Uberti 45 Colt
« on: December 26, 2016, 05:19:28 AM »
Shot this one Christmas afternoon. Mostly just because I felt like strapping on a new holster and cartridge pouch that I bought for my recent birthday. Still have to make a belt for it. I borrowed this belt from my Dragoon rig.

I guess both my spinner gongs decided to hibernate for a bit.


Typical pic from me. I will add that Uberti did a good job on this piece. I have narry a single complaint with it.


The holster is a copy of a Rock Island Arsenal 1881 pattern with the Forsyth style incorporation. This holster is pretty well built. I like the style mostly because it is something different from my typical holsters. And if I ever get a Schofield, it will be a good fit too. I am going to tear it apart down the road, make a pattern from the pieces, and then re-stitch and re-rivet it back together.


The cartridge pouch has a wood block insert and holds six 45 calibre rounds.


The holster and pouch will carry just fine and I do not mind a right hand twist draw. I have a couple of flap holsters for percussion revolvers made up in the same fashion. Not sure what type of belt I will make up for it yet.

Looks like a great rig, Steve. I have a cavalry flap holster somewhat in that design, my only beef is that it's a
bit too short for my Remmies. Fits the Colt Army models nice, though.

Ya Kirk, I seem to be aging on the exterior pretty fast.

Is that the Cattleman model? I have one in the 5-1/2" version. It has only had one cylinder full of rounds through it. As you say, very nice guns. Nice rig to carry it too.

Hi Emery! The revolver is what Cimarron calls the "Model P."

I have heard of the Cattleman, but it is not shown in my catalog.

Mine is a Cimarron also, in the 5-1/2" version. I believe it was unfired when I bought it from the widow of a friend a couple of years ago. This guy had a lot of new guns, but unfortunately tossed the boxes. The only gun I got that was in a box is my Uberti Walker. I didn't feel like braving the elements to take a fine picture like Scooby did (5* and wind chill of -15* to -20* here (jh) so propped it up on a stair step.

I've got a model P and had a Cattleman. The Cimarron is by far a better gun.



Also have a double rig made by Brazos Jack of Etowah Leather Works. He said it was the last rig he would ever make but dunno.

I HAD thought my gun was the Cattleman, but just saw the barrel stamp of Cimarron Arms when I dug it out to take the picture. That's what I get for "assuming". I guess I just thought that Uberti made the Cattleman and Cimarron cherry picked the best ones.
