The Uberti 1873 Cattleman series replicates many popular variations of the Colt 1873 Single Action Army, arguably the best-selling pistol ever produced. In 1875, the bird's head grip was incorporated into a new full-sized Colt revolver and the new shooting iron immediately became popular with lawmen and gunslingers alike, including the infamous Billy the Kid. The New Model Cattleman features an improved cylinder-pin retainer that is spring-loaded for easier release and removal of the cylinder pin. This revolver has a case-hardened frame, a blade front sight with a rear groove, and wooden grips. Its grips, its metal, and its bore are all in very good condition.
