Lyman 1858 Remmie compared to Uberti 1862 Police
« on: February 27, 2013, 12:44:56 PM »
Here's what I've rescued from various places.

The 1858 is a 6 shot .36 cal Lyman Uberti, date code XX7, while the 5 shot .36 cal Uberti 1862 is date code [BU].
Both have 6.5 inch barrels.

After I purchased the 1862, the fella stated that the other one on the shelf was the next serial number, argh!

On the Kitchen scale, I see 2 lbs 9-5/8 oz.

Paul

Now I need to find some .380 round balls as the cylinder is a bit large for the .375's.

Thanks again! Another member posted a comparison between an original .36 Rem and a Lyman .36 Rem, a while back -

http://1858remington.com/discuss/index.php/topic,1500.msg21319.html#msg21319

It appeared that the Lyman was very close to the original's size. In contrast, the repros available nowadays (Uberti and Pietta) use the .44 frame for building their .36 Remmies.

I thought that Lyman's were manufactured by Euroarms, but "Colt" stated that his Lyman was made by Uberti.... ? Do you know who built your Lyman?

The Lyman has the Uberti stamp on the barrel.




Enough? Heh Heh, Paul

Mighty fine pistol there, Paul. I wouldn't mind getting one of those someday.

I like that Colt repro, too..... alas, so many revolvers, so little time  :'(
