The Uberti 1873 Catlleman Hombre .357 magnum is a faithful reproduction of the Colt 1873 single action army, one of the greatest selling revolvers of all time. The Uberti 1873 Cattleman Hombre has a classic look with brass trigger guard and backstrap with walnut grips. The steel frame, cylinder, and barrel are matte black finished for a non reflective almost old west worn look. The 1873 Uberti Cattleman Hombre .357 magnum with its 4.75" barrel points and balances as naturally as pointing your finger, which is why the original Colt was so favored by the sheriffs, ranchers, and outlaws of the old west. The Uberti 1873 Cattleman Hombre .357 magnum has improved safety over the first generation Colt SSA, it utilizes a retractable firing pin which increases safety of a fully loaded cylinder. This unique feature allows the Uberti 1873 to retain the original firing pin on the hammer without need of the newer transfer bar safety. Being a single action type revolver, the hammer must be brought back to the half cock position before the cylinder will spin freely and just need to open the loading gate to bring the correct chamber into position.
