Does anyone have one and have any thoughts about how it works and shoots?

Are you referring to the now discontinued Berretta Stampede made by Uberti? If so I would stray away from that particular model. They were fraught with problems and repair parts are nearly impossible to obtain.

I think he is talking about the new Uberti hammer with a firing pin that will slide back into the hammer when pushed (by your finger when it is at full cock or by a primer if the hammer is down on a live round), unless the trigger is pulled.

I think Uberti is calling this the Cattleman 2 (or II ? ).  Word is they will coerce the importers to sell this one by refusing to pay the liability insurance that they formerly paid on the standard Cattleman.

Ugh, I sure hope that isn't the case. I love the simplicity of the Colt SAA, and Uberti's repro's by extension.

At least the threat of these firing pins caused my lovely bride to tell me to go immediately to my local gun store and buy a new revolver last year.  I would have a very hard time deciding to buy a revolver that had one of those.

Unfortunately liability concerns are the way of the world and an industry here in the good old U.S.  People will say they like simplicity and rail against manufacturers that have installed transfer bars, etc.  However, when those same people have an accident it is SOMEONE else's fault no matter what or who caused the accident.  If someone gets hurt your best buddy will sue you as quickly as a total stranger.

Cosmetically, it looks better than the current hammer block that most imports have.  Liability, we can all thank the PC snowflakes and the ambulance chasing lawyers for it.

And who knows? It might even work.

I just mistakenly bought one thinking the gun had 4 clicks , bought it sight unseen which was a big mistake then worked the action and feel and hear 3 clicks . They don't have the safety notch and I really don't like the way it feels at all. In fact I'm trying to find out if I can put in the old style hammer and correct this problem . Anyone know if this can be done?
