The rest of the metal on the Uberti is deeply blued with a smooth, even finish, including the barrel, trigger and trigger guard, and backstrap. Uberti is offering the Cattleman in the three barrel lengths that the original Colt SAA was offered in: 4 ¾ inches, 5 ½ inches, and 7 ½ inches. Mine was a 5½-inch version, known as the Artillery model in the Colt lineup, and is my favorite barrel length among the SAAs for its balance and looks.
Mechanically, the Cattleman works like any other SAA. The gun is loaded by partially cocking the hammer, which allows the cylinder to spin freely, and opening the loading gate, exposing the chambers. To remove the empties, do the same thing, and use the spring-loaded ejector under the barrel to push the brass free.
