Uberti® 45 Colt 1873 Cattleman Hombre Revolver
I love this pistol
I absolutely love this pistol. I've always been a fan of westerns and SAA revolvers but could never quite talk myself into buying one...until I held this fella in my hand. It is so well balanced and the action is very tight. There is no sloppiness in the cylinder or trigger. I love the way it shoots also. I own a Glock 23 that has a fair amount of upward recoil from the travel of the slide. This revolver has almost no felt recoil by comparison. Very easy to shoot and a nice, quick, crisp trigger. I found some Hornady Leverevolution in .45 Colt and carry those for hogs/yotes when in the field. This pistol is not a wall-hanger, although it looks good enough to be one. It's a workhorse. If your in the field a lot and want a reliable, strong handgun to carry, This is the one to get...plus it's John Wayne Cool!

A Good Replica
This is a good gun for the money, and for those who want the traditional look and feel of the Old West Colt Cattleman ("Peacemaker"). Of note is the trigger, which is ~very~ classic Colt Cattleman in design. All you have to do is touch the trigger and it will fire smoothly. It is a solidly made firearm which breaks down, cleans, and re-assembles very easily. The finish of both the metal and wood parts is clean and quality.
In my opinion this firearm is made for presentation and the enjoyment of firing an Old West "Peacemaker". It is not for rugged duty usage such as, say, going out hunting. Combine this well-finished gun with a western holster rig and you'll be ready for an enjoyable afternoon of western shooting.

MOST bang for the LEAST buck!
I bought this gun at the price expecting a decent, serviceable competition sidearm. What I GOT was a beautifully finished, perfectly fit, extremely accurate gun! This work of art is perfectly accurate out of the box. Weight and balance are unreal, and this from a man who owns vintage Colts from pre-1900. I WILL be buying a second to compete. If you are looking for a gun cheap enough to justify field abuse, yet be PROUD to carry, BUY...THIS...GUN!

good bang for your buck
purchased a uberti .45 long colt revolver 7.5in. barrel with nickel finish, really enjoy shooting this cowboy revolver. i feel like matt dillon on the streets of dodge city keeping the peace and keeping festus and doc. from hurting each other.better have your ear plugs in while shooting it has quiet a POP. the revolver has sum weight to it that keeps the recoil down.the only down side is that .45 long colt ammo is hard to find, except at the BASS PRO SHOP they have 2 or 3 brands on the shelf , prices are the same or cheaper than the other gun shops. keep on plinking JERRY
