    Any good? 4 5/8" barrel blued with wood grips for $407. Haven't really heard much about these revolvers.

    Good, yes good. Not a Ruger good, but good. These are the same folks that make Beretta and Benelli.

    For another $50 I could find a Ruger. This isn't one of the case hardened models. I knew about the Beretta/Benelli connection but wasn't sure where the quality stood on the revolvers.

    On this model versus a Ruger, you should ask yourself "what will I use it for?"

    If you're like me, and it'll just be a range gun, it's fine. Even still, quite a few people use them in competitions, although it seems many people prefer the Ruger for competing.

    It's a fine gun. Decent/fair price, no great deal to write home about.

    I would use it as a range gun. I already have a .357 but the SA cowboy revolvers have always been attractive to me. I'm looking for something on a great deal. They also had a used Ruger Super Redhawk 7.5" stainless for $675. Not much wear but not quite like new either. It's been fired but not used hard.

    I'm just addicted to revolvers right now. That's about all I can think about buying.

    $407 is a good deal. I wouldn't pass it up.
    Here's mine in 45lc.

    Just got the same Uberti Cattleman 1873 in 45lc ,from my LGS NIB, $385 + tx.

    Identical to my pic above .except .45LC and 5 1/2" barrel instead of 4 3/4" barrel above.

    Just FYI.

    Me too. Well. not the only thing I'm thinking about buying. Wouldn't mind doing a 9mm AR build.

    But I share your love of wheel guns.

    My opinion, and just that, is that the .357 Magnum cartridge deserves a gun with good adjustable sights, and the Ruger Blackhawk just fills the bill.

    With a .357 Magnum, a full ranges of .38 ASpecial and .357 Magnum cartridges are available in a wide selection of bullet weights, plus an unlimited variety of handloads. It takes good adjustable sights to wring out the best of this selection. Plus the Ruger sights just give you a better sight picture than any fixed sight Single Action revovler.

    I have to agree. That is probably why I'm so happy with my 686 and all of the 158gr handloads that I make. I can adjust the site for how hot the load is that I'm shooting. I would have to adjust my POA to stay in the bull with a grooved rear sight revolver. Maybe the Ruger Blackhawk is the gun to set my sites on if I want to scratch this cowboy itch.

    The Uberti has the "4" clicks like the original cowboy guns, the Blackhawk does not. Not a big thing but if you want something closer to the original the Umberti fits the bill. I have both and love them both. I have worked up a load that is very accurate in the Umberti for CAS and used it exclusively when I shoot. I also have a different load for the Blackhawk. I do not shoot the .38 in any of my .357 guns. You might also want to look into a Cimarron Arms cowboy revolver.

    What year is it? Pre 1962? They have not made a 4 click model for a long time.

    I've got a Uberti Cattleman. I picked it up new from my lgs for $250 last year. It's nothing fancy, but it shoots great, and I love shooting it.

    If accuracy is what you're looking for then I'd try out a Bisley model. Mine's a flat top target Cimarron with 7 1/2" barrel, which is actually made by Uberti. Cimarron stopped selling them, but Uberti has a very nice Bisley. Mine's a 44-40, but it's a real tack driver and those who said they didn't like a Bisley shot mine over the years and were very impressed. A couple even picked one up. They sure had a reason using this configuration for target shooting. It works for me and maybe it will for you.

    This one is a 1958 vintage. But Three-Screw models are still found on the used gun market, especially keep my eye out for unconverted ones. I have one .22, two .357s, and five .44s. One of my .44s is a .44 Special that was a .357 Magnum originally.

    Incidentally, 1973 was the beginning of the New Model series.

    When I saw the pic it looked like pre 1962. The next year they started to have little "wings" on the back sight. Nice gun, wish I could find an older model in such good shape. Most I have seen for sale look pretty bad, but if someone has a nice one they keep it or hand it down.

    So true the Flat Tops and small grip frames were neat. This is a Ruger Lipsey one of 500 new Flat Tops with an extra cylinder.
