You will probably prefer the Pietta over Uberti, then.

Nice Rogers and Spencer! 1993 gun. Armi San Paolo?

The only dig I have is that the TG seems to have quite a few tool marks, unlike the rest of the pistol which looks great.

I find it interesting that the top of the TG is not continuous. I guess I have not paid much attention to these guns.

I have also read that some folks say that the load lever retaining screw is somewhat fragile.

They don't seem to give those pistols away!

This is a old thread, but Anson Morgan makes them. Here's some info

I think they're closed on Thursday. I bought one of his but he had to alter it slightly. He claims different guns have different size holes around the nipple. So ask about that when you order. I live close by, so I just went over with the gun and wrench seeing how I had bought both from him. If I remember he just took a file to the outside diameter so it would fit down in. I thought the nipples were in so tight that I couldn't get them to loosen and didn't want to f@@k something up. I figured if anyone was going to it was him. He fixed it in about 3 minutes.

Thanks for the reply. I shoot only Remingtons, other than my Parker and Lefever shotguns. Thankfully, I kept my jigs for lightening the triggers on the .44cal Army's. When I shot at Friendship all my trigger pulls were measured around a pound or less. It's not what I'd do now, but I do like a light pull with no creep. So it sounds like both are guns ok to buy, each with their good and bad points. The local muzzleloading gun show is coming up in another week - I'll have to attend this year and see what's available.
The Pietta Remingtons are larger than the Ubertis, which are more to original scale. Heavier, too. Depends on if you have large or small hands, really. I prefer the more original sized ones over the Piettas; have several of both flavors.
