Just bought a Uberti 1873 Cattleman Cody .45. Love the gun but it is a little stiff. I have been reading everywhere that I should get a "action tune-up" (replace some springs, polish, etc. to really improve the gun). Anyone have any recomendations on a professional gunsmith that specializes in the Uberti SA's and does this type of work?

But there are a lot of people out there who will try, and void your warranty.
If is tight would take a little Flitz polish on a pipe cleaner.
Put a spot of Flitz in each tight spot that you see.
Afterward work the action. The polish will smooth out the action.
This will work on the Taurus as well, if you take them apart, you’ll void your warranty. We would charge up wards to $$$$$ for doing this.
It’s a trade secret. Now you know.
When you’re done wash the receiver out with boiling water to remove the Flitz.
The hot water will evaporate before it has a chance to rust.
