No Show, it should hold ten .357's and at least that many .38's depending on length.  I'm wondering how you posted but still show zero posts.  :huh:

Both the .357 and .45 versions are listed as 10+1 on Uberti's Website. It doesn't show the .44 mag or .44-40 as currently available with an 18" barrel.

 

Forty five Colt, .357 mag, .38-40, and .44-40 are all within .020" in case length, and .38 spl & .44 spl are only .005" different. Overall lengths are listed as 1.59" for .357 and 1.60" for .45 Colt, so only .010" difference, or a tenth of an inch in a magazine of ten.

Right... So what's it chambered in and what is he going to be shooting? 

 

38, 357, 45... It kind of matters if he wants to know stock capacity.

Stock capacity of the 18" .357 and .45 Colt 1873's are both listed as 10+1 on Uberti's Website. Since the '73 isn't chambered in .38 spl, there is no stock capacity for that cartridge listed, but the 19" 1866 .38 spl is also listed as 10+1. I suppose the capacity of a given rifle could possibly be 11+1 with a shorter bullet or modified spring and/or end cap.

The numbers on Uberti's site are too low. While both my .45 rifles are listed 10+1 the 19" carbine holds 11+1 and the 20" short rifle holds 12+1 using stock springs and factory ammo Magtech Cowboy Action Loads 250gr (haven't measured OAL yet).
