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 20" barrel rifle or
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.
