I wanted an extra set to use when the mood struck me and my son was getting closer to the SASS competition age (12 years old) so I was going to need spares anyway so I bought these in the 7 1/2" barrel, along with a '66 Yellowboy (all in .44-40), when EMF had their version at a great price at their booth at the 2004 End Of Trail (Uberti actually manufactures almost all the replica handguns and rifles; uberti.com). I guess EMF didn't want to haul them back to office.
When I saw Robert Duvall using this baby in Open Range I was reminded to go get the bullet casting items and shell casings I needed to start using them. They don't slick up like the '73's but they are fun to shoot with every once in a while.
