I own a Ruger Blackhawk 357 with a 9mm conversion barrel, and a Uberti Stallion chambered in 38. They are totally different guns. As said earlier in this post, it depends on what you're looking for. If you want traditional, the Uberti is the way to go. If you want power and strength and a gun built like a sherman tank, the ruger will be your best friend. I enjoy shooting both.
