Do you know where I could access copies of ordnance returns ? Specifically for the 2nd battalion, 18th infantry for 1866 and companies G and H of the 9th infantry from 74' - 76'.

I wonder if the 7th Cav revolvers from Cimarron still have the old style hammers. Christmas is coming!

I emailed someone from Cimarron back in April or May (I can't recall who answered me I'm afraid). I was told that every Uberti SAA repro/clone/what-have-you was going to have the new hammer, including the Old Model frame guns. Unfortunately, I'm assuming the 7th Cavalry revolver, the Scout revolver, and the U.S.V Artillery revolver will be included.

If anyone knows any differently, please correct me. I'd like to be wrong about this.

Thanks Crow Choker for your input. I should have time today to disassemble the 1851 and look at the bolt etc.. I have several decades shooting Remington types in NSSA regional shoots. With the Rems I have not had to deal with these problems so I am going to be in a learning curve.

The Items I use and sources are listed below. This has been a nearly 20 year journey so I may not be correct on some of the sources. If you check out the Clothing and Equipment thread (http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,33884.0.html) it will have most of the address' for the vendors (some are out of business) All of my equipment has held up pretty well. I've had the shoes resoled and the damned uniform seems to have shrunk while hanging in the closet  Angry Wink but other than that most of the repro's are going on nearly 20 years and are still going strong.

Not sure what the status of A of the 23rd was in regard to testing. All I know for certain was that they tested the trowel bayonet in 1876 and did not recommend it.

  I must say the retracting firing pin (RFP) is something of a boon for Uberti. Now for every revolver they sell with a RFP, they're very likely to sell a trigger and hammer so it can be converted back!

I mean, there's a positive to this new safety - it cut my gun buying habit down by a lot. My wife is pretty happy about it.

I just really wish they had left the 'Old Model' revolvers alone, give people an option. I'll need to grab my .44-40 1875 Outlaw (not calling it a repro Remington out of respect for Coffinmaker's dislike of the term) before they start messing with that hammer as well.
