I really like the color. And the grips. And the barrel length. And. . . .

...from Uberti. This one was imported by Traditions from Pietta.

I think I am going to chrony the two pistols with the same load and see what happens.

Bet she'll throw that .44 more like a carbine than a revolver.

I think you are right. We shall see.

SWEET, BUT, did you buy that from Jack Nicholson? Looks like the pistol the Joker used to shoot down the bat Plane :D seriously though nice piece! So you have to remove the cylinder and use a loading stand, right?

that's a great score Doc ! I have the 5 1/2" model by Uberti...Now you need a loading stand and a few extra cylinders...Mine shoots .45 cal R.E.A.L. slugs
very well. Have Fun! and give us an update:D

I've got the shorter barreled version...and although I've never shot it- it seems ok.

Now, where to get a stock for it? :p

Andy,

As far as a stock is concerned, I have a cat that goes shooting with me. I'll just rest it on his shoulder. :D

Scrounger,

First of all, nice to read your handle on the forum. I have that Uberti too and I like it. This is why I want to compare ballistics on the two pistols.

303,

Who do you think sold Nicholson his pistol?! :D :D

But seriously, I load everything with a press. I reduces the stress on the frame or arbor.

Hawg,

Hey! Quit pickin on me. I am a defenseless old man. ;)

Thanks y'all.

Man buys a gun (that's right, a GUN) with a barrel longer than, well, never mind. And then claims to be defenseless.

Never heard of such a thing.

Nobody posted " 'Scuse me while i whip this out?".

Nice revolver!

Congrats on your new baby Doc! It's a nice looking shootin' iron . . . did you buy that for pocket carry? :D There's one thing about it . . you should shoot some pretty good scores . . . after all, the end of that barrel will be closer to the target than most of your pistols. Enjoy and let us know how she shoots! :)

.... Did I tell you this pistol is NIB?

Hawg and Mykeal,

I am surprised at you two.

Post a photo of a PISTOL with a barrel longer than nine inches and everyone's mind goes to parade rest.

Doc, you should never be surprised at me. I on the other hand am surprised at Mykeal.:D

I am really slipping.

First the bad gouge on Deer Creek who appear to be doing splendidly in direct contradiction to my report.....and now this!

I initially answered the question about caliber with the response; ".44"

Wrong!

It is .45

Sorry Vermont.

It is .45

so what size ball would you load that pistol with?

and do the loading gate and ejector work?

and great find, Doc!

Doc Hoy
January 31, 2012, 02:31 AM
.457s

do the loading gate and ejector work?

The loading gate does. The ejector functions but it has no job on a C&B.

absolutely.

but if it were converted...

any plans to convert that thing to cartridge shooter, Doc?

I don't stink so.

My approach toward cap and ball revolvers is to try to accumulate every one I see.

If I were to include conversions and cartridge revolvers, I would be in a lot of trouble.
