Unless that is your only BP gun, I concur with the guys who suggest 'parking it' and shooting a garden variety Pietta instead. The GU guns are pretty rare and the value seems to climb each time I see one listed. As you know, Uberti parts are NOT 'drop-in' fit and for that reason alone I would leave it alone and shoot something else.
Just my .02.

Hi Kirk, Did your 3-screw revolver have the brass backstrap?

Yes, it did. It was a brand-new Pietta 3 screw with some of the nicest bluing I've seen. I sold it less than 3 weeks after purchase but it was one I regretted selling from the minute it left my hands, even though I made a couple bucks on the deal.
Some things are worth more than money.

You'll get over it. I did.
Oh, BTW I agree about the 3-screw civilian. One of the sales I wish I never made.

My employer recently announced a new move to "improve the company by investing in our people." They took the first step today by giving us all a tube of lip balm with the company's name on it.
My...that was awful generous! :(

In addition to the half fluted 1860 I also bought another one since then.  I sent it to Texas to have some work done.   More on that when I get it back. you've piqued my interest.

Our BP range doesn't open up until some time in May depending on flood conditions.
You can look forward to at least one good report...I have two unfired Dragoons to break in plus Goon's Army...

Not a good thing IMHO.

I seem to recall an employee or member of the family that makes Pietta guns posting on various black powder boards a few years ago. I'm sure Hawg or Fingers McGee will remember him too.

I recall the same.
