...That's good to know. I have a .44 Navy that I'm about to take the hack saw to...

Just a suggestion, cut to +/- 5” first. If you don’t like it cut more. I had a 5” that was a dream to carry and shoot.

I concur. That's a very nice group of 1860's.

How does that little snubby shoot? I have one I'm contemplating doing that to.

It shoots remarkably well. With a two handed hold I can hit a five gallon pail better than 50% at 100 yards or a bit more. BUT, I used to shoot everyday. Today it might take me a cylinder or two to walk it into the pail.  Mostly I am shooting my N frame ACP revolvers but shooting is shooting. It all counts.

Some don’t like the stock screws. Apparently construction, sailing and the school of hard knocks have made it so I don’t even notice them. If they bother you, there are remedies.

Been whittling down the group of 1860s and got it down to these.

Yes, since Uberti chose to beef up the frame on the conversions (rather than tell the weenies to suck it up and load the 44 Colt), I wondered if the enlarged frame was carried into the percussion revolvers that used the same frame?

Barrel length varied on originals also.

Thanks for looking.

...Regardless, I will watch any Western except for a few of the old corny ones from the 1950's and 60's...

So I am guessing you never watched “The Terror of Tiny Town”?

Nice looking 1860. I have quite a few Uberti’s and more than a few were imported by Replica Arms in Marietta Ohio.

I am keenly interested if you have noticed any dimensional difference between the old and the new revolvers?

Has something changed on the forum in my absence?  When I log in, the is no longer the shortcut for “new answers to your posts”  and “new post since last visit”.  Or similar phrases, there gone, I can’t clinch on them.

So far so good. I have made a bunch of 3 piece/1 piece grips. If you have any questions, be happy to let you know what works for me.
