ASM 1849 parts
« on: January 18, 2015, 12:49:20 PM »
My wife's 1849 needs parts. Being an ASM, some of the parts are no longer available, which leaves me the option of trying Uberti or Pietta aprts and modifying them. A job I dread. It may be easier just to buy her a new Uberti. I've tried all the usual parts places, including VTI.

Pietta parts were the closest match for my ASM 1860.  Had to fit some here and there but nothing was a major overhaul.   I replaced all the internals on mine.

It's not that hard of a task, EM. I've had to hand-fit a number of parts on several of my ASP's and ASM's in the past. If you use the old part as a template you get there pretty quickly.
