Beretta Stampede No. JEA1501 .45 LC

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Clean cowboy lines and real case coloring were the hallmarks of Beretta's Stampede. It arrived with cracked grips. This Italian made revolver was a close ringer to an early Colt. The trigger guard and grip shapes were outstanding. It was a few ounces lighter than the Ruger, and a bit better balanced.

The arrow points to the interfering shoulder of the receiver that prohibits easy ejection of spent rounds. This could have been an easy fix by Beretta if they had noticed it. We liked the contours of the bevels on the chambers. This is how it ought to be done. The Cabela's was identical. Ruger's were just rounded.

Right: Both grip panels were cracked through, which we thought was from careless assembly. The grips were damaged internally as well. Chunks were floating around inside.
