Uberti Lightning

(1/1)

Colt Fanning:
Howdy
Is the Uberti lightning the same size as an original colt?  For reference the Dia. of an original Colt lightning cylinder is 1.375 in.

Coffinmaker:

No.  The Uberti Lightening bears only a passing resemblance.  The Uberti lightening is simply a reduced size SA, with a Thundereresque Grip and Backstrap.

Colt Fanning:
Thanks, guess I won't try to convert one to double action.

I knew a gunsmith who claimed he could repair, build, or modify anything...if you had enough money. Turning a Uberti Lightning into a DA, even with a guy as talented as the one I knew, sounds like a very, very expensive project. No offense intended.

Abilene:
It would probably need the trigger guard enlarged as well as the internal mods.
