Uberti 1858 Remington .44 Revolver Stainless Steel Conversion Cylinder

This conversion cylinder converts stainless steel 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.

I started buying more black powder so I would not risk Felony charges while visiting my friends. We shoot a lot and nothing makes your gun more accurate than practice. I could take a black powder across states legally and then join my friends for a day of practice without a dark cloud over my head. A true "drop in" unlike some other brands that require fitting in order to function. Keep up the quality Taylor and I'll always buy your products. (Posted on 3/9/2019)

I purchase the SS version for my SS Uberti 1858 C&B revolver. While I really enjoy shooting black powder this gun sat in the safe most of the time as no local indoor ranges allow black powder. This cylinder allows me to shoot indoors with smokeless catridges.

I did have to do a little filing to allow the new cylinder to cycle freely. It was very minor and not a big deal as this was a stainless gun to start with.

I would recommend to anyone wanting to shoot their C&B more often. (Posted on 12/21/2015)

The quality of this cylinder is equal to the quality of the revolver. Once installed it looks like it came from the factory that way.
The tolerances are very tight, the cylinder gap is incredibly small.
The indoor range near my house does not allow black powder, so using this cylinder I can shoot at my favorite range using smokeless cartridges.
You will notice the limit of 850 fps listed, this is in no way a handicap. Put a 255gr. lead slug at 800 fps and this is not a plinker. On the other hand a 200gr slug at 638 fps is, if you want it.
The revolver is such an excellent shooter it's a shame it limit it to just cap-n-ball, this gives you a choice.
Lower velocity loads will simply drop out with a shake of the cylinder, the hotter loads will need to be pushed out. A wooden dowel or even a pencil comes in handy.
I highly recommend getting this cylinder, you wont regret it.
