to 1:16

News to me if they changed it to 16. Where did you see this? I thought
they were around the 1-38 twist range.

DGW still lists 1/30

I called Uberti today and was told 1:18

Thats GREAT. Glad they changed it. They really ought to shoot.

Start a ball at the muzzle and with a marked rotating ram rod, push the ball through the bore, count the twist rate yourself to be sure. The only way I know of without taking the word of someone else.

I thought that there have been reports that the Uberti's shoot conicals better than the Piettas.
