New Uberti!
 
Hi all, I picked up my New Uberti 1873 Cattleman steel New Model / Walnut grip- 5.5" barrel .45 LC

Already took her to the range last weekend! I love this gun!

I also ordered a Wolff spring pak and installed it this past week - what a difference, very smooth.

Very nice fit and finish! The bluing looks very good, as does the color case hardening

Nice. There's just something sweet about an old style .45. :cool:

Very nice! Range report? How is the point-of-impact in relation to the point-of-aim?

Thank's. Yep, something about the old west;)

I shot at 12 yards, and it was dead on;) This was my first time shooting a Colt clone SAA. I did not know the proper sight picture, so I just held the "tip" of the front sight in the notch at the rear, and held 6 O'clock. As the bullets hit bullseye, I quess I was correct;)

I always wanted a single action .45, but it's always a crap shoot with fixed sights. Some guns shoot to POA and others don't. None of my fixed-sight Uberti BP revolvers shoot exactly to POA - have to use "kentucky windage". Sounds like you have a good one! Uberti does a real nice job with fit and finish.

That is a nice looking pistol, I hope it shoots as well as it looks.

Lucky you!

Smart move with the Wolff springs. You will have a lot of fun with your Uberti. Jim Downing engraved my backstrap at End of Trail while I watched for $55. He does great work and it really makes the gun more special. www.thegunengraver.com

Good looking gun you have there.

Please give us a range report when you get the chance.

Yes the Uberti fit and finish is excellent but I had to send my new Cattelmen in to get it shooting straight. Shooting about 5 inches to the left at 20ft.. I think the barrel needs to be screwed in about a sixteenth of an inch. Hope to have it back in a week and shooting straight.
