I am interested in buying a Pistolero model and wanted to know if it had the new safety firing pin or the fixed style replicating the Colt. Some of the new release Ubertis have a new safety style that I do not care for at all. Anyone know the answer to this?

I can state unequivocally, that my Pistolero arrived without any sort of safety device involving the trigger, hammer, firing pin. The Pistolero does come with a "two notch" base pin. Thus if fully inserted to the second notch, the base pin prevents the hammer from dropping far enough to set off a live round.
An interesting note is, the base pin in my Pistolero is of an anti-rotational design, only notched on on side.
However that OEM base pin is ugly as sin and I used the extra Belt Mountain pin I had on the shelf to replace it.
My Pistolero is a handsome revolver, only initial negative I can find is the trigger feeles like it runs a good 5-6 pounds.
Range report and pics coming this weekend.

I have a 38-40 with the two position base pin and it is a real PIA. I finally replaced it with a 1st generation Colt base pin.
