I sure wish they'd make one in 44 special. And I hope they make it a lot better than a make their standard 44 mag, By better I don't mean quality I mean the way the originals were and not those kind of funky looking receivers they have now.
I owned two Uberti models in the past. To me, they were very uncomfortable to shoot, the barrel/under lug -tube got hot really fast, and the follower for shells in the tube constantly got in my way. On both models the rear sight needed substantial tweaking to get it straight and tight on the elevation part. I don't have either one now - but I DO have a 1866 and an 1873 Repro, and them I like fine.
I wonder what kind of longevity issues a brass (bronze) receiver might see when using these full power rifle cartridges, especially with the toggle link bolt they have. BP is a lot lower pressure, and the original .44 rimmed ammo couldn't have even been 40gns of powder. Sounds cool but maybe not practical as originally engineered.

Found her NIB at a local gun shop. Made in 1986 my Miroku. What a beauty!
So after collecting for over 20 years I decided to unload a bunch of my non US military rifles and traded for the Browning and a SA M1A, also new issue.
Love learning about and shooting them both!
