I usually start with checking who else is in on the Forum. Today I found Sheriff Langston on here.
Long time ago.

Hello Space,
the problem with gouging the inside might be cured with some file job. Haven't heard of a hammer screw unwinding itself before. My guess is that both problems are due to an un-round hammer hole that is also not perpendicular to the hammer sides. Some other guys will surely come up with more thoughts.

Hi everyone, I need some advice on my Uburti 1858 Remington New Model Army. I bought it new and it is the first percussion revolver that I have owned.  It seems to have issues with the hammer. It is striking a little to the left gouging the inside of the mainframe. Also the hammer screw unthreads itself little by little when I pull the hammer back. There might even be a bit of misalignment with the hammer in relation to the slot that in rest in.
I will add photos to this message. Any thoughts besides sending it back? I purchased this gun back in April of 2020 so returning it isn't an option anymore.

Thanks.

Well boys, a zip bag of boom!  ->i

Yeah. We went shooting.





Here very good friend Patric putting the thing through its paces.



Yep, That 1860 Army i bought came along and in short.. all sorted and works like new.

The brass tho?
Well. In word, nuff said. This there with using 50 Beo shells might take a little work on the lathe and reforming at that but truth be told it works a million bux.
It is THAT simple, and as the Beo brass is about 1/6th to 1/7th of the cost of purpose made Maynard brass OVER HERE it´s a no brainer in my book.
When handling 100 cases it sure stacks up, cost wise.

Leakage rearwards is.. nil. Absolutely zero. The soot that gathers is from the primer (atop the reciever of the gun). This works so well it´s a laughing matter even.

Happy to be of service guys.

Hope to get to shoot this one and a few others either late today or tomorrow. (An 1860 Army and a couple of Navys).
Got a few other guns inbound, amongst them yet another Starr SA. Hope to see more of the odd ones as time pass tho.

After that it´s a bit of R&R for me and the Mrs.

I've had a couple of those yataghan bayonets, still have one but I have no idea what it fits. The muzzle ring is huge.  The one with the large muzzle ring is on the bottom.

1858 Remington Revolvers / Re: No 116067

So. A few needed spares showed up. That there unfinished front sight we get as "raw material" where basically the raw shape and the threads are what´s done.
Rest is a matter of fitting..

Anyways. A trigger/bolt return spring showed up as well and with that installed it turned out the bolt didn´t fit as well as it should. So handled that.
Then, that done, it turned out that the fresh hand is overly long making the cylinder overshoot it´s bolt stop.

Yeah well. We´re getting there at least.
