How good are Ubertis and other such reproductions?
>>
>>54153645
They’re fine. Do some research since there are little things like for different reasons. For example, Pietta has larger grips than uberti on their Remington 1858s, which isn’t historically accurate, but at the same time, appreciated by those with larger hands. I think uberti is more discreet than pietta when it comes to placement of manufacturing name, and info, which some larpers want because they’re trying to look the part.

>>54153729
Appreciate ya anon.

Are there any other reproduction makers other than uberti and pietta?
Maybe something more high quality or low price.

Cimmaron?

I remember years ago I came across these reproduction groups because of a little guntuber channel with a heavyset fella.

Used to watch this guy all the time. There was a point in my life where I was almost hoodwinked into turning against the 2a. Various guntubers, even if they are fudds or think their should be restrictions, changed my mind to.. ALL GUN LAWS ARE INFRINGEMENTS. ALL ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
>>
>>54154101
I think only restriction should be "have a gun safe".
When at home no restriction on storaging.

Uberti's pretty good if you get their custom shop work (you have to pick up in brescia though so no mutts allowed)
>>
>>54154874
Hmm. Now that doesn't look like a double action.

It is DA, not original colt but a period clone patterned after Pocket/Navy revolvers.

Depends on the gun and what you are trying to do. For example Uberti's 45LC Schofields will seize up in under 6 shots with black powder because they modifications to make it fit 45LC removes a lot of protection the original design had against fouling. The Schofield replicas also had an issue where earlier runs had way too large a cylinder gap.

So generally, you should look up based on the individual firearm and not the Uberti brand as a whole.

does anyone make a good Schofield repro?

Uberti?

Navigating who makes what in Italy is a pain in the ass.
Only a few companies actually manufacture the firearms and many rebrand them and then they're brought in by an importer. For all the brand names, there are maybe only 3 companies that actually make the reproduction firearms.
Quality is fine, the last shit one was Armi San Marco and they've been up shit creek for decades.

Uberti one is good as long as you dont want to shoot BP
>>
>>54157604
Uberti but do not shoot period correct loads, only smokeless .45 Colt (and nothing hot!).
>>
>>54158113
Why no BP?

Doesn't sound like a good gun then

In modifying the cylinder to accept 45 Colt (as the original 45 Schofield is shorter) they removed a gas ring/ledge which kept black powder fouling from getting into the cylinder axle. So with black powder it will foul up very fast until the cylinder won't rotate anymore until you clean it, compared to other period.

Note this is only an issue with the Uberti 45 Colt replica.
>>
>>54153645
Ubertis have problems with soft hammer cams. Whereas on the Colt, the hammer cam was a separate part of the hammer, appropriately hardened and able to be replaced in needed. The Uberti hammer cam is part of the hammer and not really hardened, so when it wears out you're looking at a replacement hammer which is about $85 or $90.

I know all this because I have a Uberti 1873 with these same problems.
>>
>>54158187
Hmmmm, I'm looking at the 44 russian one though, wonder if the same problem exists.
>>
>>54158394
Probably not, because the problem specifically came from lengthening the cylinder for 45 Colt. An original cylinder should not have the issue.
>>
>>54158484
Could you get that Uberti Schofield and just switch out the cylinders or no
>>
>>54158492
Dunno where you would get one.
Just buy the 44 Russian Model 3 if you are worried about BP
>>
>>54158166
It's a perfectly fine gun. But since its a break action revolver you don't want to shoot anything hot least you fuck up your hand.
>>
>>54158394
Apparently the ".44 Russian" models will accept .44 special cartridges. I don't know why they'd extend the chamber silently but I'd check carefully if I were you.

As for problems with fouling, I doubt Uberti has different frame/cylinder sizes for .44 vs .45 Schofields. Can anyone confirm?
>>
>>54154101
Cimmaron is just an importer, all their guns are made by Uberti and Pedersoli.

Do you have a website or a number?
