I have Slix-Shot nipples on my Uberti Walker and they work great on it too.

I would be inclined to leave it as-is and use something else as a shooter.

Most here say the same thing. Maybe I'll just purchase a Pietta 1851 from Cabela's and shoot that instead. No arbor problem with those.
Hi Creek - I agree with the quotes above.  Keep that beautiful rare baby pristine.  Get a Pietta 1851 to shoot like crazy and thereby eliminate any concerns over tradeoffs or conflicts of judgment. 

I have had a Pietta 1851 since 1996 [BH] and it is still shooting great, it always has.   I love that thing. 
Your 2nd Gen. is a really beautiful piece.  Nice picture of it too.


Thanks G Dog. I have had a lot of "conflicts of judgment" in the past when it comes to my cap and ball revolvers. I'll take your advice to heart.
