Just to give you all an update I decided to buy a Uberti pistol. I did some checking and from what I hear they manufactured the black powder pistols that were sold by Colt. I figure if Colt thought they were good enough it was OK with me. I look at it as a double win because I still have negative feelings toward Ruger so they don’t get my money. Plus I save a couple hundred bucks by buying the Uberti. I didn’t place the order yet because it is too dam cold to shoot outside. The pain in my back and knees gets real bad if I stand outside in the cold weather too long and black powder is too Smokey to shoot indoors. Maybe I’ll get lucky and they will run a sale when I am ready to order. But I made up my mind after reading all the opinions on this forum and another forum I post on.

Uberti makes beautiful high quality firearms.
Here is a link to the Uberti Home Page & from there you can see their entire line of firearms.
Folks say that the \"fit & finish\" of modern Uberti is better than the older original Colt pistolas that are coveted so much.

A few years back while at the local outdoor range on a Saturday morning (Rio Salado for you local Phoenix area folks) I had a blast watching the SASS Cowboy Shoot. I enjoyed it so much I didn't even shoot that day. Anyway, I decided I wanted to join SASS and start shooting their events. I ran home and started researching and wound up buying a Uberti .45LC SAA, a good cowboy leather belt and holster, historically accurate, not a TV western rig. To make a long story short, I never shot SASS. I only shot the Uberti a couple of times on the range but absolutely loved it. I also took it with me a time or two when a good buddy of mine(Prospector, a member here) and I went prospecting. But I spent more time simply holding that Uberti and simply admiring it than anything else. It's fit and finish was absolutely beautiful. In my research I could not find one bad comment about it. Most of my reading on the Uberti SAA has most people agreeing that they were, indeed, better built and finished than the original Colt ever was.

I sold that gun and holster to a friend (nighthawk, a member here) and have regretted it. I miss not having it to hold and admire, but I doubt if it would have seen much range time. Uberti does some impressive work. I have never used one of their black powder pistols but have no doubt you will be very happy with it. :kay:

By the way, I split this thread for others that may have an interest in this pistol. I thought it rated a thread of it's own :)

I owned one .45LC. It shot great. Traded it off, but I still liked it.
