    Does this gun offend you?

    Was at my local gun shop waiting on a background check for my new Henry rifle and spotted this handgun in the case.

    Uberti 1873 Cattleman Ursus in 10mm with a ported barrel.

    Now, I like Uberti pistols, and I like 10mm, but I dislike porting. I think if it would have had a non-ported 5" or less barrel on it, nicer wood, I maybe would have brought it home. Was priced at $579.

    But in the present configuration, it just seemed wrong.

    What do you fellas think?

    You can call it your Space Cowboy Gun. It looks odd but I could get past it because it is a 10mm. It has a lot going for it in my eyes. A strong single action, so you can really load the 10mm to its potential

    Its not offensive, just out of place.
    Sort of like seeing jet engines on a WWI Sopwith Camel.

    Lop the ports off and and sweat a dime in a new groove . Problem solved . Then you spend another 10 years looking for a 10mm special ( 40 S&W ) and a 38-40 cylinder to go with the High Point and the 92' .

    Ever fire a ported pistol at a covered firing line?
    If you have, you would not be considering buying a ported pistol.

    Size/Prime a few cases when starting off with a progressive and put them aside. You can plug them back into the process when a bad/odd case screws up the priming station and continue loading.

    Covered firing lines are for yuppies...

    Pretty sure I said in my original post that I did not like porting. I have owned two ported pistols but have never fired them under a cover or at an indoor range. Sold them both since I just didn't like them.

    I don’t get it. It doesn’t look right and you’re basically shortening the barrel by 1.5” or so because all those holes are just going to bleed off the pressure.

    Not if you live where it rains almost every day.
    But I'm sure a little rain doesn't bother a tough guy like you but it might rust that ported barrel though.
    Don't cofuse me with somone who cares about how many ported guns you have owned.

    Just looks wrong/is wrong.

    A ported SAA ???, John Wayne is spinning at High Speed in his grave.
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    I'm not offended by guns, if they are comfortable and effective shooters for the purpose what's the problem?

    10mm in a S/A revolver would not be my first choice. Porting the barrel......C'MON, MANG.

    I might be too much of a purist. Uberti and Cimarron offer repros of the S&W #3 in 44 Russian and 45 Colt. I would really like a Schofield repro......if it came in 45 S&W. They are made in 44/40, which was an original chambering--so I would put up with one of those. WTH kind of "Replica" Colt S/A comes in 10mm, or "Replica" #3 comes in 45 Colt? Not having it/them.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.

    I’ve got it covered now with Uncle Joe’s permission my S&W Model 10 now self identifies as a gender neutral Shofield chambered in 44 Russian.

    I loved my 10mm before the socialist government forced me to give it up. I also consider a ported single action to be ugly, I also don't get any joy from a 10mm single action which can't do anything a good 45 Colt can't do. Like Winger Ed said. Regards Stephen

    Being a Uberti is a good thing.
    Being a 10mm single action revolver is a real good thing!
    Being a ported barrel sucks.

    I’ve got a 10/40 convertible Blackhawk. In 10mm the door is wide open to adventurous loading. No caveats about unsupported chambers or ramped barrels. The revolver cylinder has 6 of the most completely supported chambers possible. Also, the single action ejector completely ejects the relatively short 10mm brass. That small 10mm case keeps the powder near the primer in the lesser loadings (more so in 40) giving less powder position sensitivity for tight velocity spreads. I had Accurate Molds cut 40-172F for me. Basically a 10mm full wadcutter. It’s a great combination of boolit, cartridge and gun. 10mm in a single action is not “traditional” but it is a really good idea. Works GREAT!

    I should mention I have not experienced any boolit slip. Not having a crimp groove is not a problem with 10mm in a single action. The gun is heavy for the cartridge so recoil really doesn’t get to the level to pull the boolits. Even if you could find a loading that did let the boolits creep, they couldn’t crawl out the front of the cylinder bc it’s just too far.

    Ported barrel...deal breaker for me.

    At least it doesn't have a red dot and a flashlight hung on it.
