Default 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.

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

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.
