Ruger Blackhawk next to a Uberti 1873 S.A.A.

All Y’all gonna have to suck it up and work with me through learning my camera – yes a real camera not a cellphone camera – I had said awhile back that I was going to start using it and unless I simply don’t have it with me I’ve made up my mind it’s gonna be done with a real camera – this ought to be fun . . .

In my Blackhawk post I said there is some difference’s in profiles between the Ruger and what everyone thinks of as a “cowboy” gun but you don’t notice it unless they are side by side – Well here we go – Uberti on top – Ruger on the bottom . . .

The Ruger has a more “squared off” look to it –

Front of the frames and sight profiles . . .

Hammer profile differences . . .

The trigger guard differences – and the rear of the frames – not really eye catching but there are differences . . .

Almost the same weight . . .

The Ruger with the 38/357 cylinder . . .

The Uberti is in 32-20 . . .

The Ruger has an almost service revolver look to it when it’s next to the Uberti – The Uberti has an almost art deco look to it when it’s next to the Ruger – Kinda neat if you think about it – by themselves you’re like – Ok, it’s a cowboy gun . . . But when you put them up next to one another they are different – and neither one comes off as better or worse but the certainly are “different” from one another . . .

And they are both Great Shooters – the Ruger does a great job with recoil – points good . . .

The Uberti is a real sweetheart in 32-20 – the cowboy action loads that are out there in 32-20 are light loads because there are some real old guns out there that are still being shot today – and they are still being made and sold today – Classic Firearms has them and there are always listings for 32-20’s on GUN BROKER – All I can say is “Cowboy Up!”

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
