How good are Uberti revolvers?
They have been outstanding. I gave them all action jobs when they were new (15 years ago) and they have been reliable, accurate revolvers. I’ve had to replace a trigger/bolt spring a time or two but that’s so simple than a Democrat could do it. Some Uberti models come with an action job.

Does the Uberti el patron have retractable firing pin?
My el patron has the retractable firing pin. I still just load five unless I know that I am plinking or target shooting the entire cylinder full at targets. The retractable pin is working just fine, although I have only fired a few hundred rounds downrange. I really like the el patron.

The cylinder pin retainer… there is a good reason they changed the design. It is possible for the recoil to loosen the screw and it can even fall out. You can still make it go bang without the screw, but it would be far from reliable. This is not really a big deal for a range-only type gun.
