Description: New Uberti 1849 Pocket Pistol .31 cal, 4” barrel, standard blue, Unfired with full action job, arbor correction and cap post installation by Mike Brackett of Goons Gun Works to help keep cap fragments from entering the action.

No trades. Price is final. Includes shipping to continental USA where legal. Box and all papers included. Image available upon serious request.


Reason for sale: Arthritis in both thumbs


Note: There are very few gunsmiths that specialize in making these revolvers fast and reliable.  Mike Brackett is probably the best of them.  The work done to each of these costs $165 each not including shipping back and forth. It includes:


1. Correct the arbor length and bed the arbor - This allows the revolver to work as a solid unit instead of two assemblies held together.
2. Set the barrel/ cylinder gap to .002-.0025 - This eliminates the debris, which causes the cylinder to bind. The smaller the gap, the longer you can shoot without binding.
3. Sculpt the bolt head - This allows for earlier entry into the locking notch and will protect the notch from damage. Sculpting also reduces weight and increases efficiency.
4. Installation of a bolt block - Creates a solid lock up and helps to prevent throw-by.
5. Installation of an action stop - This feature prevents over-travel of the hammer and keeps the hand from being forced against the ratchet after lock up.
6.  Installation of a cap post - This keeps spent caps and/ or fragments out of the action. It also restricts any blowback past the post, which allows for a much lighter "cartridge" type action (Colt and Colt type safety pins are not affected).
7.  Harden and fire blue the screws and screw pins - Not only will they look better, but also action parts will have less friction due to the heat-treating.
8.  Individually tune springs - It is important for springs to work efficiently. Most springs are over stressed.
9.  Set to perfect timing

I would now consider trades for vintage Canon FD or FDn lenses from the film camera era. They must however be in near mint condition both optically and cosmetically.

Other possible trades for an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP or SPII camera with Takumar lenses. A medium format Mamiya RB67 with at least a normal lens is another consideration. They must however be in near mint condition optically, mechanically and cosmetically.
