{ Deluxe Edition Uberti 1860 Army }

"From Box to Holster"

The 1860 Army was adopted as U.S. government ordnance because of its lighter weight, improved balance, and superior ballistics. This 6-shot, .44 caliber, round-barrel percussion revolver became very popular with mounted troops and went on to be the issue sidearm for the U.S. Army for many years.

The pioneer of its time, the LH Deluxe Edition of the 1860 Navy is a step to the next level in reliability and shooting prowess.  A continuation of much research and development the Deluxe Package makes this sidearm the one of the most desirable revolving blackpowder pistol for competion and field use, second only to the LH Premier Reproductions. Greatly increased accuracy, reliability, smoothness, and function, the LH Deluxe 1851 is ready to go to work right out of the box with no tweaking or adjustment necassary.  Extensive individual gunsmithing goes into every revolver to bring it up to spec. This exceeds the work required for a cartridge pistol. (i.e. hardening of soft parts, coil hand spring, etc.) But, for those who desire this legendary weapon for what is was and what it can be we offer the LH Deluxe Percussion Series, the pioneer of their time, in 1851, 1860, and the 1861 Navy.

Our New Anti Cap Jam system is available for this model and eliminates cap jams under fast shooting conditions. It is unlike any previously attempted systems (like the Manhattan) and fits into the gun without stepping out of period.  Internal cap shelf acts as a blast shield and prevents caps from ejecting to the immediate rear under fire or falling into the action afterwards while cocking. The system does not eliminate the original safety notches for the cylinder either! Click here for picture.

The latest innovation to the LH Deluxe Percussions finally eliminates the greatest missing piece of the reproduction puzzle.  Correct Cylinder Bore Diameter!  The LH Deluxe 1860 is available in the new .452 cylinder bore to yield the greatest accuracy and power possible.  The New .452 Bore Cylinders extrude a projectile of correct size to fit the barrel and seal.  Factory Cylinders are .448" - .449" diameter so the ball or conical will be 0.001 - .002" smaller than the barrel.  This creates the gas cutting we all deal with and creates the erratic velocities these pistols are previously attributed with. Any LH Deluxe .44 Caliber with the .452 bore will yield standard deviations as low as 20 fps across a 21 shot spread. (that's without cleaning). These pistols will give incredible accuracy even rivaling modern handguns with correct loading techniques. However, the increased bore diameter mandates the use of .454" or greater diameter balls to prevent chain firing. The .452 Bore is not included with standard custom work.
