Best Selling Black Powder Revolvers
Uberti black powder revolvers are the cream of the crop when it comes to historical accuracy and build quality. Made in the spirit of the original, these Uberti revolvers are our most popular models and remain constant favourites both for shooting and re-enactment.
Uberti 1858 New Model Army 8''
Without doubt our most popular black powder revolver, Uberti's reproduction of the Remington 1858 has a well-earned reputation for reliability and consistency. The Model 1858 uses a closed frame design, making it stronger than the Colt revolvers, allowing the use of larger loads, and black powder substitutes. Simple to load and operate, the 1858 is without a doubt one of the most popular black powder revolvers of all time.
Uberti 1858 New Model Army Target Stainless Steel 8'
Every bit as good as the standard model 1858, this model features adjustable target sights for even more precise shooting. Finished in stainless steel for easier cleaning, and arguably better looks, this model is the closest you can get to a modern shooting black powder revolver.
Uberti Colt 1860 Army 8''
The best evolution of Colt's open frame series of revolvers, the 1860 is a stalwart favourite. With a long 8'' barrel and case hardened frame, the Colt model 1860 is an elegant and excellent shooting pistol. With 6 shots loaded with a slick creeping loading lever, this is the easiest black powder revolver to load, giving it an ergonomic advantage over other models. Sitting low in the hand, the Colt 1860 points and shoots remarkably well.
Uberti Colt 1873 Single Action Army 5 ½''
Uberti's retrofit cap and ball muzzle loading 1873 is a clever recreation of the original centrefire pistol. Having the same dimensions and operation as the original, this cap and ball variant is a lovely pistol to shoot. With the same smooth 4 click action as an original Colt, the Uberti Single Action Army is a fantastic window into the old West. As this is a cap and ball gun, there is no provision for a loading lever, so the cylinder must be removed to load on a loading stand. Despite this, the Uberti Single Action Army is one of our most popular revolvers, and this popularity stands as testament to how easy to use and shoot the gun is.
