I've heard lots of good things about them. I had a 3" 45 bird's head and got rid of it. I'm kicking myself right in the ass for that one. They have a firing pin so hammer on an empty cylinder. You're right, a lot of cowboy shooters use them.

I prefer Ruger because of the transfer bar and the fact that I can shoot heavy loads if I want and not worry about blowing up my gun. I do like the Uberi looks though. Some of their guns are really nice. I like the 7" Outlaw.

my only grip about vaqueros have been the frame/cylinder size but they seemed to have addressed that with the "new vaquero" series with the smaller frames---------but from what i understand, ya can't load them as hot as the old vaqueros----or so i've read..............

You're right, Deputy. The New Vaquero is built on a medium frame. I have 3 original model Vaqueros that are built on a large frame. I like the grips frames better. Once a free spin pawl is installed they are great. :D

I love Uberti , but the Ruger don't brake with heavy use and I also like to use heavy loads
and carry 6 for hunting . The Colts and clones fit my hand better but the SBH hammer on
the Ruger help alot plus I like the extra weight .

Uberti makes a lot of so called Colt Clones. Seems the ones they put other brands on are more expensive. I would assume the ones that say Beretta would go through more stringent Quality Control steps than the cheaper ones.
Able Ammo is one of the cheapest places I know to get anything from the Benelli line. Benelli includes Uberti, Stoeger and the more expensive, Benelli shotguns well as the Beretta family of firearms.
Able Ammo sells the Cattleman with brass for $406 and up so $295 is reasonable for a used but never abused $400 revolver.
I am pretty sure the 1873 Cattleman has a transfer bar instead of a hammer mounted firing pin.
I have seen several Ubertis at the Cowboy shoots I’ve been goin to. All of the people I talked to about them liked them.

I'll check on that transfer bar...thanks, Drummer, it seems they're pretty good guns from the feedback...this guy owns more than he shoots....he won't wear it out unless the camels ride......

No transfer bar. Firing pin on the hammer. At least last year they were all like that and the one I checked out last week was. I don't believe that Uberti uses them.

That's too bad about the firing pin. I know the Berettas have a transfer bar and just by looking at the Benelli DVD Catalog, it looked like the Cattleman Ubertis did too.

Thanks for the correction.

Hey Sheepdog!

Lookin through my latest issue of The Cowboy Chronicle which is the monthly SASS newspaper, I see that E.M.F. has several models of Uberti revolvers on sale for $350. You can check them out at www.emf-company.com
If you are still interested in those Ubertis. EMF sells a lot of firearms besides their own brands, at pretty decent prices.
