    Nice Uberti, congrats. Nothing better than a .45 Colt. I was in the local Cabela's yesterday buying powder. Had to go over and check out all the single actions while the salesman went to the powder locker. Peacemaker clones are like tater chips, you can't have just one. Check out a Pietta next time, they really know how to make an accurate barrel.

    Just got rid of all my single actions but one. A stainless Super Blackhawk 44 magnum. I keep it loaded with 44 specials. When I need a big handgun I got it.

    Well, I certainly had an interesting day.

    My brand new revolver broke.


    Zero clicks upon cocking the hammer. It would thumb back, but there was no half-cock or full-cock. It would just drop the moment thumb pressure started to relax. It worked fine yesterday and this morning ... but around 4:00-ish - No Bueno. First time in over 30 gun purchases that I ended up with a lemon. Oh well, I guess it happens.

    So, I packed everything back up in the box and headed back out to Cabela’s to see if they’d be any help in getting my new gun sent back for warranty repairs.

    To my surprise, they merely apologized for my inconvenience and swapped it out for another one. (Technically, they “bought” mine back for what I paid them & sold me another one at the same price.) I certainly didn’t expect that, and it was a welcome surprise in the customer service department. It only cost me the time needed to do another background check. Thanks Cabela’s!

    And to top it off, my new one has much nicer looking color case hardening. (The first one was decent, but this one is breathtaking - my phone's pics don’t really do it justice) I’m impressed all around.

    ... Let’s just hope this one holds up.

    My choice hands down is 44 Mag. 44 Special is fun to shoot and you have the option to shoot mag loads. Since I reload my go to hunting load is 240g at 1,100 to 1,200 fps, stiff but not crazy. Special loads at 950 fps kill deer cleanly and are very easy on the wrist. Load down to 700 fps and you have an accurate load that slams steel while being super easy to shoot (kitty cat load).

    I have the Evil Roy version (5.5") and it's the nicest SA I've ever held. I'll never buy another transfer bar Ruger the rest of my days.

    Good choice. You will not be disappointed.

    Get a Blackhawk in 45 Colt or buy a hundred dollars of 22 magnum and stick with that Single Six
