    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. :cool:

    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

    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.

    You are in trouble now! Next it will be a .45 lever gun and then a 12 gauge coach gun and of course another .45 sixgun maybe with a longer barrel. A holster with one being a crossdraw. Then you can join SASS (http://sassnet.com/) choose an alias buy new clothes for that and spend weekends shooting all those guns in competition. A terrible addiction but one I have enjoyed for years :D. Beautiful gun that you will enjoy for years.

    Very nice piece, hope to buy one myself on Monday. So far I haven't heard anything bad about them, even from a guy on You-tube that had a Vaquero and a Cattleman. He did say that the screws shake loss on the Uberti, but that is why the supreme being made Loc-tite. Are you having any problems finding ammo?

    I agree with Tom-you need to bring your revolver to a cowboy match and really start having fun.
