SAA Base Pin Question
« on: August 29, 2020, 09:02:47 AM »
Will an original Colt base pin fit in my Uberti Revolver ? Just wanted to add some authenticity to my BP frame style Revolver and get rid of the safety notch....Thanks

 :)  Depends   ;)  No, not those Depends.  Depends on the base pin and the specific frame.  Some will, some won't.  It's a crap shoot.  HOWEVER:

Chuck up the Uberti Base Pin in a padded vice, take off the last 3/16th of the base pin and seat it fully.  Can't tell it from a Colt and it no longer blocks the hammer fall.  Much much more cost effective than purchasing a Colt base pin.  Don't forget to dress the end for a nice smooth fit.

Thanks , I have a guy sending me one that already has the finish that matches my gun and the black powder era hole in the head. Hopefully it will work. He is allowing me to try it before II send payment ..

I tried the same thing and the Cold did not fit either my Uberti or Pietta guns.

But Uberti basepins fit Pietta on mine.

Just get a pin from Cimarron that doesn't have the safety notch. The last BP frame I got didn't have the safety notch base pin.
