Does anyone here have firsthand knowledge as to the quality of Uberti reproduction pistols?

I've owned one in 44-40. Fun gun. I thought the fit and finish was better than you would expect for the price point, which was around $500 at the time. I didn't shoot it a ton so I can't comment on how well they hold up. I was told by a gunsmith who does a lot of work on Colt SAAs that Uberti makes the SAA replacement parts for Colt. That would indicate the quality is ok. I don't know if it's true or not.

Two summers ago, I got to play with a new out of the box single action in 357. Ran some 38spec through it. We had some other stuff out, so it didn't really catch my attention. The finish seemed good enough, niceish, for the price, and action worked smoothly. A friend thought the trigger was good, but it didn't feel particularly special, probably over five pounds, like an okay blackhawk? There was a time when I would have bought one of their short barrel bird beak handle 45 colts, but there's lots of other fun stuff? It was a third person's revolver, along with a reproduction lever rifle, and my buddy says they've put a lot of rounds, better than a gallon of 38 brass when I saw the pickups, through both with no issues.

Stan,

I have owned 2 of their percussion revolvers for many years, both bought second hand at auction. I have not used them heavily but they seem to be of good quality and Uberti have generally a good reputation for quality here in the UK.

A gunmaker I know is very happy with his de luxe 1873 Uberti “Winchester” which he ordered in for his own use.

Hi Stan,

I have no experience with the Scofield models, but lots with the clones of percussions and single actions. I've got an Uberti Walker, a Bisley flat-top target,
and several SAA clones. I really like them.

Stan, an old pal of mine shot SASS with a pair of Uberti Schofields and they served well.

Another who shot more events used the Uberti SAA clones. He wore them out in a few years and switched to Rugers.

I had big plans to join them and selected a pair of the Hertiage 'Big Bore' SAA copies. Those are made by Pietta but have a transfer bar. That purchase turned out to be a mistake. They lack durability.

For heavy use in that game the Ruger would seem to be the best choice.

For light duty service the Uberti is fine.

Stan,
I've looked at that Uberti Schofield several times and absolutely love the looks and quick load design of the Schofield. Beautiful gun, would prefer it in .44 Spcl.

I have had an Uberti SA 38-40 for around 20 years and like it. It has blue barrel and cylinder with CCH frame (not too dark colors). I worked on trigger, but it wasn't bad to start with. I had a little trouble at first, ejecting cases, but found out it was my fault by turning the cylinder too far and holding it, causing the rim to hang up on the frame. When I learned to properly operate it, I had no more problems. It has a hammer block safety, I wonder if the Peita(?) Alex Baldwin was using has one.

It has blued cylinder and barrel, casehardened action and sights, and simulated buffalo horn grips. Pretty gun.

I appreciate the information. I'll probably try to put my hands on one, if that's possible, before "pulling the trigger".

I'm cowboy shooter. Not familiar with the Uberti Schofield, but I also don't recall hearing anything bad about them. I will note that modern production Schofields, either Uberti or out of production S&W don't do well with black powder. From what I remember it is a design flaw and has nothing to do with the Uberti or S&W copies. With BP they start to bind up after 30 rounds or so.

I currently have a Uberti 1873 rifle and a pair of 1851 Richards - Mason revolvers in .38 Special and the fit & finish is pretty good and I've only had minor issues with the revolvers: a firing pin had to be filed down slightly and the loading gate ring loosened up and would rotate slightly, but that is not something that would affect the Schofield.

Eye had a few in my hand does that qualify me ?

It's no Colt....not even a Ruger.

For a guy that's impressed with Yiltz shotguns I'd say go for it...

Plus you'll stand out in Church wearing it.

Tip....stop fantasizing watching the Cowboy Movies Tex
