The Uberti 1851 Colt Navy was delivered on Friday. It is my first Uberti,
and fit and finish are very good. I am going to start collecting up
supplies to start shooting it like a snail capper and a powder flask. I
can't find black powder or American Pioneer powder anywhere local,
only Pyrodex P, but this revolver will never see Pyrodex. If I can't get
either on a trip to northern New Hampshire, I will have to order and pay
the hazmat fee.
For cleaning I think I will go with the 10:1 water/Ballistol mix, and then a
light coating of straight Ballistol for storage and corrosion protection.
