Broken springs on single actions (notably the trigger/bolt spring) are not limited to Uberti, and in fact Uberti is not as bad as others in that department. While the original guns also experienced spring breakage, a lot of the problem is due to the poor quality of modern flat springs; spring makers seem to have forgotten how to make those springs, plus making them as was done in the past would be far too expensive in today's market.

But Ruger had the right idea; he wanted to make practical guns and while he liked the classic look, it took second place to making his guns usable and at moderate cost.
