    Im thinking about purchasing one of the following. I was wondering if any of y'all are familiar.

    Uberti 1872 Conversion 1860 Army 5 ½” 45LC
    Uberti, 1858 Remington Conv, 38SP 7 3/8”BL
    Uberti 1858 Remington conversion 45LC 5 ½”
    (pros and cons of each? experiences?)

    Also if anyone has owned a Schofield I would also like some feedback, I fell in love with that revolver the first time I laid eyes on one.

    I have the Cimarron Man with No Name and I love it as a fun piece. It looks sweet, shoots sweet and balances sweet. But it's just too nice to put in a holster or shoot to often. If you just want a cool gun they all fit the bill. If you plan to shoot cowboy action, sorry I can't help you. Here's a photo.

    Just looking to pick one up for the collection and occasional plinking, probably would be best to go with the .38sp one then cause of ammo cost?

    I have a Pietta 1858 remmy replica.
    I WILL be getting a .45 Colt cyl for it.
    Go .45 and reload, you will appreciate it a LOT down the road.

    I have thought about reloading and I probably will get into that down the road here soon. so caliber aside which model then? I obviously know purchasing a gun is always different for everyone due to preference etc. but which are you guys in favor of?

    If I remember correctly, the .38 Special bullet is not a tight fit in the revolver with the conversion cylinder. The .45 Colt is a much better round for this type of conversion, IMHO.

    These guns are replicas and not true conversions from the late 1800's. The ammo fits like any other new in the box modern gun.

    Find the one you like best. For collecting and occasional plinking they will all work for you. 38, 45, 32-30, what ever.
