Uberti 1851-1861 Navy Revolver Conversion Cylinder

This conversion cylinder converts steel frame Uberti 1851-61 Navy revolvers from .36 black powder to .38LC smokeless ammunition. Taylor's does not recommend shooting ammunition rated above 850 fps in this conversion cylinder. Due to the over sized barrel bore on these black powder revolvers, for the best accuracy hollow-base bullet ammunition should be used. Reloading/loading is done by removing the barrel 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. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

I recently purchased this conversion cylinder from Taylor's and installed it on my Uberti 1861 Colt Navy. The cylinder and top plate are machined to tight tolerances and it slipped right onto my revolver with no need for additional fitting. I had the opportunity to take my revolver to the range yesterday and have now run 48 rounds of factory .38LC ammo through the gun. The revolver shot flawlessly with this conversion cylinder and maintained the same high level of accuracy as when using the original BP cylinder. I appreciate the added versatility of now being able to shoot cartridges through the same BP revolver. (Posted on 2/23/2018)

I recently received your conversion cylinder for my 58 Remington replica. It is the finest thing I have gotten from my computer and it changes my rather dim view of the 58Rem! Thank you!! (Posted on 1/21/2018)

I recently bought this conversion cylinder along with 4 others (for my other Uberti Cap and Ball Revolvers: 1858 Remington, 1860 Army, Walker and Dragoon Model 3) from Taylor Firearms. Every one dropped in perfectly and functioned flawlessly. I can now shoot my these revolvers at any range even those that don't allow blackpowder. Thanks so much Taylor Firearms for the products and great service you provide. (Posted on 7/7/2017)
