I've been searching for a "deal" on a used Rogers & Spencer conversion cylinder and in the process turned up an interesting bit of trivia from 2008. The conversion cylinder for a Remie also fits in the R&S!! Now, I own a Uberti converted Remie already (gated like original factory re-issue) so I took both guns apart to see how a swap would work. The cylinder alone, fit's and indexes properly, however the bolt on the R&S is a bit too big for the slots. The firing pin/recoil shield is only a few thousanths of an inch too small for the R&S frame. So, with a little judicious filing on the R&S frame and the capping port (to allow a shell to be inserted or removed), creating one screw hole to secure the back plate and changing the bolt to one modified for the Remie cylinder, I can have the best of both worlds for the cost of a new bolt !! Course if I want to shoot bp out of the R&S I have to change the bolt and unscrew the recoil plate.

Uberti stainless steel fluted cylinder 1860 Army that was made in 1983.  Had been used - and a little abused - and needed a little TLC  on arrival; but after cleaning it up and doing a little tweaking, it should shoot alright this weekend.

I haven't got a photo yet (besides, EVERYone has seen these) but I did get a new (for me) Uberti 1860 Army Model.  (With the steel backstrap & shoulder stock fittings.)  It was sold to me as used, but I'm sure from after disassembling it that it was unfired until I came along.  It was made in 1999 (according to the date code) and has NO nasty Italian writing on the barrel and frame like their older models.  This one is basically "de-farbed" with only required inspection stamps but most are out of sight under the under-barrel lever.

It shoots great and very near to point of aim, rather than shooting high as my older (1975 manufactured) 1860 Army does.  Uberti must have listened to CAS shooters, because instead of the regular (and authentic) brass "wedge-type" front sight, this has a small "blade" for the front.  It has the same shape as the front blade on my Open-Top and my 1873 Peacemaker, although it is about HALF the height of my O/T sight which is about half the height of my 1873's front blade sight.  In addition, the wood to metal fit of the grip is 99% of the way to PERFECT - the best I've ever seen on an Italian gun and rivaling the fit on a couple of honest-to-goodness Colt (tm) guns a friend owns!

Kudos ... again to Uberti for #1) making a great gun, & #2) pleasing an Olde Fart BP shooter!

My El Patron and '73 Lever both in .357:





Also a 9422 from '74 and a Rossi 92 in .44mag.

The 1873 lever is a real tack driver with black powder (all I have ever shot in it, except for one round of commercial ammo, also the only bought ammo run through it). The lacquer finish on the wood isn't my kinda thing though so I am gonna put a real oil coat on it. Not sure if I should go with BLO or Tru-oil.
