Here is a site that carries various parts, including the cylinder, for Uberti. From everything I know, the 1858 New Army and the 1858 Revolving Carbine use the same cylinder

Price is $100. A bit steep for me, but it is an option.

Kirpi is right in that both the Uberti 1858 & the Revolving Carbine use the same cylinder & VTI is usually the best place to find replacement parts but if they don't have what you need give taylors firearms (http://www.taylorsfirearms.com/products/accessories.tpl) a try too.

I looked at Dixie first, and it didn't come up as in stock. Guess you just have to have the touch. You are right. It is there for less.:D

I have no idea why a uberti cylinder should be that much more expensive than a pietta. I can see 10 bucks more or so, but that's more than double.

The thing that is even funnier Noelf2.

Uberti's 1858 cylinders are slightly shorter than a Pietta 1858.
You get more Steel for less money with a Pietta.

Replacement cylinder from Taylor's is only $66.00 for the New Army. But the carbine cylinder is $81.00. Don't know why. Maybe a phone call to them would clarify.

You want sticker shock. I went to Taylor's to check on the cost for an extra cylinder for my Pietta 1861 Colt Navy .44 cal. They want $102 / $111.:eek: I can get it locally for $40. I am not sure if theirs is gold plated or what. But I don't need one that bad.

I would think about jumping at that $66 offer if it pans out. Because the rest of the prices are beyond what I thought to be fair.:confused:

That's interesting! More steel, longer chamber, more powder, more power!

Also interesting. I've pondered over getting a carbine and planned to get an R&D cylinder for it. The R&D is supposed to fit either the gun or the carbine. Should be the same c&b cylinder. I just might make that call...

Pretty reasonable price:

Wow, that's quite an address. If it doesn't work just look in hunting, black powder, pistols.:):)

That is for a Pietta not a Uberti, & unfortunatly it will not fit.

Hi, I have a Uberti 1858 carbine and love it. I found a 45 long colt cylinder for it on Gunbroker.com. They have ALL sorts of guns, ammo and parts for just about anything you need.
Hope this helps anyone.
