    Here a two of mine. Got them both back in the 70s and they are still working well enough to keep.

    What kind of grips are on the 5 1/2" Model? They look really sharp with the blued and case color finish.

    Those are grips I made back in the 70s from a piece of antler I got at Golden Age Arms in Delaware, Ohio.

    I like smooth stag grips and put them on a variety of my revolvers.

    THR won't let me repost the photo but it is here.

    Thanks Kevin, thought they might be smooth stag but couldn't tell for sure from the photo. Nice job of making those grips.

    And a Taylor's Uberti 1873 Cattleman photo engraved:

    Both are nicely made, good shooting with modest 45 colt loads.

    I'd post mine but it looks exactly like Stoky's. Birdshead Uberti in .45, love that gun.

    Beautiful revolvers, guys. I like the looks of the birdshead grips, but just can't get used to the way they smack the palm of my hand.

    My 5 1/2" Uberti Model P Black Powder frame in .44 Special I bought new about 4 years ago. (ETA, really, it's a Cimarron, by Uberti) Took this pic one evening last week while I was experimenting with some Power Pistol and 255 gr. cast SWC's.
    This ol' girl never lets me down and this 50 yd. group is the main reason she's fast becoming my favorite single action!

    My first revolver

    I own five autoloaders, and never even used to consider a revolver. But, after I saw a few of the color case hardend guns, I had to have one. This is a Traditions (made by Pietta) in .45 colt. Just got it last week, and only shot 40 rounds so far, so I'm still getting userd to the grip, and cocking on handed. But it is a LOT of fun to shoot. NoW I've got another set of dies, AND brass and bullets on the way; I'm hooked!

    The 45 long Colt is an easy cartridge for which to reload. I have two recipes and that is all I need. Both use a 260 grain cast bullet (Lyman 454424, 454190) or similar. The first recipe is the original, fill the case with black powder and seat the lubed bullet. I have a revolver similar to yours with a 5 1/2" barrel. I get 900 fps with black powder. The next load is the same bullet but I use Unique to get the same velocity.

    Either load will anchor the Ohio white tailed deer, with plenty left over so be careful.

    I have other loads but those two get 99% of my attention.

    Good luck and enjoy your revolver.

    JP Saeur and Sohn 44 magnum. Bad picture, good revolver. I think it was Hawes who imported them. You can often get good deals on them, since they are not well-known.

    Ruger Vaqueros aren't quite a clone, but close enough for my tastes - my New Vaquero .357:

    I don't have an 1873.

    How about a Cimarron/Uberti 1871/72 Open Top in 44 Special?

    100_0797_zpscon3zm8f.gif

    I've got another one just like it in the layaway bin at Ali-Babba's House O Guns. Well, the snake is on the left side on that one.

    Excuse the orange nail polish on the front sight. My eyes ain't what they used to be even.

    It does attract attention on a range full of plastic 9mm's. :D
