5.5" blue, took to range about 6 times, the ejector rod handle broke off, lucky to see it fall and able to find it in the grass

Well that sucks! But Beretta will make it good, I'm sure.

I'm sure they will, There's one screw holding on the ejector rod tube to the bbl and I was thinking if I could get that screw out with no problem, I'll ask Beretta to just send me a new ejector rod latch (maybe it's part of the ejector rod) to save shipping and hassle.  Bad news is even with a Dillon hollow ground gunsmithing screwdriver set, the screw is in there so tight it's started to strip.  So I'll be sending the whole gun back for what is probably a $4 part.

Update, after finding out it has to go overnight via Fed Ex or UPS at about $25+, I called Beretta this morning and after being on hold for 20 minutes talked to a human.  Beretta's going to send me a new ejector rod latch and the screw I boogered up!  God bless 'em!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't these guns made by someone other than Beretta? Uberti perhaps?

Yeah, Uberti per URL

Nice guns, when they're not broke!  I got mine at a year end inventory clearance sale at cost $300 just after Christmas 2003.  Mines in .357.  I have a SAA 1994 vintage Colt in 45LC as well.  The Stampedes have a firing pin transfer  bar safety so you can load 6 rds in them and the trigger is a lot wider, easier on the finger.

Kudo's to Beretta.  The ejector rod assembly had a list price of $20 and the ejector shroud screw $2.
Hope the new ejector rod handle doesn't break again.

I thought I read somewhere that Beretta owns Uberti now

Yes, they do.

It's not uncommon to see that part break.

these stampedes are NOT made by uberti. they are manufactured on beretta machinery. this is a common myth because beretta happens to own uberti. Funny thing is, beretta owns almost every gun company in italy aside from tanfoglio and SAB I believe.



These revolvers were built on CNC beretta machinery. NOT uberti.

What defines Uberti's machinery as being different if they in fact ARE owned by Beretta? Less quality of machines, perhaps? What?
