CORRECTION Looking for a UBERTI 1851 NAVY cylinder, 45 Colt


Recommended Posts

Turns out my pard didn't know which one he had

Since I can type I've been asked by pard to see if anyone has one of these they wish to sell.

 

or can someone steer us to a place that would have them for sale

 

Much grass,

So it's one of the factory conversion? Very different animal.

thanks Goody,

 

after he sent me a picture it's like horses and zebras.  He was told incorrectly at the gun shop and never had a reason to question the sales guy.

Went on and ordered the part--now comes the waiting.

 

I'll go reload for Sat's match

 

all the best,

What part did you order? I don't believe the 1851 navy conversions come in 45 colt. Only in 38 special as far as I know. Or is it one of those "man with no name" conversions?

OK, glad I could help(?). I'm still not sure of what he is trying to accomplish. If he has a factory conversion 1851 it is almost assuredly in 38sp. Not only that but the frame is stepped on the 45, just like on the cap and ball 44's. Might need some more clarity as to what he is starting with and where he wants to end up.

I should have mentioned he blew up the cylinder when he bought some reloads at a gun show.  Took out 3 top chambers.  Gunsmith declared the rest of the gun to be fine.

Its not my business but those guns are not strong and should be shot with something less than factory loads.   Most persons outside of cowboy action shooting are usually loading them on the hotter side.   Bullett 19707

 

totally agree

we pretty much use mouse fart loads in all our cowboy guns.  

not worth the danger to the firearms and wear and tear on our over 70 year old wrists

+ more fun without the recoil
