Uberti 1866 Musket

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a Uberti 166 Musket, complete with bayonet. I've never seen one before, except for originals. When did Uberti make these?

They still make them but it can take a year to get a new one from Uberti.

Nickle City is on the money.

 

Neat gun, I regret not buying the one I saw for sale some years back.

 

They made them in 44-40 Win & .45 Colt.

I think it's a pretty cool little gun. Can SASS add bayoneting as a sub category?

Bayonetting is fun...did it at a reenactment once. They had canvas seabags filled with straw and hung up. It's very good exercise. It's like a punching bag but you can be so much more agressive.

I've had one for years...its a great gun and even greater conversation piece.  With the bayonet (aka period correct anti sweep/break 170 device...you will smack something before you do either!) it's a blast to shoot.  It doesn't matter since SASS won't let us load the thing to the max but I'm fairly certain it will hold 15+ 45LCs.

 

Now as for rules/regulations we had a discussion on this a few months back.  There's nothing wrong with shooting SASS with the bayonet.

The 1866 musket in .45 Colt holds 13, uses the same mag tube as the 24" rifles.  The 1873 musket has a longer barrel and mag tube and holds 15 IIRC.
