Shud be- like anything there are varing "degrees" of Uberti modles but never had a real problem with any i had- Be sure to check the POA vs POI on it- They aren't really target pistolas

I have a question about those. Are they safe to carry with the hammer down on a round? The SA Rugers have the Transfer Safety Bar and I know these Uberti's don't. Beautiful guns though!!

I asked a guy at the gun counter that while I was looking at one, as he went into detail about how awesome they are, and how much he loved the two he owned and knew so much about.

His reply was oh I don't know.....

I would like to know the answer.

I was curious after u asked about safe carrying so i got it out looking at the manual it says and I quote " the old- tymers used to say that the safest way to carry a single-action revolver was to load only five chambers and let the hammer rest, in the safety position, on the empty sixth chamber. That's good advice even today. It still takes proper care in handling and use by you, it's owner."

Yeah Bill, the Ruger SAs with the transfer bar allow you to safely carry all 6 chambers loaded. The Ubertis are more like their original counterparts; like the the old Colts. I'd love to get one someday.

Depending on the Uberti you have. Best advice, carry an empty chamber under the hammer, I even do that with my New Model Rugers.

Some Ubertis have a hammer block safety tht is activated when the hammer is placed in the safety position, the first click. This activates a hammer block, look at you hammer just under the firing pin. If there is a separate piece visible, that the hammer block.

If it is not visible, then check your base pin (cylinder pin) for two grooves. This allows the hammer to be placed at the half cock, or loading notch, then depress the base pin latch and push the base pin in to block the hammer. Make sure the latch engages the second notch. Not a very practical safety, originated with the Hammerli Virginians as the "Swiss Safe" safety.

To keep the cylinder from rotating while in the half cock position, pull the hammer to full cock, then lower it to the half cock. This will engage the cylinder bolt.

Again, best practice is to keep an empty chamber under the hammer.

And, Ahem! Since you ask, here's mine:



They are a .22 L.R., a .44 Special, and a .45 Colt Flat Top. The .22 and the .44 have the "Swiss Safe" system, the .45 has the Uberti hammer Block.
