Uberti of Italy has been one of the leading manufacturers of Single Action Army revolver clones, and its 1873 Cattleman lineup encompasses many popular revolver calibers. In 2022, though, the company expanded to include one more popular caliber: 9mm Luger. Despite being a rimless cartridge, Uberti has configured three of its popular revolvers to accept these affordable, plentiful cartridges so shooters can get in more practice time at the range.
Along with the 1873 Cattleman, the company's El Patron is available with a 9mm Luger cylinder. The cylinders are machined with a rim inside the cylinder chambers that allow 9mm Luger cartridges to headspace on the case rim, so no moon clips are required for their use. The round are loaded individually, and spent cases are ejected in the traditional fashion through the use of the ejector rod.
In addition to the 9mm-only models of the 1873 Cattleman and the El Patron, both of which feature classically styled walnut grips, a case-hardened frame and blued steel barrels, there's also a dual-cylinder model available in the company's Cattleman lineup. This revolver will ship with a 9mm and a .357 Mag. cylinder, allowing the owner to quickly change between calibers with ease.
The Uberti 9mm revolver lineup pricing starts at $599 with the 1873 Cattleman. The upgraded El Patron will retail for $729, and the dual-cylinder Cattleman in 9mm and .357 Mag. will retail for $749. For more information, visit uberti-usa.com.
