1873 / 1866 Bullet Alignment Kit w/ Spring and follower
1873/1866 Bullet Alignment Kit
All 1873 reproduction rifles are fitted with a 45- colt magazine tube from the factory regardless of caliber. When loading rounds into the 357 caliber rifles the bullets cannot align properly in the magazine tube due to the over -sized diameter of the factory tube. This staggered bullet effect will cause a slight hanging feel in your rifle making it OAL sensitive. This Alignment Kit will eliminate this issue. Our "NEW" bullet Alignment tubes are made from a super light carbon fiber base compound and are a perfect fit inside the factory tube but will NOT add weight to your rifle like other Alignment kits. These kits are cut for a 24" barrel rifle, but can be easily fitted to any shorter barrel length. Kits include a new stainless steel magazine spring and stainless steel follower. All kits are shipped with a 26 inch spring for the 24 inch kits. Once the kit is installed leave 3 inches of spring sticking out of the factory mag tube and trim the remaining amount off.
