Just Ordered 2 NIB Single Action Western Style Revolvers - Opinions & Thoughts Please
After a couple of weeks of online research and speaking with a few people who are involved with Cowboy Action Shooting, that I met at a local Gun Show, I made my choices, and just yesterday, I ordered two guns from Bud's Gun Shop in Lexington, KY.
1 x Uberti 1873 El Patron .357 Mag 5 1/2" Case Hardened/Blue
1 x TAYLOR 1873 Style SMOKE WAGON DELUXE 45 Colt/LC 4.75" Case Hardened/Blue
Taylor is no longer producing any of those revolvers, but if you search hard enough, you can still find a few. Taylor Guns are basically reworked, Fitted and Tuned Uberti Guns, with coil springs.
The Uberti El Patron Series is also a reworked, fitted & Tuned 1873 Model, with coil springs. The El Patron is true to the Colt Design, with the firing pin on the hammer. However, the Taylor uses a Transfer Bar system.
Everything I've read about these and have been told about them, puts them in a class far above all the other clones out there. Several people, especially the Cowboy Action Shoots say they out perform even the best Colts you can find.
I'll post some photos once I receive them.
I would love to hear from anyone who owns one or both of these models.
What are any of your thoughts, about these pieces, from anyone?
