Uberti 1873 SAA vs. 1875 Outlaw specific differences?

What are the biggest differences in the accuracy/reliability the 7.5 SAA and the Outlaw revolvers? My biggest reason for getting the SAA was the bigger grip and fit in my hand. Can anyone else share your experiences with these two revolvers? Obviously, the Colt SAA was much more historically successful in sales.

If your Uberti SAA and the Uberti Remington 1875 have their chamber dias adjusted to the respective rifling groove dia there shouldn't be much of a difference in the accuracy department.
Over time the SAA's grip screws will shoot loose ... which is easily corrected.
In my book both are quality clones. I feel the difference is more the shooter's preference regarding grip/hammer geometry than anything else.

My M1875 came with the post front sight, I had to have a higher one custom made to get on target with 250 grain bullets in 45 Colt. The "Colt" SAA owners I have talked to don't seem to have that problem.
