Stoeger ( Uberti ) Service



Log in to see fewer ads
Guys and gals, I had an appearance issue with a revolver cylinder being marked

slightly by an ill fitting cylinder stop. I called and asked about it, and they quickly

sent a call tag. I sent it off the next day, and eight days later I got the revolver

back, with a new cylinder, repaired and looking like new. I have never had

better customer service. Stoeger stands behind what they sell!

gr8guns , your posts about the Uberti is why I pulled the trigger , and ordered one .
I wish the firearm dealers were as fast . I ordered a Uberti Stallion last Friday and it still says it’s in processing.
I’ve used this dealer several times and never had any problem until now . Guess I’m being impatient but usually my orders have shipped out in three or less days . I usually have my gun in five or six days .

The grouping for a new barrel, looks good. You can tighten them up with the ammo

the revolver likes. The vertical can be adjusted by lowering the front sight.

From what I have read, sometimes the way you grip and follow through with

The trigger squeeze can make your impact point to the left.

Talk to Stoeger about the windage problem.

The Stallion I kept is pretty close to center at 60 feet With standard velocity, my

groups are in the left side on and close to the black.

Hopefully you get it the way you want it, I

Know you will figure it out.

Them little hosses are a hoot to shoot ! Is your trigger decent? I got a cowboy

a cowboy holster for mine, so I can carry my little Henry lever and play cowboy. I need a bandana and a cowboy hat.

He said his gun is shooting high. To lower the point of impact, he needs a higher front sight or a lower rear sight, FYI.

Seems to me that a lower front sight will raise the point of impact, no? Think about it. If you lower the front sight, you will drop the butt of the stock to get your sights back on target. Lower the butt and you raise your POI.

That group was shot with three different kinds of ammo , six o’clock hold about 2” under center . I can live with the six o’clock hold . I just hate to have to aim 4:30 to get on center .
Uberti recommends fileing the right side of the front sight to move poi to the right . After researching the problem , it seems to be common on Ubertis. From what I read , I’ve got one of the better ones .
Maybe it’s the pistol grip . It is a different shaped than my Single Six or my Bisley. Kirby

I had the issue on my heritage rr. ended up bending the front sight slightly and adding a red dot (nail polish) to the post. Works, but that was a cheap gun............

That is a recommended fix for windage, along with adjusting your grip...My Uberti

Stallion revolvers were cheap. 250 a throw for case hardened, all steel, highly

polished metal frames and brass handstraps. Not too shabby.

Well, I just went out and tried two more brands of ammo, your mileage may vary.

I tried some SK magazine, ( boy, that stuff is slimy and sticky ) and it shot about 3/4 an inch to the left at 12

yards. I then proceeded to shoot 7 six shot groups of 711B , and the impact

point is back in the center. I also tried different grip holds with some cheap

ammo to see what the grip hold would do, and if I hold it different than I

normally do, I can walk the point of impact all over the paper windage wise. I

guess that is why some people shoot better with adjustable sights. I do think

you will get something figured out.

It's all good. To adjust the windage, he may have a smith turn the barrel into the frame just a hair. This will essentially move the front blade to the left when looking through the sights.
