VTI - they're Ubertis, after all.

PLUS ONE too St. George.

YEP.  Tiz true.  The second and third "generation" of "Colt" BP guns were built from Uberti parts.  Best selection would probably be from VTI Gunparts.  You can also source Uberti parts from Taylors & Co. as well as Cimarron F.A.

Bob,

Fairly close.  Sort of.  Maybe.  Cap-N-Ball, an overseas contributor once mentioned he installed an original 1851 Colt Barrel assembly on a Uberti, and on a 2d Gen Uberti/Colt.  I never really had opportunity nor reason to check the fit of Nipples nor internal Lock Works.  Can't comment there.  Springs will interchange.  Beyond those items, yer on yer own  :D

On the original 1860 I re-built as a franken-gun, I was able to use a few Uberti parts but most of my parts came off a Centaure parts gun.
