    Does anybody have any experience with the Beretta Stampede 45 Colt? I was thinking of picking one up, but I'd like some expert opinions first.

    It would be a nickel model.

    If you're not getting a Colt or Ruger, I'd stick to Uberti. I've heard horror stories about their customer service amongst the CAS shooters.

    Beretta is Uberti.

    Not real nuts about a Uberti with a makeshift adaptation to the transfer bar ignition system.

    Beretta

    I have a Beretta Stampede Bisley.Mine is .38/357 with a 4 5/8" barrel.
    I am very impressed with it.It has become a favorite to take to the range.

    Go to the cowboy action forum (fora?) like sassnet.com and run a search.

    Cowboys shoot a lot of rounds and really wring 'em out.

    No one in my club shoots Beretta revolvers but I I found one I liked, I'd buy it. Yes, it's a Uberti with a transfer bar added but it's not made of spun glass or anything.

    One of the big differences between Uberti & Beretta or Ruger is the transfer bar.

    The original Colts, like the Ubertis, have a hammer mounted firing pin.
    Load one, skip one, load four.
    That leaves the chamber under the firing pin open.

    Beretta, Ruger & others use a transfer bar to engage the firing pin.
    MUCH less chance of accidental discharge - but also less authentic.
