Uberti Stallion vs Cattleman

I'm thinking of getting the Stallion or Cattleman in Case Hardened, Brass, and 5 1/2" in 357/38

I've noticed the Cattleman comes in 357 and the Stallion comes in 38 spl. I believe the Stallion is slightly smaller than the Cattleman. If I get the 357 I can shoot 38 in it but if I get the 38 I can't shoot 357 in it. Is that correct?

I would like the 357 but I already have a Stallion in 22LR and would like it to match that. Any thoughts?

I already have a Rossi Mare's Leg in 357 but so far have only shot 38 in it.

Yes they are 2 different frames . One is "P" frame the other one is "P" jr frame , Which is 7/8 the size of a "P" . None of the frames are Case Hardened , they are colored to look like case hardened . You need to see if you Mare's leg will feed 38 special and 99% of them need a round nose bullets to feed . Here my pics of my "P" jrs , which are made by Uberti / Cimarron .



This is a factory race gun and is a factory short stroke gun .

I've only shot 38 spl in the Mare's Leg so I know its fine. And yes I do shoot RN. I didn't know that about the case hardened. Figures.

I have small hands so might as well go with the P jr. But I wonder if I'll ever regret getting a 357?

The only problems shooting thousands of 38 in 357 chamber is carbon and lead build up . You must clean and keep the chamber clean to shoot 357 mag again . After shooting a thousnd or so 38 in my gun before shooting 357 I take a 357 case and flare it out in my reloading die and try it in the chamber and you can use it as a gage and or scraper . If your smart take a couple 357 fired in your gun and set the fired 357 aside and use them as a gage later . I normally shoot all my pistol at 25 yards to test gun and loads , but the target frames where too heavy for me to move to move to 25 yds alone . This is a 3 1/2" barrel

Nice shootin'.

I'm wondering if I'll ever shoot 357 as I don't have a need for more power. I'll be shooting at paper for the most part. I have the same problem with an AR15 with an M261 bolt. Its a mil-spec rifle chambered for 5.56 NATO and a mil-spec .22LR bolt. The 22 clogs up the gas tube and will need major cleaning to shoot 5.56 again. One of the solutions for it is to put the correct bolt back in and shoot a couple 5.56 at the end of shooting 22 for the day. Cleaning is hafl the fun of shootin' to me especially with certain guns.

I'm having a problem finding a Uberti P or any of the others made by them and marketed under a differant name. Seems the only ones available are the Colt and Ruger.
