Pick up my Pietta Paterson today, this is my second paterson I have owned. The first was a Uberti about twenty five or thirty years ago.
Well if it had been a 1851 or 1860 i would not have picked it up. the quality of finish is below what I would normaly except.
List of thing that will be done over the next month.
1/ strip and clean oil out of the gun
2/ smooth the action
3/ completly trip finish which Black
4/ remove markings from frame and barrel
5/ finish the grips, file marks on one side.
6/ refinsh gun in a blue brown finish
7/ put it back togeather
8/ take it to the range Cheesy This will be the best part.

This gun will be with me for awhile.

No it is surpposed to be a out  of the box ready to go. I would of prefered a kit. Two year wait to arrive in NZ.
The dealer got four i belive tne two i had to choose from were the same.
For a expencive gun they they are not fit for use out of the box.
As a wall hanger fine.
I new i would be tripping the finish off and will add photos when done.

Ok, I was always told a square pin will not go into a round hole. So why have a round cylinder bolt whole and make the bolt retangular.
When the cylinder is out of the gun the bolt will not drop.
Moving house this weekend so no workshop, but next week will strip the gun down and see what other hidden jems i will find. Feels like all internals will need polishing, hope i dont break anything as two years is a long wait fot parts.

I will try and put pictures up as i take it apart, they are not the same as tne later modles.
Pietta only do a run of Patersons when they have enough orders, i placec mine two years ago. I want to trip it down to the white metal and give it a aged look. I also want to shoot it.
As stated we are moving house tomorrow so have not taken it apart except to remove the barrel and cylinder to see why it would not index.
the bolt is rough to say the least and is nkt rounded to fit the cylinder.

Ok, spent today on the Paterson and it is better. All parts needed de burring and polishing, all parts are hard not like most of the Uberties I have.
The parts had all the side which bear on other parts or the frame stoned. Reduced the main spring a bit also. Rounded the bolt a bit but may need more work. There is know way this gun could of been shot in the out of box condition.
The trigger need more work but will do that when i strip it to remove the markings and refinish the gun.

Will report after i have burnts some powder.

Ok.
revisited the Paterson last weekend. Sad Took it to the range and fired ten shots and put it away. The action is not working well at all and it fowls badly even with lub over ball.
Fired caps fall down into the action after ever shot, but the main problem is the bolt.
Took the gun apart today and the bolt does not drop on half cock with the cylinder out, but does most of the time with the cylinder in but it is still draging.Took the recall section of the frame off and the bolt drops every time, as soon as you but the recall shield back on even just holding it on the bolt slips the hammer cam. I can get it to do it with a screw driver placed over were the frame fits. Well  was going to have a go at fixing the issue with a file when the bolt broke at the screw hole so cant do anything till a new bolt is found. Did soften the hammer spring a little tonight witch make it easer to cock.
Well hope to get it shooting again soon.

Mike, are the nipples standard Pietta? Reason I ask is the Uberti Patterson I had about 10 years ago used a nipple with a "cross" pattern instead of the usual parallel sided shoulders. Had to have a machinist friend make me a nipple wrench. Good luck with this project--you appear to be a patient man and I hope that isn't tried to its limit!

Navy six.
Nipples are standed factory fitted, I cant play with nipples until i get the gun action sorted.  Three guns turned up at the importers last year, i saw two of them and neither one had a good action. The second gun is still there i belive.
Will report when i have the bolt.
I may turn out to be an expensive wall hanger.

 Grin Grin Grin
Pietta have come to the party and the bolt tured up today, to give them credit they said they would replace the part and they did.
The part needed no polishing all machine marks gone not like the one tne gun came with.
Pietta are vefy good to deal with as they answer your emails, not like two.

very hapy now gun back togeather.

Thank you Pietta.

Brave man, the Patterson is an overly complicated and delicate gun.  I've got 3, two pietta's and one uberti.  The uberti is the nicest of the three fit and finish wise, but the chamber is out of line with the barrel.  The two pietta's I've got shoot good, but are very poorly finished and action is rough as guts.  I keep saying I'm going to take the pietta down and go through it like your doing, but haven't gotten brave enough yet.

A few years ago I found a Paterson belt model at a local gun shop at what seemed to be a reasonable price.
I picked it up and gave the action a try. It was like a hand full of builders sand had been dumped into the action.
I don't remember who made that particular firearm, but I do remember thinking to myself "what a piece of garbage!"
I had the same thing happen with a repro Whitey .36 cal. Navy revolver. I do remember that that revolver was made by ASM. I wanted a .36 cal. solid frame revolver to use for target shooting within the N-SSA at 25 and 50 yards.
I couldn't bring myself to spend the money on either gun, nor did I want to waist my time to try to make either work for me.
My best,
 Blair
