    I have one from the early 70s - I believe mine is a "super bearcat"? Can't remember as it's been a while since I have shot it. To answer your question, they are smaller than the single six. My hands are not huge so for me it works just fine - a...

    9.3X62AL - I had to smile when i read your description of the "safety cylinder pin" on the Uberti. When I got my 7 1/2" Uberti Cattleman in 45 Colt, I loaded up some 454-190 over 6 gr of RedDot. I had a 50 yard range in back the house we moved...

    Der Gebirgsjager - thanks - that is a big help! I appreciate your response. I't's a big help! I must admit that I also like my 45 Colt - probably for many reasons - historic cartridge and my Uberit 7 1/2" Cattleman shoots far better than I. I...

    I'm looking for some input from anyone who has a SAA Cattleman (Uberti) chambered in 32-20. Long story short, I'm making some changes in some of the handgunsI have - weeding out those I don't use, etc. I've always wanted a 32-20 and after looking...

    You might go to flea bay and put in a search for "haversack" as well. I don't do Civil War re-enacting any more but I kept my tarred haversack just to tote things in like you're talking about. Just a thought . . . .

    Read the label and see what it's made of - if it's 100% natural - i.e. linen or cotton - no reason it won't work. Materials are made and treated with "sizing" - that's why it looks so flat and neat on the bolt. You need to wash it to remove the...
