Classic shooter John Northmore ponders Uberti’s long barrelled revolver based on their single-action Cattleman. Kindly supplied by Shooting Sports Magazine.
Legend has it that dime novelist, Ned Buntline, presented special order Colt revolvers with long barrels and detachable stocks to Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and other noted ‘Old West’ celebrities. Based on this story, the long-barreled ‘Peacemakers’ with their special target sights came to be called ‘Buntline Specials’. Revolving rifles and carbines were among the first effective repeating rifles. Models produced by Colt were carried in the Mexican War and the Apache Wars of the Old Southwest.
Uberti have been producing reproductions of famous Western rifles for decades and are rightly one of the leading names in top quality historic firearms. Uberti’s range of centrefire rifles is probably the most comprehensive available, and covers a wide breadth of lever gun development, from the very first 1860 ‘Henry’ rifle, to the later single shot 1885 ‘High Wall’ target rifles.
The Winchester 1873 lever action rifle is the definitive ‘gun that won the west’. Ubiquitous in any Western book, film or historical source, the 1873 is a gun that is instantly recognisable the world over. Uberti’s reproduction of the Winchester 1873 is a gun that is faithful to the original in every respect. Available in a variety of calibres, our favourite is the option offered in .357 magnum.
