    Last week I was at the local Pawn Shop when they put out a Uberti Cattlemen in 357 Mag. It was used, but super clean. It was priced $399.95
    I took a look at it and it appeared that it had never been shot. I told myself if it stayed on the shelf for a week, I would try to buy it.

    Well, I stopped by the shop last Friday and it was still there. I asked for a better price and was told to make an offer. I offered $350. The owner said that it had only been out for five days and would think about my offer.

    Well, I stopped by on my way home today and it was still there. I asked the owner if he was going to sell it to me today for $350. He said no because he had to still pay Uncle Sam his money. I told him that I would pay the tax and he said sold.

    It’s raining right now so I can’t take picks outside, but here are some I just took in the shop.

    I'm glad you don't live around me, there wouldn't be any good deals to be had because you would buy them all before I got a chance to look at them.
    I have to admit that gun looks like my old Jaeger 44-40 I had a long time ago.
    I wish I still had it.
    I have to agree someone may have shot it one time and decided they didn't like it. It looks unfired.
    Another good deal on a fine firearm.

    I've been eyeballing one of those in 45 Colt at a LGS. It has the flat black finish though and I'm not real fond of that on anything non milsurp or AR. If it stays there long enough I may break down and buy it.

    Gunny, I strongly believe that gun shop owner knows you enough to let come around his hook.
    By the way, please post some targets when you can and nice catch on that six gunner.

    Looks like you got a good one there and a great price. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    $350+tx, nice. Looks pretty. I've always wondered how well the cartridge Italian Repros held up and shot.

    Maybe a range report will be posted.

    I had two Cimmarron guns (Uberti made) they were solid and dependable guns. Took a doe with a .45 Colt in the 7th cav special they had. I still want a Schofield model in .45 Colt or even .44 special.

    A fine looking single action! I like the color case hardening, the blued finish, and the one piece wood grip. Reminds me somewhat of my Beretta Stampede.

    The Cattleman 2 is the current model with the retractable firing pin (passive drop safe feature) so it can’t be very old. Good score.

    Now to get you out to a cowboy action match. The .38/.357 is popular. Cheaper to feed, easier to shoot quickly.

    That is a beautiful piece. I got a chance to shoot one a few years back. I busted two 32oz gatoraide bottles at 60 yards with it. It was a struggle to hand it back to him.
    I hope yours shoots as well as his did.

    Time for you to buy a cowboy hat and a matching repeater.

    Are you sure it is a Cattleman II? I bought this Cattleman used about 15 years ago.

    The rivet in the hammer suggests to me it is a Cattleman with a fixed firing pin. Here is the hammer on mine. Hmmmm, the rivet on your hammer is in a slightly different position. Does the firing pin retract?

    Somebody asked how they hold up. They are not Rugers, but they hold up fine if you stick to SAAMI Max loads. I shot mine for years in CAS with full house 45 Colt Black Powder loads.

    And I always wore a cowboy hat and boots when I shot it.

    I was into CAS about 19 years ago. I have two EMF Dakotas in 45 Colt that I used back then.
    I have a Marlin 1894 in 357 Mag also.

    It's box has Cattlemen II all steel on it. The grip frame is stell.
    I’m going to take it to work with me tomorrow and shoot a few rounds in the test fire room.

    The Cattleman II does not have the "4" clicks when cocking.
    The new lock work has changed that, it is like cocking a Ruger
    single action. Uberti is well known for quality, this gun will shoot
    very well.

    The colors in the case hardening are very well done. Congrats on your new pistola.

    Great Deal!. The first USFA frames were made by Uberti, so I have high confidence the rest of the pistol is quality. Love the case colors

    There are several YouTube videos on removing that finish and rebluing it. I did just that to my Hombre model with Van's bluing and it came out very nice. Internals are the same for all models, so they all shoot the same.

    I got mine for $269 out the door about a year ago at a gun show. Pre-owned, but looked like it had never been shot.

    Really do like the case colors on the OP gun though!

    Was the Stampede made by Uberti? Benelli owns Uberti, who in turn is owned by Beretta.

I have essentially the same revolver, except it has an octagonal barrel and is a Taylor’s & Co. it gets fed a steady diet of 38 handloads, and occasionally 357’s. Has the retractable firing pin, and has been faultless through about 2500 rounds so far. A really great shooting revolver. 25 yard group.

    Yep it was made by Uberti. I was at a gun show and had just picked up a Rossi Model 92 in .45 Colt and so I felt I needed a single action revolver to go with it. Saw several used ones (was greatly tempted to get an older Uberti in .44 Special), when I came across the Stampede, new in the box. The finish on it looked great and of course it was chambered for .45 Colt! Did a bit of negotiating on the price and went home with my pair of Western Aces!
