View Full Version : Information on Remington/Uberti Revolving Rifle
November 27, 2008, 06:54 PM
Can anyone on this forum Help me with info. on a Rem./Uberti revolving Rifle?
This rifle is an exact copy of a 1858 Rem. New Army revolver, but has a stock instead of a pistol grip.
Is this rifle a repo of an actual Rem. rifle?
Has anyone had any experience owning and shooting one of these rifles?

It's historically correct. I wouldn't go so far as to say an "exact" copy but pretty dang close. Never shot a carbine. Just keep your hand from in front of the cylinder. The possibility of a chain fire is real.

+1 for keeping hands behind the cylinder. Besides the danger of chain fire, the gases/flames/hot bits coming out of the barrel cylinder gap can give you a nice burn as well.
Check the link below. One of the bad guys in "The good, the bad, and the ugly" used a revolving carbine, and of course he's holding it WRONG !!! Also, this site mentions that the original Remington carbines had much longer barrels.
Here's the safe way to hold a revolving carbine. I don't know these folks, but Lucky Bill does it right:

Personally, I don't want all that "going on" so close to my face.
Lee Van Cleef demonstrated the proper way to hold a shoulder-stocked revolver when he shot the hunchback in the street in "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". If I'm remembering the right scene???

Guess I've got them all jumbled up in my head. I'm sure I'll sit down one chilly afternoon and watch them all again in the coming months to refresh my memory. ;)

I'll bring some popcorn. My problem is I never watch the whole movie(s) anymore. I just watch my favorite gun scenes. Sorry this is so far off track chubbo.

I don't find them to be very practical as a rifle, but I'd sure love to have one of the 18" barrels to twist onto a regular remi frame. What a conversation piece that would be at the range! ;)
