Hello,

Shooting the first time this 30 years old Uberti :

10gr of BP, 7gr cornmeal, crisco and cal. 322 ball.

After shooting the first 2 cylinders, I know where to aim; Out of 25 balls, 21 are in the black center.

Next step : install a new front sight, replace the nipple with AMPCO to avoid burst caps entering the mechanism.

I don't recall ever seeing a .31 Colt target posted before.
That's really great 25 meter shooting accuracy, and the Colt is nice looking too.
Thanks for sharing! :)

hello,

This Colt is much more accurate and easy to shoot than the Remington pocket :

I have hunted jackrabbits with a Uberti 1849 Pocket model. The range was usually less than 25 yards but the little 31 caliber ball is quite lethal on the big hares.

I would argue with you about the lethality of a .31 on jackrabbits...,



but that would just be splitting hairs. :neener::rolleyes::barf:

The Doc is out now. :cool:;)

Here's how that conversation would go at my house:

Me: I just bought this. Cool, huh?
Her: You better buy another safe... you're out of room in this one.

:D

Great shooting! Now you make me want another caliber(sigh). I would think you very well armed with that .31 in your pocket. Thank you for posting the picture..........Mike P.S. did you use FFF or FFFF BP? What is PNF2?

Hello,

In order to aim where to point, I have dovetailed a new front sight, higher and on the left :

Now it shoots straight :
