Uberti 1858 Remington .36 Revolver Conversion Cylinder

This conversion cylinder converts steel frame Uberti 1858 remington revolvers from .36 black powder to .38SP 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. No frame modification is needed, although minor fitting may be required due to gun manufacturer variations. Cylinders ship separate from firearms purchases.

I bought the 36 conversion for my 1970 Lyman/Uberty and it dropped in like it was custom made. The timing was also spot on. I have several 44 conversions but this is my first 36. Couldn't be happier. (Posted on 5/7/2018)

Works well in my Uberti chambers are timed well. Be aware that the bore diameter on 36 cal c&b revolvers (or at least mine) are much larger than .357" . I used hollow base bullets that obturate in the bore in order to grip the rifling and stabilize. Don't try to "magnumize" one of these guns just enjoy them with respect for their design.
