About the Handgun:
This reproduction is patterned after the original Colt 1873 Single Action Army, Civilian model revolver.
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:
This cartridge was adopted by the US Army in 1873 for the legendary Colt Single Action Army 'Peacemaker' revolver. This is yet another cartridge that was originally a black-powder design. This cartridge is still very popular today, used in many derringers and cowboy action revolvers.
