Uberti 1858 Remington .44 Revolver Conversion Cylinder

This conversion cylinder converts steel frame Uberti 1858 remington revolvers from .44 black powder to .45LC/.45Schofield smokeless ammunition. Taylor's does not recommend shooting ammunition rated above 850 fps in this conversion cylinder. Reloading/loading is done by removing the cylinder and then removing the cylinder cap from the cylinder. The cylinder contains 6 firing pins retained by threaded doughnuts. The cap is reinstalled by lining up the hole in the cap with the silver guide pin on top of the cylinder. If shooting black powder ammunition the firings pins must be removed and cleaned to avoid corrosion. The finish option of fluting is available to have flutes cut into the body of the conversion cylinder or to have a smooth cylinder with no fluting. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

Fit and function in my old Lyman (Uberti) was perfect. The quality 4 star is a subjective value. While the machining is excellent the design does not break the edges at plane intersections and this can make the cylinder uncomfortable to handle with bare hands. Perhaps a low cost option to break edges could be offered. That said, if accuracy proves adequate I plan to purchase another. Maybe get a local machine shop to round some edges. (Posted on 7/7/2019)

After stories I heard of the need to make adjustments to a blackpowder revoIver to make some conversion cylinders fit, I was a little worried about the fit of a conversion cylinder in my 1858 Remington revolver. Being Taylor products, both my Remington revolver and the conversion cylinder, there weren't any problems. The cylinder fit perfect. You can't beat Taylor produces. (Posted on 5/24/2019)
Beautiful piece Review by Markdam

Beautiful piece work flawlessly went right into the revolver I loaded six shots I know I know I know only 5 but I was firing right then at the range which brings me to it would be nice to have an in-between Notch to drop the hammer like the percussion cylinder but I digress the piece was beautifully made the only problem I had was when tilted sideways if the cap could fall off right before you loaded it it seems like the interference fit was loose for the cap other than that it worked flawlessly. I fired it from a brand new revolver that I hadn't even shot black powder from. (Posted on 5/23/2019)

I purchased this 45 Colt conversion cylinder to use in my Taylor's Uberti Remington 1858 NMA revolving carbine. Cylinder is high quality, a perfect fit and dropped right in. Indexes and locks up perfect! At some point, I'll add a Uberti 1858 Remington NMA revolver so I can utilize the conversion cylinder in that as well. I would not hesitate to purchase another one and can highly recommend them to those that want to do a conversion to cartridge and yet keep the cap and ball option. I've been shooting BP for 55 years and one of these was on my "bucket list" for a long time - couldn't be happier and highly recommend them! Thanks! (Posted on 3/7/2019)

Hears you could convert a black powder. 44 to a cartrage .45 and wasn't sure the gun could handle it. Finally got to the range with it and it fired flawlessly with Winchester. 45 cowboy loads. Only issue I had was brass sticking in the cylinders but it does with almost any .45 (except my Schofield for obvious reasons) so I was very impressed and may even pickup an extra one just to cut down on loading times! The only thing that might make these better is if they came with a small rod got pushing out the cartrages. (Posted on 9/24/2018)

I had to wait until I actually had a chance to use the cylinder and I have to say I'm impressed. This is a very high quality unit that fit my revolver (Armi San Paulo) perfectly without any fitting . I make all of my own ammo and my 45 Colt handl loads worked flawlessly. I wanted this cylinder in particular because I didn't want to grind up my gun to fit a loading gate and this fit the bill (Posted on 7/8/2018)

Fired a blank load which I will be using the cylinder for. What a great high quality product from Taylor's and co!I will be starting a collection from Taylor's and co! I collect these antique revolvers as a hobby just to fire blanks loads just for the experience of firing antique firearms rather than target shooting.These are of the highest quality that you could possibly ask for when it comes to antique replica firearms!Taylor's and co is the BEST way to go for superior service and quality! These conversion cylinders for cap and ball revolvers are of perfect fit and finish!I give Taylor's and co and their products a 5STAR rating every time!!!!! (Posted on 4/15/2017)

A bit pricey but it works wonderfully. Drops right in, fired every time, at least for the first 400 rounds. No more black powder gunk and cleanup. With this conversion I'll end up shooting my 1858 much more often. That's why I bought it. Overall I'm very pleased. Fine finish that matched my Uberti very well. (Posted on 1/17/2017)

I acquired a Uberti revolver carbine as a gift from my son and I obtained a conversion cylinder from Taylor's. The cylinder dropped right in and fits perfectly with correct timing and lock up. The cylinder is finished nicely, no proof or tooling marks and very good even bluing. If you are looking for quality black powder products and excellent customer service this is the place to be.
