Uberti 1849 .31 caliber Wells Fargo
« on: November 14, 2020, 04:47:36 PM »
Howdy everyone,

Just acquired one of these little beauties. Nowhere ....well I cant find anything on it except proof marks. Who would have imported it? Stoeger? I would think they would have it marked? It is unfired and not a mark on it, but no box or paperwork. Anyone with the box and paperwork willing to sell? Have to find some round balls or conicals and see how she does! Locks up tight and is crisp!

If you can get "0" buckshot, it will measure .320" diameter and make perfect roundballs for the .31 caliber percussion revolver.
Hornady used to make "0" buckshot and sell it in 5 lbs. boxes, but does not list this size on their homepage currently...

I have one I bought second hand, no box or paperwork either.  It has a silver guard and backstrap and serial #00135, imported by Canadian Arms Corp. roll stamped on the top flat of the barrel, in the early 70's.  Mine shoots buck shop nicely, but I have a replacement cylinder for it in  .32 S & W and that is really fun to shoot.
