Uberti Remington 1890
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:29:17 PM »
One of the local gun stores has an Uberti made Remington 1890 police in .357 Mag for sale. They want $350 for it. I'm considering it.

that would be kinda hard to do since the .357 wasn't invented until around 1934 I believe.
but they keep doing it anyway. Making revolvers and rifles in calibers that did not exist in the time period of question! }),

One thing we shooters can do is not buy the weapons that are not historically correct.
No demand then they won't make them.
If I want a modern .357 or 44 or such to shoot, I'll go by one,
But why try to reinvent history?

Different point of view. I see no reason not to have firearms in a range of calibers that cater to varying wishes. I see no harm coming from an 1890 in .357, as long as it helps get more people into shooting etc. The more the merrier is my take... (T^
I recently mentioned to a friend that I was getting more interested in Black Powder. He said, "What, like Malcolm X and the Black Panthers?"

Frankly, that whole "historically correct" thing is way over done, IMO. Let's say that the Remington 1875 was still being produced by Remington. Does anyone have any doubts it would be produced in a number of calibers that didn't exist when it was first produced? I don't. So, now Uberti is producing the design. What is the big deal if the produce it in modern, popular calibers?

Hi Electric, IMO period firearms are being chambered for .357 to allow using .38 Special for cowboy action shooting.

I'm happy for you Electric Miner. Hope you can get it and enjoy it. isn't that what it's all about shooting and having fun with what you have? The shop I go to here has some Uberti made Colt look alikes in 22/22mag, 357, 45LC, and 44mag. Nice looking pistols. I'd like to get my hands on one of each, but not happening. :'(
If it's not broke don't try fixin it.
