Uberti Cattleman 1873 BACS LEP AIR

  • It looks quite tiny in relation to your hand. Is it a firearm are CO2 powered?


    It doesn't seem to be available here in Germany.


    However, it's an amazing gun, congrats to your new "toy".


    Maybe it's a good contribution to our "Neue Schätzchen" Thread :D

  • t is a modified real firearm for BACS (compressed air) cartridges. They stopped being manufactured in the first years of this century.Thank you very much mate

    Wem gehört diese Schweinestall?

  • Guess it's similar to the stuff we call LEP (Luft Energie Patrone) Guns here. In the past they we're modified firearms, however, thanks to German legislation, it's no longer legal here.

  • It has just about 3 joule, pumping the cartridges is a fuckin' pain in the arse and it looks like it has been build 150 years ago...nobody ever needs such a thing.... ;)

    ...but everybody would love to have it :n1:


    Hey @Birdman, better upload your pictures directly, not via proxy. That will keep them here "forever".
    Anyway, thanks for sharing :respect:

    this is not needed; this is loved ;-)

  • Next week I will do a 10 meter shooting test. I will share the accuracy photos with you. Now I have seen that the mechanism is softer than in the Cuno Melcher

  • The reason for this is the drop guard, which must be moved along with it at the ME. The Uberti has the original Colt lock mechanism without any drop guard, only a safety rest before set down the hammer. (see the hammer pic)

  • I was surprised that the first "click" (first position of the hammer), is the safety position. I didn't know that. I don't know if that was the case in the nineteenth century or just today.

  • The safety catch already existed on the previous 1872 model (open top), otherwise you could never have loaded 6 cartridges without danger. The method of placing the hammer between the chambers, as it was usual with cap on ball revolvers, also works with the SAA, but it is considered very unsafe. Especially with the rimfire models.


    But your SAA is a replica of one built after 1896. From this year on the cylinder axle was no longer fixed on by screw, but got the spring button in the front of the frame.

  • I am very pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of my Uberti Cattleman 1843. It shoots a little below, but the grouping is very good. Much better than my Cuno Melcher. I forgot to take a picture of the target :-(

  • Don't worry.


    It's obviously something with a Hole, or even some more Holes.


    We can imagine that.
