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.

Every time I look at this, I am so impressed with the outstanding workmanship that has gone into it.

Silver plating is an option at Uberti, as shown on the factory site. I'd worry how plating would hold up.

When I saw their picture of the solid silver '66, I first considered electroless nickel to get a similar effect, then my mind drifted off to aluminum and a lightweight '66, then I decided gunmetal would do.

I do wish Uberti offered the lighter rifle barrel contours originally available. At least with the '73 you can pick the half found to reduce the nose heaviness in the 24" models. Taylor's said Uberti won't fit such to a '66, even though the parts interchange. Neither does Uberti offer a half magazine. The Miroku replicas use a contour much lighter than the originals and balance nicely for me, but they are out of production. I'll keep my eyes open for one used.

 :)  M.T.  :D

I am right there with ya.  However, my preference is for the chambering to be 44 Russian.  Heck, I'd even settle for the Brass to be Nickel Plate.  Some kind of tasty you betcha.

check my reply 2# above
Thanks greyhawk i read your post also i think brownells has one. I'm kind of wanting a used one to sort of match my barrel's look. A new nicely blued mag tube next to a 100 year old barrel wouldn't look right. The one on my gun now has most all the bluing off it and has turned yellowish/brown. Nothing i can't live with, but if i can find a used one in decent shape i'd go for it.
