Uberti

Hey just bought a Uberti 1873 cattleman .45LC off a friend. It seems to be a good gun.

Anyone have any thoughts on Uberti guns?

Thanks Drew

I have a few, and they have given me good service. Best of the Italian imports, IMO.

I have a Cimarron Model P (which is the same as a Uberti Cattleman) in .45 Colt and it's a great shooter. However, mine shot very far to the left, so I sent it back to Cimarron to have the barrel indexed. Should be back next week. The gun would group into 1" at 15 yards, so I'm excited to get the POI issue fixed.

I got to shoot it and it is a great shooting gun. I still need to pickup another vaquero however.

I had their copy of the 1875 remington,it shot down and to the left but i allowed for that and it was in the bull(it grouped well),no problems.Most western movies use their guns.

The Uberti single actions are good guns, the Colt style mechanism may not be as tough as Rugers but my pair of stainless Cimarrons has given a lot of smooth trouble free service.

I'm into the history of Old Civil War Black Powder Revolvers and the Richards-Mason Conversions. The 3 replicas made by Denix are of course non-firing and hang on the wall in my den.The specifications on these match the original weapons pretty close, except for weight of course. The Uberti 1871 Richards-Mason Conversion of an 1851 Colt Navy Revolver, is in .38 Special and resides in a safe. So far the Uberti has been reliable and is a well made replica of a remarkable time in our history. I keep snap caps in it because dry firing is an obsolute no no.

I have the Beretta Stampede in 45 Colt and the El Patrone in .38/.357. Beretta as you know owns Urberti. Both are excellent guns. The Stampede had issues with the hammer hooks wearing prematurely. Since replacing the hammer the gun has been fine. The El Patrone has had only a couple of hundred rounds through it and it functions just fine.

Both are very accurate and very well made. The fit and finish is significantly better than my two Rugers. While the SAA design maybe weaker than the newer Ruger Vaquaroes the Italian guns do outshine the Rugers.

Take Care

Bob
