View Full Version : 1885 High-Wall

This might seem a dumb question for you Uberti veterans out there but are the Uberti High Walls and Low Walls made only for black powder? I get different information when searching the web and looking throught Uberti's Italian web site and Uberti USA's web site.
Appreciate any comments you have.

I own a 45-70 High wall. Nowhere in the instruction manual (pamphlet) does it say black powder only. I recall that it says to use factory loaded ammunition only, and there probably isn't any factory loaded black powder commonly available. The gun is built very stout, and handles my loads of 31 gr H-4895 300 gr RNFP fine. In fact, there's actually very little recoil due to the 30" barrel weight, especially compared to my Marlin 1894 with 26" barrel, which kicks like a mule.

Many thanks - appreciate the perspectives, especially the low recoil due to the heavy barrel at 30". I've done some searching around via the web and have spoken to Uberti and a couple of distributors. Able Ammo out of Fredricksburg, TX say they also sell the 32" barrel length High Wall as well as the 30-30 caliber High Wall that only the Uberti Italian web site shows as available. Think I'll stick to the 30" and if the 30-30 version is available then I have some thinking to do.

Hi folks! I'm going to be the owner of a Uberti High Wall in a couple of days. I already shot a few rounds with this rifle, that can use both smokless or blackpowder cardriges. Just like all the other breechloading guns by Uberti. Smokless powder is more practical, but someone says that blackpowder doubles the pleasure!
