Uberti coming

Post by 45shootr » Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:50 pm

Well, after weighing all the options I took the plunge for a Uberti 1874 "Long Range". Sure, I wanted a Shiloh, but in this economy I have to go with the less expensive model. I received an e-mail from another owner who really likes his. I'm sure it can outshoot me anyway. Can any other owners chime in?. Thanks. Chris

The Uberti Sharps is made by Pedersoli and is a good rifle. I have a Pedersoli Long Range Rifle and it is very accurate. It isn't a Shilo but it is a good rifle and I think you're going to like it.

Thanks for the info. It's been difficult finding Uberti owners of this rifle. So far 2 out of 2 have posted favorably. Chris

I own a Ubert "Down Under" and a Pedersoli "Hunter", both are well built and shoot moa at 100 yards with PP loads. You will not be disapointed!! I have the sight settings to 500 meters on the down under and it will ding the ram every time. BTW both are in 45-70.

I considered getting the Uberti Long Range that was stocked by my local Sportsman's Warehouse. As far as I could tell it was identical to the same thing in a Pedersoli. I have a Pedersoli Billy Dixon that has an exceptional barrel that is very accurate. The Uberti bore looked identical to my Pedersoli.

The Uberti Sharps rifles are totally built by Pedersoli. The only difference is the Uberti name stamped on the outside. Uberti can order specific cosmetic features, but most of their models are exactly the same as those from Pedersoli.

The only 'real' difference I have noticed is...so far, all of the Ubertis seem to be 45/70's.
