    Taylor, and Cimmaron are two of the big names that are actually manufactured in Italy by Uberti.
    The other big Italian manufacturer of SAA's is Pietta. They are also good, solid guns.

    I speak from experience, two Uberti's and one Pietta. The Uberti's are a 4.75" 357 magnum, and a beautiful 5.5" 45 Colt that is a deep rich blue with color case hardened frame. Absolutely gorgeous.
    My Pietta is a plain blue 7.5" in 45 Colt. About as Old School as one can get.

    Here's a stock photo of the Ubertis I have http://www.uberti-usa.com/1873-singl...eman-revolvers
    Uberti makes rifles, too.

    Here is Pietta's website F.A.P. di PIETTA Giuseppe & C. S.n.c. - Breachloadinguns - SAA 1873

    Both Uberti and Pietta guns are made to Colt specifications, which means SAAMI standard ammo only. No "hot" loads. If you want hot, get a Ruger. If you want original, get one of the Colt clones.
    I love Rugers, I've got a number of their SA's in various calibers, but in my eye laying a Ruger next to a Uberti is like parking a Mack truck next to a Ferrari.

    As far as belts, my daily wear belts are what most would consider a "gun belt". Handmade by Hawthorne Leather in South Carolina, they are very thick and heavy - about 1/8" thick. They cost about $40 each, and even though I have had them last over 15 years, I buy one each October when he comes to the craft fair at the Okefenokee Swamp Festival in Folkston, Georgia. They take about two weeks of wear before they will loosen up enough to easily circle around my waist.
    At the moment, I've got 4 good ones and one that has finally been downgraded to "wrenching on trucks" use.

    EDITED TO ADD: I just went and measured the last Hawthorne belt I bought - it is more than 3/16" and bumping a full 1/4" thick. It is NOT a "store" belt.
    Well I have a ruger vaquero that covers my need for a SAA. But I find an increasing attraction to the old Remington wheelguns and would like to pick up replicas of the Remington model 1858 new army and the Remington model 1875 and was wondering about the Uberti brand since I have no experience with them. As far as loads aint gonna be shooting any hot stuff anyway.
    Thanks RPD

    Update regarding the pythons, I had heard about the sideplates being a little loose causing those issues. This video is all the info I really have right now.
    I do know my piece arrived at Colt from the shipper but that is it, no info otherwise from colt themselves. So hopefully I will be updated by them. I really think that the assemblers must not have tightened the sideplates to the correct rating if what colt says is true or they are using it as a excuse potentially cause something went wrong on some guns machining wise.

    I read about the side plate issue somewhere, so it’s not just Colt.
    Do you subscribe to American Handgunner magazine? If you are a serious hand gunner you might find it interesting. Unlike Guns and Ammo, which is ALL new plastic fantastic tacticool crap, AH is well balanced between new and old.
    Their sister mag, Guns, is the same blend of new and classic.

    $30,000 for a trained guard dog, or adoption fee for a animal shelter bull Dog?
    Hmmmm, let me think about that.

    OK, I’ve thought about it, and as a life long Po’ Boy I’ll take the rescue pit bull.

    I worked several of them. You’d better have a lot of time and energy to spare if you want that breed.

    $30 LARGE for a mutt!?!?!? Foiled again!

    Seriously, there are adoption programs for retired police and military dogs!
