I think Uberti will work. Pietta will be too long.

Hi 44rem, jump on over to the "Welcome Wagon" and tell us a few things about yourself. How did you find this Great Forum?

Hello Rem44,

I have the following listed,

Pietta, Length 2.0165"-2.0210", Diameter 1.590"-1.597", Arbor .277"-.278"

Uberti, Length 1.999"-2.002", Diameter 1.606", Arbor .277"

Howell 44 Colt Conversion, Length 2.0156", Diameter 1.625", Arbor .2773"

Original, Length 2.008"-2.0124", Diameter 1.6091"-1.627", Arbor .266"-.268"

It's not that the Uberti's are tighter tolerance, I did the measuring on the Pietta'a & Howell.

Hope this helps, AntiqueSledMan.

My Pietta (Howell) just now mic's 2.015
My Uberti (Taylors)  mic's 2.000
So I suppose if the bolt recess is the proper off-set for timing the "Uberti" from Taylors or Howell should fit.  Just be sure to check timing.  My Uberti cylinder fits into my Pietta and locks up and is timed just fine.   The Pietta cylinder will not go into the frame on the Uberti, absolutely.
I could have gone to work today but the voices in my head said "stay home and clean the guns"

Hi rem44, I have a couple of original '58s; one has a suspect cylinder as it appears it "might" have a crack. Rather than trust it as shootable, I ordered a new-made cylinder (made for original '58s) from Lodgewood. It even has original size nipple threads and they have those nipples as well. Price was about the same as a replacement repro cylinder. Fit and function was right on.

Yeah. David is real cool to deal with.
That said IME the pts they offer/provide ARE on the money when stated as being for original guns. Sry to say Lodgewood donĀ“t keep an export license though why all shipping of pts has to be done by friends in the US. But,more an annoyance than anything...

The Lodgewood shop is only about 40 miles from me. I have purchased (or traded original parts) stuff from them for a few years now. In fact, he has my Jaeger rifle, well it used to be mine!

I thank you all for replies and found that the lodgewood can be sent to a friend in LA and to me more of an annoyance like frost on the pumpkins. Thanks
