Hi Everybody!
I recently purchased a real nice Rodeo in 44 Special, with a 5-1/2" barrel. I searched the forum and could not find much for information on them. Does anyone here own one? If so, how has it worked for you in regards to accuracy and handloading? Thank you!

I have a pair of them marked 44 Russian/ SW .

Like all the USFA guns exceptionally good pistols.  Every bit the equal to  my Colt .44 Specials.  I most typically reload using Unique and a 240 SWC.   Found my 44s (4 pistols one '73 rifle) to be very accurate with that load.

  Congrats no your find. The .44 Special is my favorite revolver cartridge.

Roundsworth,
First, and foremost, welcome to our forum!
Scroll down to the 4th entry on our forum list and you will find a topic listed as "Link to Articles."  Click on the link with the "USFA_2007_catalog.pdf" extension and you will find a bit of information that is relevant to your gun.
Again, welcome.  Hope you stay with us.

Thank you, Captain! Along with my Rodeo, I have a new Uberti 1876 in 50-95. This forum seems to be a great place to acquire knowledge for these two guns. Cheers!

Very nice! The colors are brilliant. The barrel markings on my Rodeo do not indicate 'Russian', as on yours.
