Uberti 1873 Cattleman .22lr from Taylor's & Co.

Recommended Posts

I mentioned this revolver in the What's on order thread.

Picked it up today and here it is.

It's a 6 shot .22lr single action revolver with a case colored frame, blued steel grip frame, cylinder with recessed chambers and 4.75" barrel.

It has a hammer mounted firing pin like the Colt SAA and NO transfer bar.

Being all steel, the same size as a .45 SAA and having such small charge holes and bore makes it pretty heavy.

It is beautiful. A bargain at the $428 I paid for it.

Can't wait to shoot the crap out of it.

I had to send it back to Taylor's.

The ammo wouldn't seat deeply enough in the charge holes and dragged on the recoil shield to the point of total cylinder lock up.

I thought Italian law required all firearms to be proof fired. They must've used magic cartridges to test this one then.

Who knows when I'll get it back.

Didn't get to fire a single round.

Good thing it's pretty because that's all it's got going for it so far.
