About the Handgun:
This reproduction is patterned after the original Colt 1851 Navy percussion revolver. It features a brass backstrap and trigger guard.
About the Manufacturer:
In 1959, Aldo Uberti founded A. Uberti, S.r.l. in the village of Gardone Val Trompia in the Italian Alps and began making replicas of Civil War-era cap-and-ball revolvers. Over the years, as the experience and skill of his craftsmen grew, Uberti expanded into replicas of classic lever-action rifles, cowboy six-shooters, and big game rifles. Not only are the Uberti guns exacting replicas down to the finest detail, but with modern machinery and materials, they’re actually better than the originals.
About the Cartridge:
Developed by Smith & Wesson and introduced along with its Military & Police Model revolver in 1902, this was originally a military cartridge intended to replace the unsatisfactory .38 Long Colt then in use by the Army. Colt brought out its own version of the .38 Special in 1909, which differs from the original only in bullet shape, being a flat-point style. The .38 Special is considered one of the best-balanced, all-round handgun cartridges ever designed. It is also one of the most accurate and very widely used for match shooting.
