1875 Uberti Outlaw
« on: March 26, 2021, 05:32:52 AM »
My 1858 Remmie's were my re-introduction to handguns about 2-3 years ago around the same time I found and joined this august group of aficionados.

I thoroughly enjoy the BP guns but needed something to shoot indoors so I bought a pair of Ruger 'Old' Vaquero single actions in 45LC ( I was thinking about CAS) but the barrel lengths were 5.5". I really like the feel of the longer barrel revolver so after having them for a couple of years I decided to start looking around - and I found the 1875 reproduction by Uberti, I watched a bunch of recent YouTube video reviews and it seem to be get good marks all things considered. I put my Ruger's up for sale , sold one last week so yesterday I ordered the Uberti 1875 Outlaw, this one is supposed to come with (2) cylinders 45LC and 45ACP. Nice thing is, I hope, I can use the same holster rig I use for my 1858 Remmie's. Just waiting on the registration transfer so the dealer can ship.

I'm sure you will enjoy your 1875,   I have one and like shooting it but it's not the same as an 1858 at all.  The feel is completely different.
As far as your holsters go it depends on who made them and how well they fit your 1858.   If they are a good fit for your '58s then the 1875 will be too tight.   The ejector assembly is the problem.    If the 1858's fit loose then the 1875 might have enough room to slide in.

I purchased an 1875 uberti last week.
Shot it yesterday.
What gorgeous revolver.
I like the grip style and how I can get a solid high grip on it.
Prolly put a 100 rounds threw it.
Not all that exited about the 1\4 cock hammer block but it is unobtrusive enough.

I looked at a nickel one in the gun shop the other day but it was in .45 Colt and I don't need another caliber to reload for. I was tempted tho and if I hadn't found the Richards Mason I might would have bought it. It definitely has a different feel to it and I believe it's heavier.

I prefer 44-40.

Me too Hawg but I also have 45 colt.    44-40 is getting more and more scarce.     My Outlaw is 45 colt.

I do!  Revolvers chambered in 44-40 are harder to find as are empty brass.    The range scavengers up here don't even save them anymore.  They say it's not worth cleaning as few as they find.

I'm glad I bought some years ago from Starline.

I have a bag of new Starline brass but I keep looking for used brass.   I'm not sure why I'm saving them but I am.

So the Outlaw arrived from the dealer a couple of weeks back with the 45ACP cylinder and no 45LC cylinder, called the dealer they don't have the 45LC cylinder and have no idea when they could get one so I sent it back.  >:(

I'm re-thinking this now and considering getting a couple of conversion cylinders for my Remmies instead. Just need to figure out how to get them up here (Canada) as neither Kirst or Howell or any of their resellers apparently ship to Canada.
