Uberti; being more closely to the original size is 13 3/4" oal at 2 3/4 lbs. Has a 8" tapered octagon bbl in .44 cal; 7.20: at breech to .660" at muzzle; Button rifled .010: deep, with a 1-32" twist.

Where as the Pietta is 13 3/4" oal, and weighing in at 2 3/4 lbs also. NOTE: They do make several variations, such as the Texas 1858 revolver at 13 1/2" oal. Tapered octagon bbl .700" at breech to .680" at muzzle; button rifled .005" deep; 1-30" twist.

Not really that much difference in this model as compared to the 1860 Army .44's.

It just arrived today.
I probably will not be shooting for a little while because I have no money to buy a powder flask, powder, ball cast (I have a lot of lead though) and cpas (even though they are as cheap as dirt).

I do have to say that I was a little bit disappointed when it first arrived. I tried to work the action and it jammed. So I took it apart and noted how greasy and dirty it was. It appeared to have been shot and then someone dipped it in some kind of grease. So I tore it apart and cleaned it all up. Now it work beautifully and looks good too.
My father keeps on stealing it and spinning the thing. lol He hasn't handled a revolver in lord knows how long. I would almost have to say that he enjoys it more than me. lol

I don't have it anymore. The plunger was milled wrong and Cabelas wanted the whole firearm back because they didn't want to miss anything else that might be wrong. So I done what I thought was smart and sent the revolver back.

When it returns I will make sure to take pictures though!
