Pietta Cylinder fits on Original? Uberti does.

Hey friends.

I want to replace the cylinder on my original Colt army 1860 because it's not in good condition and I want to put it back to work.

I found these two (check out the links below) The Uberti is saying it also fits on an original. But it's out of stock, so I have to deal with the pietta and I'm not sure if it also fits on my original. For me, it looks similar.

I need advice from Somebody who knows that, not just an opinion. Thank you very much.

CY0606 Cylinder for the Uberti Repro. Colt 1860 Army Or Original .44 Army

Go here and get this instead of a Pietta or Uberti. Get some Treso nipples for original Colts (made for #11 caps but my #10 Remington caps fit better) and you'll be good to go. If you have questions call Lodgewood - great people who know old iron. 1860 Army Colt Cylinder (Reproduction for Original)-#33 No engraving on the cylinder and no nipples included.

Some Uberti 1861 Navy cylinders fit original 1861 Navy arbors/frames, but it's likely to hit and miss, and miss again with production over the years, especially with the 1860 Army because of all the variants. The Lodgewood cylinder will fit.
I don't know anybody in the US. This Cylinder would be the best solution. Unfortenly they don't ship internationally and I'm living in Sweden. Maybe there is a nice person which could send it to me for some extra money?
