Project Description

This is a 47% scale Colt Single Action Army revolver with 5 1/2″ barrel made by Uberti in Italy.  I would call this one of their “Prestige Editions”, although it is very similar to the U.S. Historical Society “Presidential Edition” Colt SAA.  These were the most elaborately engraved and decorated models Uberti ever produced.  5 1/8″ long overall with a 2 9/16″ rifled barrel of .21 caliber.   This piece is beautifully and extensively factory engraved with scroll & vine and several different border & fill patterns.  The frame, backstrap, triggerguard, barrel, and front sight are silver plated.  The ejector rod housing, ejector rod, cylinder, hammer, trigger, & screws are gold plated.  One piece smooth ivory grip showing some nice grain & just a little age patina.  Black powder frame with the round “Bullseye” ejector rod button, the early “Pinched Frame” topstrap, and the cylinder pin held in place by a screw.  The left front of the frame stamped with the patent dates in two lines.  The left rear of the triggerguard stamped with the “.45 CAL” markings.  Checkered hammer spur.  Early serial number 1154 stamped into the frame, triggerguard, & backstrap.  54 stamped into the loading gate hinge.  The standard Uberti markings stamped into the bottom of the barrel.  Complete with the original Uberti glass topped mahogany casing, the interior plush lined in a light blue fabric.  The lower front of the case with a bar coded inventory tag with the serial # “1154”, and “LEW0051”.  The revolver is in mint condition, the case has a small damaged area on the middle front of the lid.  A beautiful piece, and very rarely offered for sale!  From the personal miniature collection of famous firearms dealer Lew Horton.  Stock # LH-08.  Price:  $1,350.00.
