View Full Version : Any Patterson Shooters Here?

I just bought a used Uberti Patterson replica from my buddies local gun shop. Good price, I couldn't resist it; I'm a Cap 'N Ballaholic! Seems to be very well made, and probably unfired, except for caps, perhaps, as there is some residue and a slight bit of surface rust in the chambers.

I looked on Uberti's website for a capper and loading tool, but didn't see any. Does anyone out there shoot a Patterson? If so, will a straight line capper work on it? What about the loading tool; does it work; is it worth getting? Or would a bench loader/rammer be better? Also need a nipple wrench; didn't see one at Uberti's site. Odd shaped, 4 sided nipple flange; must be an exact replica I guess.

Does anyone here have a Patterson; and how do you load it, cap it, etc. Thanks for your help. Joe :)
