Another Uberti '73
« on: May 03, 2016, 03:35:05 PM »
I bought this used a few years ago, shot it a bit and put it away. I feel the need to blow the cobwebs out of the bore again!

My rifle is the 24" version and was built in 1996, 20 years old!

My stock is very plain, no figure at all to speak of. Still, I like it! L@.

Good looking rifle, I like the idea of the chambering, 45 long Colt.  The 1873 has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw the Jimmy Stewart movie.  I have handled and shot quite a few but never owned one, original or replica.  Enjoy it, what loads are you considering?

Very nice Mazo.  Uberti does a good job on their reproduction rifles.   The 1873 is still on my list of wants.   .45 Colt or 44 WCF either way would suite me fine.

Kevin, I shoot mostly black powder loads, but will (and have shot) load some light smokeless loads also.

Just like strawhat, the 1873 Winchester is a favorite for me too.

Those Uberti versions are a good way to go without spending a lot of time looking for a fair priced and shootable original.

Yep Mazo, you better blow the cobwebs out of her.
