Uberti USA Presents the 1873 Hunter Revolver Series
January 2024, Accokeek, MD – Single-action revolver fans understand the fun of running their favorite Old West six-shooter on the range. Now Uberti is giving classic revolver fans a new excuse to strap on vintage-style iron with the release of its new 1873 Hunter Revolvers.
Chambered in .45 LC and .44 Magnum, the 1873 Hunter models are based on Uberti’s popular 1873 Cattleman single-action revolver series. The difference is that the 1873 Hunter Revolvers come with a frame-mounted Picatinny rail. This is ideal for SSA enthusiasts who wish to hunt medium- and large-size game with the proven .45 LC or .44 Magnum cartridges but are not comfortable doing so with the traditional iron sight configuration.
With the inclusion of the Picatinny rail, shooters can now add modern optics to this American heritage revolver and enjoy point-of-aim, point-of-impact performance at typical hunting distances. The rail is suitable for mounting either a long eye relief low-power handgun scope or a compact red dot optic. The red dot option is also the perfect choice for recreational shooters whose eyes struggle with open sights, making the 1873 Hunter Revolvers as suitable for a day at the range as a day in the hunting fields.
Both 1873 Hunter Revolvers come with a 7.5-inch blued barrel, fluteless cylinder, classical color case frame, and an elegant walnut grip. These guns feature the longer Uberti 1860-style grip to better accommodate the shooter’s hand while wearing gloves. Each boasts a six-round capacity and a comfortable MSRP of $799.
