Hi All, Wanted to report on the first firing of my Uberti 1875 Remington .45. I picked it up yesterday at Sportsman's Warehouse and took it out to the range today. I'm intending to use it with black powder cartridges, but I shot it today with Hornady 255 grain Cowboy loads. I don't have my reloading press up yet (or any saved brass) and the store only had smokeless rounds. I'm pretty happy with the gun overall. It had some drag lines on the cylinder when I bought it, which is annoying, but hopefully not an indication of messed up timing. Here are a couple specific items that I noticed. The Good Accuracy of this gun is excellent. At 10 meters, the gun shoots perfectly with the rounds listed above. No front sight adjustment seems to be needed, which is nice. The front sight blade is nice and thin and the sight-picture through the frame channel is excellent. I'm looking forward to shooting the gun at longer distances. Fit and finish look very good. Bluing is even and the case hardening looks nice. Screws are all crisp and I see no signs of marring anywhere on the gun, except for the previously mentioned drag line on the cylinder. The "Bad" Grips are "ok". They don't look bad, but they have sharp corners on the butt that dig into the heel of my palm every time I fire. I will probably spend some time smoothing them out to see if I can make them more comfortable. I may possibly make a new set to experiment with grip shape and sizes as well. The 1/4-cock-safety position is weird and takes some getting used to. I'm used to my 1858 C&B and am often dropping the hammer into the 1/4 cock position, instead of all the way down. I'd love to hear what other owners of this gun think of the feature. I was loading 5-round cylinders, so I'm not relying on it. Does seem to work though. The Ugly I had a couple instances where it felt like the cylinder jammed. Am not 100% sure of this, but I know that in one case I had the gun loaded with the hammer down, pulled the hammer back into 1/2 cock and tried to rotate the cylinder and it felt stuck. Pulled the hammer all the way back and the cylinder rotated. I'm hoping there is nothing mechanically worn on the bolt or cam that's causing this. I admit that I broke one of my rules by firing the gun today before completely stripping, cleaning and oiling and then putting it back together. I had the cylinder out last night and ran some patches down the barrel, but that's all. One thing I noticed today is that unfired cartridges are loose-as-a-goose in the cylinder. I actually wondered if one of the cases had backed out and was getting hung up on the rim somewhere on the recoil shield. Hopefully once I start using reloads, some of that looseness will be addressed by the cases having expanded a bit. How are other owners of this gun liking it?
