Uberti revolvers
 
Anybody vouch for the 1873 cattleman? My birthdays coming up in September and I want a good quality SA revolver. I've narrowed it down to the Ruger Vaquero or 1873 cattleman. I simply don't know enough about the Uberti. Ive read both good and bad reviews so I want to hear any first hand accounts of each. Also want in 357 btw. Cheaper than 45 colt

Very hard to find ANY negatives about the Rugers. Mine have worked flawless and been accurate.

Ill also ask where to find good leather holsters and cartridge belts for them?

Hard to beat Ruger, but Uberti has been owned by Beretta and now Benelli, both high-quality companies. Re-enactors I know us Uberti and swear by them, but I don't have the hands-on experience with those that I do Ruger.

The only reason I consider Uberti is the price point. Almost $100 cheaper than the closest Vaquero. And I figure if its quality then why not save some money and use it on ammo?

I have the cattleman and like it a lot! It is in .45lc . The only issue I had was when I bought it I noticed there was a screw missing for the trigger guard, so I called them up and they sent one, very nice customer service!

Go ruger new vaquero. Got a pair in 45colt for cas. They are good to go competition ready out of the box. The ubertis tend to need some love to get em running at the same level the rugers start.

My choices were ruger colt uberti. After using em and watching others have issues im glad i went ruger. Only folks ive seen have problems are ones with colt saa or uberti saa.

Leverguns the uberti 1873 cant be beat.

The cattleman is a really nice gun. The ruger is better

I've got one of the old Vaqueros in .45 Colt, that thing is a tank.

I'd like to get my hands on one of the new models in .357, much lighter.

Owned a dozen or more Ubertis--- Used in CAS with no problems--
Rugers are top shelf but nothing like the feel of a 4 click Colt single action :)
