Anybody have any experience with these? Know anything about them or could point me in the right direction? I'm kinda interested, but I don't want to spend that kinda scratch on a piece of junk.

Uberti was recently bought by Beretta.

Uberti has always made some very nice replica's of the Colt Single Action, and the Winchester Lever rifles.

In the past 15 years or so, due to the booming Cowboy shooting sport, Uberti's quality has gotten better.

Most of the replica firearms are made by them, and marketed under both their own name or under the names of importers.

These are sold by Dixie Gun Works, Navy Arms, Cimmarron Arms, EMF, and others over the years.

Apparently Uberti will make slightly better or less finish guns for importers wanting either a top quality, or a lesser priced gun.

Usually guns sold under the Uberti name, or by Cimmarron or Navy Arms are the top quality.
Guns sold by EMF and often Dixie are "sometimes" slightly lesser quality in finish.
It requires comparing guns side by side to determine the slight difference.

While the Uberti guns aren't up to Colt or USFA in quality, they're very good, and make perfect shooters.

I think their Schofield remake may be my next handgun. Current Uberti's are head & shoulders above their earlier models, IMO.

I wouldn't go that far, my Uberti SAA is just as good a quality as my 1st gen and 2nd gen Colt SAAs, even to the point as having the front sight off center by just a touch

Don't take that to mean their quality is not good, mine is top notch, shot thousands of rounds out of it (replaced springs, hammer and hand, but that is to be expected after around 10,000 rounds or so)

Their other clones (Colt conversion, Schofield) are really good quality, the Schofield is better quality than the originals, though the tolerances are too tight to fire lots of Black Powder reliably, especially in the Schofield.

the new Colts can hardly be considered accurate reproductions, far too many changes.


As for Beretta buying them out, they did. The Beretta stampede guns are good, but have a transfer bar (that soem report having troubles with) they still make the original copies as Uberti did (I think even with Uberti stamps)

My Cimarron Arms 5 1/2" Model P is very well built and finished. It's also a blast to shoot.

ETA: Also, they are built on the original Colt 1872/1874 patents.

If I handle one, I may not be able to hand it back! The short barrel version (3"? 4"?) appeals to me something fierce!

That is what happened to me, Though I could not get their "Well's Fargo Special" it sold too fast I did get the 7" model though. It shoots very well and is tighter than any No 3 Smith I have ever owned or shot (though I ma sure age played soemwhat into that)


If you buy one in .45 colt you will not regret it. Get the newest one you can, and clean it well. (they are oiled pretty fierce from the factory)

Any opinions on the Millenium 4.75" 45LC for $260?
