Ever had a desire to own and shoot one of those classic special-order single action cattleman six-shooters that would have been right at home on the dangerous streets of Dodge City, Kansas? The Uberti 1873 Cattleman series replicates many popular variations of the Colt 1873 Single Action Army, a favorite of soldiers, lawmen, and outlaws alike and arguably the best-selling pistol ever produced. The 45 Colt 1873 Cattleman Hombre Revolver features a features matte-finish blue steel barrel and frame, with a brass trigger guard and backstrap. This revolver features a 4.75'' barrel and fluted six shot cylinder. One piece walnut grip.
I love this pistol, it shoots great. I have already shot about 300 rds through it and it works like a charm. A real tack driver! A friend of mine tried it and is now going to get one for himself. It comes with a VERY lite trigger so be careful!

I feel very lucky to have gotten this gun for $299 from Bass Pro Shops. The balance and accuracy of this gun even exceeded my Springfield XD 9mm, which is one of the most awesome pistols I've ever owned. My only regret is that I can't conceal it. My first shot with this pistol was dead center and cleaning it was so easy. Thanks Bass Pro.

Great revolver, great price
I purchased this in December and have fired a couple hundred rounds through her so far at assorted targets. Shoots very smooth, and is a lot of fun. I can't wait to take it as a deer hunting sidearm (yes, I know that's not what it's necessarily meant for, but it'll get the job done!)

A hoot to shoot
I bought the gun in October and really enjoy shooting it. 40+ years in military and law enforcement, not much gets me excited. I own a Ruger Bisley Stainless 45 LC and did not expect too much from this gun, but was surprised. I even carry it in a high riding strong side for CCW sometimes. I bought an aftermarked 45 ACP cylinder for it, and it is even more accurate than the 45 Colt. The finish is like black spray paint, but who cares. This gun is meant to be carried and shot. Only standard loads, no hot ones in Colt clones like this. Great price as well.

I am wanting to try and learn to shoot without aiming and just point and shoot like what was done in the old western days. I don't know if this is the gun to use or not. I would also like to know where I might can find some more old style single action pistols.
I was told that it is not a good idea to shoot this or any other gun that way. They say it damages the hammer each time you do it. I have no proof of this, but I've been around guns long enough that it seems it would cause damage. I'm sure you could get away with it for a while, but you will probably have to have it repaired at some time.
Although that type firing can be done, it is not recommended. You can point shoot it like a "cowboy" with fast draw but man that is VERY DANGEROUS. Check out the rigs local police use to protect themselves from fast draw mistakes and you will see what I mean. The local Melbourne, Fl. PD have steel deflector shields to protect them against errant draws.
Bough mine in October and love it. I added a 45ACP aftermarket cyclinder and it is extremeley accurate. I am retired and carried every type of handgun in law enforcement and military and a former firearms instructor. I recommend a double action 38 or 357 as a first gun. Unless you reload, ammo is high for a 45 Colt. But, the gun is durable, relable and works great. Money well spent. I even carry is as a CCW sometimes and feel well armed.
Bought mine in October and reload for it and shoot it all the time. Also bought a 45 acp cylinder and love it as well. At close range, say 15 yards I can hit a coke can say 90% of the time. For small game it would be great. You cannot hot load for this Colt clone like you can for a Ruger or Contender. Check the net, there are lots of hunters that swear by standard loads for deer and hogs. I think the fixed sights are really going to limit your range. I carry mine in hopes of a shot at a coyote one day. They are fun shooting guns and no reason you cannot hunt with one at reasonable ranges. I am not a handgun hunter, but have killed 100+ deer, elk, antelope and only one with a 44 mag handgun. If you are wanting to hunt deer size game, I would suggest you go to 44 mag or one the the Rugers or other guns you can shoot magnum loads in. Just my 2 cents. Enjoy.
You could, but that's not really what this firearm is designed for. This is a presentation and shooting enjoyment firearm, in my opinion. I wouldn't want to put this gun to any heavy duty rugged use, if for no other reason than the likelihood of of ruining the rather nice finish!
