Those things are scarce as hen's teeth. Really neat piece. Uberti still makes the carbine revolver and fairly priced too. Bet it is fun to shoot - for sure. I think they still make them but only in 45c with an 18" barrel. They are not with the stock detachable. Got to be something with the GCA'68 I'll bet.
Thanks. It's fun to carry around and plink with. Wish I had a horse. That would complete the image
One thing I learned with the .44 years ago...You shouldn't fire it without hearing protection. I unwittingly took a rifle firing stance and squeezed the trigger. Imagine holding a .44 revolver close to your head and firing it. Not good. Thankfully, they were only .44 Specials and not magnums. Shook my fillings loose and it was a week before my eardrum was back to normal.
Ah, I was young and dumb. Now I'm not young anymore.
I had one in the late 80's and had to sell it. Accuracy was pretty good, but every now and then I would get peppered in the face with lead shavings and burning powder. I liked shooting it as a revolver better anyways. Been on the lookout for a few years for another one but haven't run across one yet. I don't think they ever made one in .45, but I did see a fella that had a complete set with the carbine, a 4-3/4" revolver and a .22 derringer. He told me they only made the Derringer for a short time and not many made. I don't know if that's true or not though. You have a nice looking shooter there.
I just bought the same gun in .45 colt tonight from another forum. I'm pretty psyched cause it's the caliber I always wanted on the buntline. Now I either sell the .357, or start scouting for the .44 mag to complete the trio.
