I want to install a new cylinder in a Uberti Model P.  Does anyone have instructions on how to do this?

Most will drop in if they are the same. The only issue that may come up is timing, then you will have to try longer or shorter hand.

The Ubertis are produced on CNC machinery and timing should not be an issue. It may be necessary to fit the cylinder bushing to the frame, either by stoning off a bit to shorten it or installing a shim washer between the cylinder and bushing head if there is end shake. The bushing itself is too hard and thick to stretch with a modified tubing cutter, S&W type yoke tool.

Check end play with sized, empty brass in the chambers.

As FYI Pietta parts can usually be gunsmith-fitted to Gen1 and Gen2 Colts, whereas Ubertis differ and cannot.

I won a Uberti .44-40 w/ 7 1/2" bbl at EOT 1999. 

My Gunsmith got another cylinder in .44Spl, just dropped it in. Indexed perfectly w a B/C gap of .006, miracles never cease.

Ed, I don't know if I broached this subject before, but here goes. Every so often I fantasize about getting a .40 S&W cylinder for my Uberti .38 w.c.f. The rationale is the bullets would be the same and the brass would be almost free. I am guessing one would have to start out with a .357 cylinder and go from there?

The silly part is I should be selling handguns not adding more to the flock that rarely get shot. I have gone off the deep end with long range .22 and cast .308 of late. But still, I see all of that free Sheriff's Dept. brass that nobody wants and it stimulates these thoughts.

Dukem,

I have just such a cylinder made for my .401 powermang from a .357 cylinder. In fact I now have .401, .40 S&W, & .38 WCF. I also have another .357 mag cylinder that is waiting to be re-chambered to 10mm.
