I think you have your Uberti safeties reversed.
My 1975 vintage Cattleman has the little plunger activated hammer safety. It did not have the two position base pin safety .
The later ones did away with the hammer safety and went to the base pin safety.
Joe has it right...except for a few of the low-end models, Uberti long ago abandoned the hammer-block safety & D-cam hammer. It was long-about then that the 2-position pin appererd, the metals got better, the hand spring was changed to a coil, the sizing first matched the Colt SAA, and the fitting got real good.
You can thank Cimarron for that. They're the ones who took a 2nd Gen Colt to Italy and said "here, copy this"....which Uberti dern near did.
Mine is a mid 90's model EMF Hartford.
In 40,000 rds it's had a couple of spring changes and a .002 shim placed under the cylinder bushing....that's it.
But the Mitchel version?....dunno....I think I'd steer clear of it.
