I looked it up over on Taylers the importer, and to change a BH to a Plow handle is about $70.00.
They get this all the time going both ways with Uberti and Cimmaron. And that includes the fitted grip.
And it's only the back strap that you replace the front strap is the same.
I called them and asked and they sent me to technical. A real nice fella who loves to talk shop.


He verified that Colt now does use Uberti receivers and the cap and ball revolvers they sold years ago were all Uberti. Taylers imports them for Colt in the rough, Colt anymore just finishes them and charges a ton of money for the name. And he said anything Uberti will interchange with a Colt, but Uberti grips were one piece where the Colts were two. But the frame is exactly the same.

Taylers and Numrich bought up all the ROA parts they could find so they both have a good inventory on all that.
They also have a lot of Colt parts all American made. I looked at a Winchester 73 made by Uberti and it was a
very nice rifle, still around one grand but if that's what you want they make them.
Uberti is coming out with the 1886 rifle, I'd like to see one of those but not made in Japan.

I'm sorry Scibaer I didn't spell it right. I should know better I've ordered a lot of stuff from them.
I bought two of my guns from them direct and with the shipping and the FFL charge I still saved $200.00.
BP you can get shipped to your home and they are a great bunch.

They are mostly western stuff, and they sell some very nice sharps rifles. Then you find out through them and other sites that even Shilo Sharps and Sharps rifles up in Montana import the parts and receivers from Italy anyway. Cabelas in Fort Worth carries a lot of their stuff that isnt in their catalog or on the web site.
Remington rolling blocks and one of the finest looking cap and ball revolvers I've ever seen.
They have an entire back room dedicated to this kind of guns.


It's where they keep the Vaquero's and some of them are as nice as any Colt ever was.

Some people don't know it but the Vaquero is true color case bone hardened, it's not just a finish.
I know the Cimarron is to and I believe so is the Uberti. You pretty well have to do that at factory and know what you are doing. I can't say that about the 4th generation colts I've read a lot of bad press about their quality
control lately on all their guns.

They have class not plastic. And they will still get the job done like they have for over 250 years including the muskets.
