    It's getting so I can't swing a dead cat around here and not hit a 22 revolver. If I'm not buying them for myself, my wife is getting them for me for my birthday. She said "You need a 'cowboy' gun.

    Uberti Stallion 22LR/22 Magnum. 5" barrel I guess it is. Maybe 5.5? Adjustable sights. A very nice looking and feeling gun.

    It has the name "Abraham Lincoln" rollmarked into the left side of the barrel. I doubt it was his. Might have been part of a "Civil War" commerative set or something.

    I haven't shot it yet, but probably will in the next week or so.

    Considering that Uberti got his start in 1959 making replicas in Italy I doubt it too.

    Nice looking .22 though. I like the .22/.22 Mag convertibles.

    I like it.

    I love .22's and prefer a revolver for .22 handguns. Semi-autos can be ammo finicky, revolvers shoot anything from CB's to Stingers and no have timing issues.
