After being involved in CAS since around 1989 and having been really into good looking duds I've finally gotten to the point that I don't care what folks wear to the matches.  Steam Punk?  OK,  B Western,  Sure.  Anything is fine.  I just wish I could ditch all that and wear my normal jeans, Redwing chukkas, work shirt, and ball cap.

Hasn't the costuming issue has gotten sorta tiresome?

What Riflee said.

You may need to make an appropriate size flap sander for the inside of the arbor hole in the barrel lug.  I would also suggest, once you eliminate any burrs in the arbor hole, Stick the frame in a padded vise and polish the Arbor to fit.  Using 220 or 320 Wet/Dry strips like plaiting a shoe.  ALL THE WAY AROUND the Arbor.

It was assembled at the factory with a mallet.

Had you not already made the decision, I would have suggested you first pick up and fondle a Remington "BEFORE" you laid out the folding money.  A Remington may well beat holeie ned out of your middle finger, and I would have mentioned the problems with the various cappers.

Whether the the area around the nipple is correct .... or not .... is immaterial.  If you can't cap it with ease, it won't be much fun to play with.  I would most certainly open the nipple recesses to accept my capper of choice.  Although I do understand the Polish Capper works a treat .... for some.  I tried one and didn't like it at all.  Tended to dump it's cap load all over the loading bench.

Best of luck.

I think a company called Polish Cappers makes a capper specifically for Remington's.

I looked on their website and found a video of their using them on both Colt and Remington type revolvers. It is a very different design than the Ted Cash type cappers. i can see why they are more expensive. Looks like you have to order from Europe.

For the last few weeks I have been shooting my 26" oct. barrel Chaparral rifle . The rifle shoots very well with both Bp. and Smokeless powders . Never has it given me any of the horror stories I have read about these rifles having , mine functions flawlessly and is as accurate as any of my original 1876 rifles. Not bragging just stating fact. The only problem I have associated with this rifle is every time I break it out at the ranch someone is trying to get it from me . Aint happening this rifle aint going anywhere . Yep I like my Chaparral ,,,,,,,,DT

I'd be using a pen light to study the barrels hole. If that 61 barrel goes on the other arbors fine then I'd be studying the 61 arbor looking for any scuffs on it where it's rubbing hard. I'd be looking at how the barrel fits at the beginning of the barrels arbor hole when it's on the arbor as far as it can go. There may be a wide spot on the arbor where it's at the beginning of the barrel hole. You can see if the arbor is too tight there. 


Turn the barrel with the bottom lug not hitting the frame and see how far it goes on the arbor. You know like you're checking to see how the barrel may or may not bottom on the arbor.  In that position you can turn and twist the barrel on the arbor and then see if you can find a scuffed mark on the arbor where it's too tight.


Usually the Uberti won't have a bottomed arbor but you still have to consider whether or not the arbor is too long or binding down toward the bottom of the barrels arbor hole.


I'd be guessing there's a wide spot on the end of the arbor or a narrow spot in the bottom of the barrel hole. You could use a black marker to color the arbor where it goes in the barrel and turn the barrel when it's 90 degrees from the frames end and then look for a spot where the black from the marker is worn off.  You could color the very end of the arbor to see if that surface is rubbing by turning the barrel back and forth when it's 90 degrees from the frame end.
