Uberti 1861 Navy arrived but.......

......the large screw used for attaching a shoulder stock on is missing on the left side. It does appear to be unfired except for a good bit of handling and turning the cylinder which left a bit more than the "slight turn marks" as described on Gun broker. As I looked again at the GB add, I was able to save the pictures of the left side in a different format and zoom in on it. Sure enough, the screw was missing when it was put on gun broker. I missed it when I looked at the pictures in normal mode. The seller said he never noticed it either. Where can I get another of these screws? When you cock it, you can see what I guess is the bottom of the hammer moving or maybe the bolt/hand moving thru the hole where the screw should be. Will it hurt to shoot it like this?

I found that Taylors is more complete with their parts sets, others may have it also.

Won't hurt to shoot it without the screw.

I would rather see the part for $7 and free shipping. 6 of one...

I wish a small filler screw was available to plug the stock stud holes. The stud on the right side was annoying to me, my trigger finger wanted to use that space. I just took it out and ignored the hole.

I agree. Those 2 screws are a PITA.

An allen head cap screw would work fine IMO. Fill the allen socket with non hardening colored putty. Personally the allen screw would be enough.

Good thinking, you jogged my memory. I made a filler screw for the saddle ring hole on my Browning 1886 carbine with one, I just filed the opposite end tip flat and hand cut a regular screwdriver slot in it. That was about 20-ish years ago,..... I still recall the very cute girl that helped me, she let me bring my rifle into the bolt store to find the correct size.

Had a friend whose father owned an auto repair shop. Fellow came in one day and asked for a tuneup. Friend's dad completed the work and gave the bill to the customer, who loudly complained about the cost. In particular he said the $1.50 per spark plug was way too much - the shop down the street only charged 75 cents. Friend's dad asked, "Why didn't you have him do the work, then?" Customer replied, "He was out of spark plugs." Friend's dad: "Well, that explains it. I charge just 75 cents each when I'm out of them also."

We're talking about a screw here folks! Figuratively and literally. This is a part that can be taped to half an index card and put in an envelope and mailed like a letter! Now, this was Taylors. If I had just ordered online the shipping would have been 6 or 6.50 I forget which. I called them to ask why they could not just mail it like a letter and was told it had something to do with the way that the post office ran the mail thru on a conveyor belt and that the screw would mess up the operation. Yeah, RIGHT. They finally agreed to put it in a padded envelope for the $3. Geeeez. Had I not called, they would have charged my card on the spot and sent it via the higher rate of shipping.

^^

And since it's "just a screw" you could have gone to Fastenal and grabbed one for about 3 cents too... or gone into any Ace hardware store and gotten one out of the Metric hardware drawers yourself. Heat it with a torch to red and dip in old motor oil a few times to blue it and been done with it.

Or you could spend $7.00... because someone else did all of that for you...

Will's got a point there. I was going to suggest you buy a few other spare parts such as a hand or two just in case. But I'm glad you found that screw.

I would suggest that the fact that Taylor's has the knowledge required, the actual inventory on hand, and was willing to take the time to talk to a customer about a $4.00 item at all & then make special shipping arrangements that they earned there $7.00 more than once. There is no way they made even a penny profit on that transaction. Just top shelf customer service that you don't see every day any more. Let's be honest, the whole scenario was more charity on Taylor's part than anything. A gracious Thank You would be appropriate.

I know, try finding that screw 40 years ago. Things sure have changed for the better.

Take those screws out, chuck the threads into a variable speed cordless drill and turn the heads down to an round configuration. Turn them slowly agains a fine file. Heat to blue or use cold blue.
