An Original Remington New Model Army RevolverThe original 1858 Remington New Army was produced from 1862 until 1875 and was originally a percussion revolver. The 1858 Remington New Army is a large revolver, weighed almost three pounds, and with an eight inch barrel and quite well suited for cavalry and long-distance work (it was sighted in a seventy-five yards). While I could never enjoy the ownership of an authentic 1858 Remington New Army Conversion revolver, Uberti has brought a replica of one to the table and a fine replica it is – with one caveat that I will cover later in this review. I have always loved the firearms from the Civil War era and have fired a Navy .36 caliber percussion revolver (which was also a replica) that belonged to a friend, who was also a replica of a Confederate soldier once he got into costume. Ruger Old Army Percussion RevolverWhen Sturm Ruger introduced the Ruger Old Army revolver around 1972, my interest in things cap-n-ball was again aroused.
Uberti has been manufacturing replicas of early firearms for quite a while and have a reputation of being as close to the original design but with more modern steel and manufacturing. My Uberti 1858 New Army Conversion in .45 LCResearching the list of Uberti dealers I found that the LGS that I have been doing business with for about thirty years was one.
A Shell ejector With More Than Enough Rod to Eject the Long Colt Expended CasesSide Loading Gate and Revolver In the Full-Cock Position.Mortised Front Sight and Loading Lever in Stored PositionA shell ejector was added. Speaking of triggers, the Uberti 1858 New Army Conversion revolver has a crisp and consistent 2.5 pound trigger pull on my particular model. The blued finish on the revolver is excellent with slight variances between parts of the revolver.


The heavily textured hammer spur provides the necessary grip surface to ensure a positive grip on the hammer with the thumb of either hand. The cylinder locks up like a drum; there is absolutely no play when the cylinder is locked in nor any when the hammer is at rest.
Also as important as the forcing cone-to-cylinder gap on revolvers is the thickness of the chambers within the cylinder.
Since the range that I frequent is less than a mile from the gun shop, and since I had purchased a box of PROGRADE .45 Colt 250-grain Cowboy Grade at a discount at the LGS, it would only be natural of me to head to the range. One of my shooting buddies really liked the looks of the Uberti 1858 New Army Conversion revolver so I passed it over to him and he put five down range while smiling all the time.
After I acquire some more “Cowboy” ammunition, it will be back to the range with the Uberti 1858 Remington New Army Conversion revolver. Visit the Uberti web site for more information about this and other fine reproduction firearms. EXCELLENT: near new condition 95% - 98%, used but little, no noticeable marring of wood or metal, bluing near perfect (some wear at muzzle or sharp edges can be expected).
FINE: All original finish 90% - 94% or better, some dings in wood wear commensurable with percent of finish. FAIR: 0% - 40% with generally smooth finish, may have mild cleaning yet not deeply pitted, but well worn, replacement of minor parts may need mechanical adjustments, may have rust and may have corrosion pits which do not render article unsafe or inoperable.


It was a robust revolver and served well in numerous wars, including the American Civil War and in other countries. The shell ejector rod has a lever that is locked into place by what used to be a loading lever. Releasing the loading lever from its front detent and moving it downward allows the ejection rod to move rearward into the chamber to push the expended shells out of the cylinder – one at a time. Although the original 1858 Remington New Army Conversion revolvers have more history than I can imagine, so did the one that I was looking at. I have tried the Tipton brand, but the brass primer, although softer than the firing pin, deforms to a point where the snap cap is ineffective. Numbers match except safety and has marked leather sling.  80% of finish remaining on rifle.
