World and National Cowboy Mounted Shooting (CMS) champion and CMSA Hall of Famer Kenda Lenseigne has partnered with Uberti to design a custom-grade competition single-action revolver from the ground up. The partnership has resulted in the Uberti Short Stroke CMS Kenda Lenseigne (KL) Pro, CMS Pro and SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) Pro revolver family, which are new for 2016. Bianchi Cup fans might remember Kenda for winning the Colt Celebrity Pro-Am four consecutive times.
“In the world of professional competitive CMS and SASS shooting, fractions of a second are often what separates the winner from the also-rans. And when speed is as important as accuracy in a race-gun platform, the world's top CMS and SASS shooters look for every advantage they can get,” Lenseigne said. “For this reason, the new Uberti Short Stroke CMS and SASS Pro family feature a short-stroke action, meaning that hammer travel and hammer-travel time are reduced by 16 percent over conventional revolvers. Also key for this family of revolvers is the custom-grade mainspring that makes cocking the hammer butter smooth and gives an ultra-crisp feel to the trigger.”

Chambered in the classic .45 Colt and sporting a 3.5” barrel, the Short Stroke CMS KL Pro revolver also features Kenda's signature as well as a completely new grip, redesigned by the champion herself and bearing her carved logo in the wood panels. The Short Stroke CMS Pro is distinguished by deeply checkered grips in the traditional 1873 Single Action style. The SASS Pro features traditional grips and is available in 4.75” and 5.5” barrel configurations, as well as offering the chambering option of.45 Colt or .357 Magnum. The Uberti CMS Pro, CMS KL Pro and SASS Pro are all equipped with a low-profile, extra-wide hammer with aggressive checkering, as well as wide rear channel (EasyView) sights. This hammer enables quick target acquisition as well as a constant view of the target.

Practice makes perfect, but it doesn't have to make a dent in the bank account. The new Uberti 12-Shot .22 LR Trainer is fitted with a custom-grade mainspring and sports the same authentic look and feel of the CMS Pro without the short-stroke feature. Its 12-shot cylinder means less money spent on practicing and less time reloading.

“When I compete at such high levels, I have to have total confidence in my equipment,” Lenseigne said. “Uberti has given me this confidence and I look forward to sharing with U.S. shooters—whether they are competitors or enthusiasts—this line I helped design.”
