UBERTI FECIT"  Straight grip stock, full magazine, carbine buttplate.  The frame, both sideplates, the cartridge lifter, and the buttplate are all profusely and expertly engraved with about 90% coverage.  The left sideplate engraved with a very detailed round panel scene of a spread winged eagle with cactus and snake, the balance of the left side of the sideplate and the frame pretty much 100% engraved in a very intricate scroll & border engraving.  The right sideplate with a very detailed round panel presentation and hand engraved "A, Brown, from, O.

Uberti-66-car-Pasoti-Engraved-6-1.JPG

This is a Winchester 1866 carbine made by Uberti in Italy, expertly and beautifully engraved by master engraver Angelo Bee, master engraver for Browning firearms for many years.  18 3/4" long overall with a 9" rifled round barrel of .21 caliber.  Beautiful highly figured walnut buttstock and forearm with high gloss varnished finish.  Gold plated brass receiver, sideplates, buttplate and cleaning rod trapdoor.  High polish blue steel barrel, magazine, and barrel bands, and case colored lever, hammer, and trigger by Doug Turnbull of New York.   The carbine buttplate with the sliding trapdoor for a cleaning rod (cleaning rod not included). Carbine flip rear sight. The hammer spur finely checkered.  Beautiful craftsmanship and typical high Uberti quality.  Very early serial number 6 stamped into the lower tang to the rear of the lever lock.  No typical Uberti markings on the top of the barrel.  Straight grip stock, full magazine, carbine buttplate.  The left sideplate engraved with a very detailed round panel scene of a running buck whitetail deer, the balance of the left side of the sideplate and the frame pretty much 100% engraved in a very intricate scroll & border engraving.  The right sideplate with a very detailed round panel scene of a running big horn sheep, and again the balance of the sideplate and the frame pretty much 100% engraved in a very intricate scroll & border engraving.  The muzzle barrel band shows engraving on each side.  The forestock barrel band shows engraving on the top and sides above the screw.  The buttplate with engraving at the top, just above the trapdoor.  The lever with engraving on the bottom edge.  The metal is near perfect.  The wood does show some minor handling marks, with a minor ding in the middle of the left side of the buttsock.  You will see very few of these Uberti 1866 carbines with case colored parts, and when you do, they will usually be engraved by Angelo, with metal polish and finish by Turnbull.  We did about ten of these, with Angelo doing the engraving, and Turnbull doing the final polish, bluing, and case colors, back when I worked for IMA.  I was the one who did final assembly once everything was finished.  A truly magnificent piece!

Single-pinfire-cufflink-1.JPG

This is a 2mm pinfire Berloque cuff link pistol made by Franz Pfannl in Austria.  Designated as A5b, unmarked rabbit, in Bob Urso's book, The Tiniest Guns".   Made of three layers of German silver riveted together.  The left grip shows an antlered deer with flowers and borders.  The right side shows a rabbit which is partially obscured by the cuff link fitting.  Unlike many of these Berloque cuff links pistols that are vented out the top, bottom, or sides, this one is vented out the muzzle.  Shows signs of having been fired, but is in nice condition overall.

Uberti66Rifle294-1.JPG

This is a 47% scale Winchester Model 1866 octagon barrel rifle by Uberti in Italy.  20 3/8" long overall with a 11 7/16" .21 caliber rifled octagon barrel.  All steel parts are nicely blued and 99.9%.  The brass parts are all gold plated as is normal for the Uberti 66's.  The wood is highly figured French walnut with beautiful cross grain figure.  Serial # is stamped into the lower tang.  Full magazine, crescent buttplate with the trap door for a cleaning rod (rod not included).  Checkered hammer spur, the sides of the hammer polished and in the white.  The rear sight has the distance graduation markings.  Under the rear sight is the normal Uberti stamping.  The barrel is plugged at the breech as are all of the Uberti rifles.  The condition is mint new, and the miniature is still in the original plastic bag it was shipped in from Uberti.  Uberti 1866 octagon barrel rifles are scarce as they were probably less than 10% of production, most of the production being round barrel carbines.  Stock photos.  I have several of these in stock.  Your wood will look slightly different.

Weston-Third-Walker-A-Co-35-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale 1847 Colt Walker Dragoon revolver made by the legendary Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, Mexico back in the late 1940's to 1950's.  This is often called the 6" Walker by Weston collectors, as Weston made miniature Walkers in four different scales, this being the second to largest.  6 1/4"" long overall with a 3 7/16" part round part octagon barrel of about .16 caliber.  The piece is fully functional, and would fire given the proper percussion caps, powder, and lead bullets, but it sold strictly as a collectors piece.  The top barrel flat is marked "ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK CITY".  The left side of the barrel lug, the left side of the frame, and the bottom of the gripstrap are marked "A COMPANY No 35".  The bottom rear of the barrel, the bottom front of the frame, and the bottom front of the triggerguard stamped with the number "35".  The right side of the barrel lug marked "US" and "1847" in two lines.  Checkered hammer spur, the hammer has both half and full cock, and has the typical 4 clicks when cocked.  The cylinder with the typical round cylinder stop notches without approaches.  The piece is made of steel, which has been rust blued except for the triggerguard and blade front sight which are yellow brass, and the frame, hammer, loading lever, and loading rammer which are very nicely case colored.  The grips are one piece Rosewood.  The piece is 100% mechanically, and still shows about 95% of the original rust blue finish, though is is starting to turn purplish in areas, and does show edge wear, cylinder turn marks, and some minor handling scratches.  The brass is a very dark beautifully aged patina and shows no signs of ever having been cleaned.  Some might argue that this piece was actually made by Fred Thacker in El Paso, Texas, a valid argument, as both Weston and Thacker used some of the same craftsmen.
