Title: uberti new model 3 2019
Post by: Nina2019 on April 02, 2019, 11:25:26 am
Any one fired  or held one of these?  My uberti 44 russian top break is too much of a reach to the hammer(for my thumb).  I believe it is cause of the frame spur just above the grip.  Any thoughts before I buy one of the new model 3s.  Looks the same as the Laramie by Berretta/Uberti.

I have an original Russian and a Uberti NM #3 you will notice the hump is far less in both look & feel...

However, I found the Uberti OEM walnut grips were rounder (thicker) I changed mine out to S&W hard rubber

it transformed the feel in my hand ( short fingers) and gave me a better purchase & thumb reach.

BTW...the S&W grips were a spot on fit , only mod was the location of the little frame pin hole ( about 1/6" off )
and a very minor rear step adjustment by the grips S&W logo. A coupla strokes with a flat file on the grip scales &
enlarge to grips pin location hole & Bob's your Uncle.

Major 2,
Thank you.   I might see if I can get one.  Taylors is the only place I have seen them for sale.  In retirement and trying to down size so 45LC is the only cal. I want to keep.  My Russian model 3 in 44R needs to go along with its 44R Spencer companion.

Mine was from Taylor's at the time they only had 2 and one of those had been ordered in advance.

They may or may not have them in stock.

BTW..."Looks the same as the Laramie by Berretta/Uberti "

not quite,
The Laramie had a (Ruger type) transfer bar under the hammer, the Uberti NM #3  has a firing pin .

I must have a very unique Beretta Laramie. Mine has both a firing pin and transfer bar. I have smallish hands that prefer the original Colt's style grips; Navy Model and SAA's. The Russian and Schofield replica Smith's have a bit too much stretch for my fingers but, the #3 New Model is 'Goldie Locks' just right.  Fits my hand like my original #3 DA Frontier .44-40
