Review:

Well this was my 1st experience replacing one of these. I had to get out the dremel tool after a few days with a file. My original Uberti hand had a broken spring only so I had some idea how long hand had to be. Be prepared to install and remove this thing a number of times, although I discovered I did not have to install the grip frame each time I tested the fit. I took about a ľ inch off the length and than kind of shaped it on the edge (front and back). I knew I was getting close when I installed it with trigger, bolt, hammer and cylinder with barrel and it worked ok but would not let the hammer back to full cock. Thatís when I shaped it a little like the original and Walla it worked. It must have been a bear to work in the Colt factory in 1851 and do this all day, every day but I guess after a time you would have gotten good at it. WONDER WHERE THEY PLUGED IN THEIR DREMEL TOOL? Now I get to test this repair with some powder and ball!

Nicely shaped, but the pin is too large to fit the Dixie ham ..
