
Richard

Hi, the arbor button has been filed down to produce a barrel/cylinder gap of 0.0025" with conversion cylinder.



It looks like rain for the next few days so it may be a while before I can shoot the new Uberti 1860 Civilian.
