Our Assessment: This Uberti 1873 Cattleman is configured after the one used by Sylvester Stallone throughout the Expendable franchise in those hero moments like this one. With a short 3 1/2? barrel, ported for recoil reduction and a raised hammer spur with roller for fanning, this revolver is a fast-handling, fast-firing reboot of an old favorite, much like Stallone’s role in the franchise. This will make a great addition to any collection, but especially fans of The Expendables franchise and unique revolvers. Good luck in your bidding!
