Default Uberti 1858 Remington on sale for $189

I know some of you don’t have access or want access to Facebook but the Tanner Sport Center located in Pennsylvania is having a sale on Uberti 1858 Remington’s. The price for me was $189 plus $25 for shipping and a $5.67 charge for using credit not cash. So the final out the door price is $219.67. The lowest price I could find anywhere else is $339. I own a Pietta 1858 that I bought on sale at Cabela’s for $199. Ubertis have always had a premium. Some argue that the Uberti is better made. I did find this on the Firingline Forum:

Uberti comes with a dovetailed front sight, Pietta does not.
Uberti comes with a crowned barrel, Pietta does not.
Uberti does a better finish job on the face of the bullet ram.
Uberti does a better finish job polishing the inside of the trigger guard.
Uberti blues the internal components and trigger.
Uberti has double crossed lines of engraving on the hammer spur; Pietta has single.

You can’t order online. I would give them a call tomorrow morning when they open as they had 92 instock about a day ago. I ordered mine this morning. They took my name off an email I sent and I called with the credit card information around noon.

Good luck!

I've been wanting one of these in 5.5" blued or stainless. I'd like the carbine version too.

Unfortunately, these are the 8 inch blued barrel versions.

Uberti made the Colt Signature Series guns for Colt back in the 1990's.

The Walker dragoon was for many decades the most powerful repeating pistol that had been made in numbers rather than custom made. Until the .357 magnum from S&W. The Uberti Walkers are $390 now at Dixie Gun Works. 58 grains black powder, .454".

I bought mine used defarbbed (modern lettering removed) for less than a new one would cost in the muzzleloadingforum.com classifieds.

Those Uberti genuine Colts had no modern lettering, The words were all as original. They were gen 2 and made in I believe the 1970s for a couple years or so. The Uberti signature series was also, they came around 10 years later I think.

Just ordered one on a whim for $214.67 off gunbroker. I'm a complete newbie to BP. Anyone want to provide a link to ammo they'd recommend I start with? Thanks!

Pyrodex Pistol, Hornady 0.451" lead balls, percussion caps, and .44 caliber Wonder Wads.

https://www.midwayusa.com/product/25...package-of-100

I can't remember whether #10 or #11 caps should be used with pistols. One type is a little stronger/tighter so it won't come off after firing and jam the cylinder. You don't have to worry about it if you have a single shot rifle/pistol. I doubt there is a difference since pistol caps will also work on a rifle. Seems like it would be easier to just make pistol caps and mark them either #10 or #11.

Thanks OP. I’ve been thinking of getting a Remington 1858 replica to go with my Pietta 1860. This is a great deal on the Uberti version!

Came to $224.97 with $20 for shipping and without the cash discounted price they display on GB. Even with the $10 price increase that couldn’t be passed up.

This stupid thread has caused such a massive run on these that the seller jacked up the price $10.

Looks like he is selling 20-30 a day so it will not last.

....buy hey, thanks, as now I have to pay $10 more on this thing I have been procrastinating on plus I have to do it now before he runs out of them.

These have actual sold prices of $324-$350 so if it is on you bucket list this is a smoking deal!

......just wish you did not start this thread as it has cost me $10 more thanks to you!

I'm still on the fence whether to get one or two. It's a great deal but I have a Ruger Old Army.

They have to have more than 92 of them than they stated. There was a run of them on the black powder revolver enthusiast group on Facebook too. What makes this price attractive is that you can get the conversion cylinder and have a cartridge gun at a decent price. I hope they can keep selling them in June. I would like to have a pair of them.

Midway has them for $269 and free shipping. So about $459 total. Not cheap but kind of nice to have.

An inveterate tinkerer, I always accurize my .44 C&Bs by reaming the Cylinder with a 29/64" (.453) reamer and use .456 Bullets or .457 Balls to ensure that they engage the rifling fully - the recommended .451 balls tend to be a bit loose in the bore. I also ream the barrel throat with a Brownell's 11* Revolver reamer.

Upon reassembly, the cylinder would not go back as easily as my Pietta's and took a little while to figure out that the hand/pawl protruded a bit too much and required a tool (punch) to push the hand/pawl into the frame to allow the cylinder to fit back in. I think I will secure an extra hand/pawl and play with it a bit.

I think this deal is dead. But Cabela’s has a good sale on almost all of their Pietta black powder revolvers.

https://www.cabelas.com/catalog/brow...ordsPerPage=18

The Pietta 1858 has a slight bigger frame and thicker barrel. Quality seems close to the Uberti. The price is $219. They do charge sales tax but the shipping is free. Time for one of the Cabela’s coupon codes. Haha

Mine came in early in the week, but I was out of state. My wife sent a picture of the box/shipping label with a text that said “NOW what did you buy?” My reply was simple - That’s a gun baby! Weeeee!

Anyhow, quick shipping. The shipping box and the gun box were both kinda beat up, but the gun is fine. She’s a beauty.

Initial impression is that the quality and details are a little better than the Pietta 1860. The action feels great and the trigger is decent. It’s all cleaned up and ready to shoot. After I run some errands I’ll go out back and shoot it some this afternoon.

Mine broke after loading the third ball. I didn't even get to shoot it.

Mine broke there on the first try.... My Walker is no problem... The design is weak on the 1858 there and they sell harded replacements aftermarket... U also have to start the ball then realign to make a strait push.... I bought a hand push t rod then got smart and ordered a cylinder load press made for the colts and rem. Just remove ur cylinder every time you go to reload it. This design is so much better than all the others because you can remove the cylinder very easily. there's a little trick to putting the cylinder in and out and that is to rotate it clockwise when looking from the back of the pistol and push down to remove it and then come in from the top side and press down to load it as you're slightly rotating it in the clockwise position you have to move the small lever that interrupts the cylinder and activates the Pawl. I hold the pistol so that the butt is facing to my right and Trigger is to my left when I'm inserting or removing the cylinder. I bought two of these and I can reload cylinders much faster just popping them out and loading them on my press. Because of the week design I haven't even bothered ordering a replacement instead I ordered a press done

Sorry about that. Tanner’s and Uberti have excellent customer service. Do not hesitate to call them. I have yet to fire mine.

I just got back from the range today.Over the last month I've had mine I've already gone through three hundred balls+ and I still have part of a box left on my 4th. I was hitting the hundred-yard gong and smoking the close gongs. My wife could shoot them better than her H & K at the 25-yard targets. But the Walker is just oddball powerhouse... Caps keep getting it jammed up, where as the 1858 is a real usable sidearm.

haha
Mine also broke with the 3rd ball in exactly the same place.
I called Uberti and they promised me to ship a new part.
But I admit it's rather disappointing. What's the problem to make it thicker and hardened?

Can I share your photo to a black powder revolver group that also bought a few pistols? I am curious if they have problems too. There is three people on Calguns with the same problem.
