Uberti 1860 Army Revolver Conversion Cylinder

This conversion cylinder converts steel frame Uberti 1860 Army 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. Due to the shorter frame length of these revolvers, some .45LC ammunition could be too long for the conversion cylinder if the factory does not follow standard OAL measurements. Reloading/loading is done by removing the barrel and then removing the cylinder cap from the cylinder. The cylinder contains 5 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. This conversion has safety notches cut between each chamber to use when carrying cylinder with all 5 chambers loaded. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

Have uberti Army .44 and this cylinder dropped right in, no modifications. 45 long Colt, very dependable, very accurate. Timing is exact, like a custom fit. Could not be more satisfied with this product. Thank you Taylor (Posted on 10/26/2019)

I ordered this conversion cylinder along with my Uberti 1860 Army revolver and fired some 45 LC blanks through it. It works perfectly and the cylinder fits into the frame with no trouble at all! Taylor's is the perfect place to buy vintage replica revolvers from! Thank you Taylor's! (Posted on 3/17/2019)

I collect vintage replica western style revolvers and fire blanks with them. I tried out my new Uberti Colt M1860 Army with this conversion cylinder. What a great outfit this conversion cylinder is with my new percussion revolver! I am so impressed with these
cellectables! Taylor's & Company takes such great pride in fitting their conversion cylinders with their black powder revolvers! I will always shop with Taylor's! They are great and only sell the very best products! (Posted on 3/10/2019)

I purchased two conversion units for Uberti 1860 Army. One went in my Uberti made Colt signature series revolver and worked great the first time I installed it. The second unit was installed in a CVA 1860 made by arme San Marco, with a small adjustment to the hand and bolt it now works very well. I am very happy with my purchase and would do it again.

I bought the gun with the cylinder 2nd hand for a great deal. It arrived with a lock up issue. (Would lock between chambers, but not in firing position) a little polishing of the bolt solved that, and it shoots great! Now I need one for my Pietta NMA! (Posted on 7/9/2018)

I haven't been able to shoot these but the fit was perfect, the machining beautiful. I can't wait to break these in when I shoot them at Founder's Ranch when the weather warms up!!

I will submit another review after I shoot some metal with them! (Posted on 2/4/2017)

The Taylor's and Co. Conversion cylinder was extremely simple to use and fit my Uberti 1860 army perfectly the first time out. The price, though not cheap, was comparable if not better than other competitors, and the quality was spot on. Very pleased with my purchase! (Posted on 9/25/2016)

Well made mine was a drop in installation no timing for the cylinder necessary. Lock up was very good, the extra safety notch for the bolt stays in place to prevent the cylinder from rotating even if forced with heavy hand pressure. (Posted on 8/18/2015)
