Uberti Stallion round butt .38

#1 Postby Fukshot » Thu Jan 03, 2013 3:02 am

It's a little single action. Smaller frame than a colt copy, they make it as a ten shot .22 or in a short barrel, round butt .38 special.

This is my idea of lots of fun.

10 shot 22... I'll have to take this one into consideration. The one you linked is so purdy. :thanks: for the heads up.

It was your talk of a .22 single action that got me looking, but the prices weren't comparable to what you were talking about.

Unfortunately, the .22 isn't offered in the round butt configuration.

I was starting to think that after googleing a bit. Yeah, they and the Ruger SA 22s are a bit more than I want to spend right now, but I do appreciate the heads up. Now I have another option, when I decide to get a nice SAA.

You can't go wrong with a Single Six. They hold their value over time like no gun I have ever seen outside of antique Smiths and Colts.

I know, I'm really tempted to get one soon. I think I might try trading some AR stuff for one over on Calguns.

Stay away from the ones with scope mounts. Ugly.

I know right? Actually, I kinda prefer revolvers with just the minimal rear sight groove. If I try to do a trade I'll also be open to trade for a Bearcat. The only reason I'd prefer a Single Six over the Bearcat is for the added heft not so much the adjustable sights.

I'd like to be the immature fool to dwell on the totally un-remarked-upon use of the term "round butt."

Do you think Sir Mix-a-lot owns a .22? Would this be the one he would choose?

You can be right, the Anaconda isn't chambered for 22 :laugh:

I believe the comedian owns a bearcat. Small frame 22 revolvers just make sense to me.

Uberti makes a GREAT SAA, and that lil' .38 Spl is very nice indeed!

Guns like these piss me off about Ruger, the single six at the very least with a five round cylinder could handle the 38spec. The Bear Cat with a five round cylinder has been proven to handle the 32H&R, I think the super black hawk could easily handle the 480 with a 5 shot cylinder. I think those guns would sell.

What about a 7 shot .357 GP101 or 6 shot unfluted .357 SP101 in blued steel? Come to think of it, what about an 8 shot .357 Redhawk? Any of these would sell like crazy.

They made the redhawk in 357 years ago. The toughest 357 ever made. people didn't buy it.

Question for you revolver gurus:

I have a Pietta replica of a 1851 Navy Colt, which I think has really elegant lines.

One of the design elements I like is the rear sight notch on the (cocked) hammer. This is so damned clever, in that it gives a maximal sight radius, and it adds to the sleek look of the gun by keeping a rear sight off the frame/barrel.

My question is, has any other SA revolver copied this clever design element? If not, why not?

Did it have a 8 shot cylinder? A 6 shot .357 Redhawk would be too much gun for the round.

ALL the old percussion Colts had this as far as I know, and the conversion Colts...the 1873 SAA started with the grooved top strap.

Hammer groove rear sights are common on open top revolvers of all makes. The Lefaucheux pinfire revolvers had it.

The disadvantage is that hammers have a little wiggle to them.
