You are looking at generic Uberti offerings.

Cimarron still carries the '66 in 32wcf, 38wcf, 44wcf, 44 Spcl, 38 Spcl, 45 Colt.  Here's one:
Of course, finding one in stock or waiting on a list is another matter.
The Leather Shop / Suspender Holster
« Last post by BrushyCreekDouglas on Yesterday at 05:01:38 PM »

Good Evening Gents,

One of the holsters I offer is a version of the Suspender holster pictured in “Packing Iron” pictured below is my prototype and as you can see it’s seen some use. I’ve packed a brace of SAAs in these around the farm and have to say they’re some of my favorite holsters. They ride well and are surprisingly comfortable. They conceal my 4 3/4” Ubertis very well and with a shirt or coat over them they’re practically invisible.

I make mine from 6-7oz Hermann Oak finished with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They’re sewn with very high quality linen thread waxed with coad. I try to keep my materials as close as possible to those used in the period.

Changes I made to the design from PI were slightly refined flaps and an open toe. Sometimes I’ll carry a brace of 7 1/2” guns in them and find they have no problems with the sign clearing the toe.

Pardon my crude work on this holster, it’s rather rough. Was experimenting with a couple new tools.

God Bless everyone and hope y’all have a great rest of the week!
USFA CSS / Question re box labeling
« Last post by DutchNichols on Yesterday at 04:43:32 PM »
I've owned quite a few USFA's over the years. There seemed to be several label types.
the bluish ones which were Uberti guns I believe. I've also seen a cpl other print styles.
I also have bought some from original owners who said there wasn't a label of
any type.
So did some go out without box end labels??

My thanks in advance.
Gunsmithing / Re: .44 Magnum Cylinder Throats

It's actually a Smith & Wesson 629-3.  (Definitely non-CAS.)  It doesn't lead nearly as badly as a 629-1 I had with .432 throats, but I'm going to have it adjusted to .430.  That way I'll be able to use the same bullets in my .44 Ruger, as well.
Follow UP  I obtained an older model Uberti with floating firing pin.  The ones with 4 click hammer and slots in the hammer where one can see the strut and some of the other mechanizm in the hammer.  It has functioned flawlessly with my reloads using CCI large pistol primers.  The older pistol hammer cocks noticeably easier than the brand new cattleman II.  It also has a lighter trigger pull.  I did notice when I had the grips off a washer between frame and the mainspring.  Have not had the grips off the brand new gun to see if the washer is user installed or factory.

The new model I received and posted about in this forum was working well until stage 5 of the May match went bang click click click click on both state 5 and 6.  After match I cleaned it really well.  I am guessing some of the Arizona grit got into the firing pin channel of the frame preventing firing pin from properly impacting.   After cleaning the pistol worked flawlessly for 50 rounds fired by 5 different shooters and also worked flawlessly in the June ACSA CAS match.

Doesnt look like they are currently offering it in anything but .45 Colt or .38 special.  I know Chiappa used to make a 92 in .38-40 (and since I want it for Wild Bunch --a 92 would be just fine.) but that doesn't appear to be offered right now.  I see a few original 92s on GB, but the condition of those is a crap shoot.

Jesus, that's a little aggressive. I paid all of $1400 for mine, nine months ago and nobody bid against me.
