A Question for the Collective Wisdom of the Wire.

Recommended Posts

Short and simple..........

 

Will a Uberti '73 in .44 Special chamber and shoot .44 Russian?

 

 

The Russian will chamber and shoot in a 44 Special chambered '73, however it will not load the Russian from the magazine via the lifter without a modified lifter.

I was happily surprised to find out that my '73 in .45 Colt would work/feed/load/shoot with .45 Schofield rounds. I was just hoping to find out if I could do the same with my new '73 in .44 Special and use .44 Russian.

 

I just happen to know the gent who sells those modified lifters.

 

Or I could just shoot the Russian in the pistols and Special in the rifle.

 

Either way, I'm good.

 

Thanks to all who responded. I do appreciate your time.

Like all the other good answers.

Shoot yes.

But would need modification to cycle short round.

I have a very nice one in Classifieds forsale.

Absolutely will do it, I've got one in the gun safe.

 

It takes a special carrier, that you can get from the Smith Shop.

I might try to seat the bullet out far enough to match the length of the cartridge the lifter is set for
