Over the years, there have been a passel of folks wailing, wringing their hands and gnashing their teeth over the real or imagined problem created by oversized bore over cylinder measurements. Legion are those who feel they know more about Colt's design and manufacturing than do either Sam himself, or Uberti, so they measure, complain and knowingly ream. Save your time, energy and dollars for more worry-worthy endeavors.

For almost 50 years I've fired .36 and .44 cap & ball revolvers in both Colt and Remington configurations & made by both Uberti and Pietta. Some were built pre CNC machining and all were exceptionally accurate despite that pesky disparity of cylinder/bore measurements.

Better to obsess about fabric thread count in your clothes, insoluble fiber content in your breakfast cereal or the percentage of oxygen in the air downtown vs at home, but as long as your revolver shoots as accurately as mine do, there's no need to worry.

Clyde gives good advice ... after all, he's closer to the actual age of Samuel Colt than any other living person that I know. And that should count for something;)
