    Bought an Uberti

    I picked this up the other day at the LGS. DSCN0794.JPGDSCN0797.JPGDSCN0799.JPGDSCN0800.JPGIt's brand new and I really like the quality of the piece. I hope to take it shooting soon. The barrel is 3 1/2". Yahoody did a thread where he spoke about the quality of Uberti's and I have to say he's right. But when it comes to SAA's I want a Colt. I think Uberti has it's act together and is bringing out some quality guns for us.

    They've made a lot of historic designs for longer than most of the original companies did. Or designs that no one else has attempted since they were "new" guns. The Colt lightning, Henry and Winchester brass framed rifles, and more come to mind. Doing so since 1959.

    If you want to see a good video of Uberti revolvers being made, it's here https://www.wideopenspaces.com/how-u...vers-are-made/

    Note they are forging their parts, milling, fitting, and polishing and finishing. All things we never see if/how Colt is doing it internally.

    Nice video. I know in the video they show the cyanide method for Hardening but you can order on with real case hardening too. Thanks for sharing.

    I currently have two Ubertis (both marked Cimarron), a Flat Top Target Bisley, and an 1885 High Wall, and have been very impressed with the quality of both of them. I have little interest in their standard SAA clones, but many of their other offerings really catch my attention, like the OP's S&W. It's great that they're offering so many of the classics that are no longer available so that those of us without unlimited funds can enjoy the experience of shooting these great guns.

    Marco,

    I was lucky when I bought the Bisley Flat Top; I bought it immediately after seeing a heads-up from Wyatt Burp for a GB listing. The Flat Top Target Bisley has been my favorite SAA variation since I was a kid reading through my dad's old copy of Haven and Beldon's History of Colt Revolvers. I've promised Mr. Burp because of his heads-up that he will have first right of refusal in the extremely unlikely event that I decide to sell it.

    Best regards,
