STAMPEDE! Don't duck -- it's just a new gun!

Well, I have yet to learn my lesson .... attended another gunshow....wound up with another gun.
For a LONG time I have possessed a Uberti repro of the Winchester 1873 saddlering carbine in .44-40. Last January I acquired a Uberti repro of the Colt-Burgess 1883 carbine in .44-40. But I have no Colt SAA type gun in .44-40.
I have one in .45 Colt, which is a classic caliber for it, and I recently got a Uberti Peacemaker clone in .32-20 to match a Winchester 1892 I'd bought months ago.
At the gunshow today I found a Beretta "Stampede," a Colt SAA "clone" in .44-40 made by well, Beretta. Actually, I "think" it's made by Uberti (it does say Uberti on the barrel) but I think Uberti is now owned by Beretta. It has a nice color casehardening. While used it appears almost like new in box -- NO wear evident in bolt locks on cylinder, NO draglines in between bolt notches on cylinder.
It does not have the traditional firingpin, it has a transfer bar that when you pull the trigger, is moved up and transferes the hammer's momentum to a little spring-loaded firing pin in the rear of the frame.
The grip is a two-piece black plastic checkored grip with the triple trident Beretta Logo on top and a image of a buffalo on the bottom (both sides).
Also, the trigger is wider than the classic Colt trigger for the SAA, and the internal mechanism is somewhat altered (as one might imagine) for the transfer bar.
I can live with those differences I guess. The .32-20 and .45 also have some minor technical alterations from the Colt specs.
Oh, I could mention there is no "safety" position with this gun. SAA fans will know when you draw the hammer back the first position locks the hammer back maybe 1/8th of and inch and simply keeps the firing pin off the primer of a cartridge, an "iffy" ...."safety" at best. Well, this gun doesn't need it and doesn't have it as it has that transfer bar. However I have always believed the only TRUE "safety" with any gun is the gray matter God stuffed into our craniums.
The casehardening on this gun is colorful .... I note a number of blues and browns in it. Sunlight ought to bring out the true nature of it.
I can't wait to get it to the range! ! ! !

Nice catch, Tommy! I just really, really like SAA's. Have loads of fun with mine. Both of them are Cimarron's made by Uberti, and the quality is really quite good.

I'll bet dollars to donuts that your Beretta will give you lots of service and fun.

Enjoy!

Well that will make a nice companion to your rifle. You're gonna have fun with that. I personally think Uberti's revolvers a excellent.
