^^^ what he said.

You can not set up a Uberti to shoot repeatably accurately without having the correct arbor length.

Normal Uberti: Put the wedge in further and further and you bring the cylinder gap closer and closer and eventually it's rubbing. You are bending the barrel up and up and up... and the gun shoots higher and higher and higher. On many you can jam the cylinder to the BBL just using thumb pressure on the wedge. Tap with a brass hammer and you can definately jam them.

Fitted Uberti (like a Colt original is fitted): Wedge goes in to hold the frame and BBL together, and no matter how loose or tight you put the wedge in, the gap remains the same. Tap on it with a brass hammer... gap still stays the same.


This makes a huge difference in shootability, etc.
