Uberti 1860 problem

Post by brm4450 » Thu May 21, 2020 10:23 am

I took my Uberti 1860 to the range yesterday and when I went to lever in the first round the lifter arm won’t raise the shell up to the barrel. Any ideas?

Yep. You might want to remove the side covers and take a look.

If you have never had the side covers off...they are RAZOR sharp. Watch out.
To clean I just loosen the lever screw, back it out a little then tap the right side cover out.

Was this factory ammo or your own loads? This type of rifle action is somewhat sensitive to cartridge length. When you cycle the action with no ammo in the rifle does the lifter block raise?
