Project Description

This is a 47% scale miniature Uberti Colt “Buntline” single action army revolver with the proper 12 inch barrel.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  Full nickel finish, except for the ladder sight adjustable elevator which is blued.   Highly figured one piece rosewood grip with an oil finish.  8 1/4″ long overall with a 5 5/8″ rifled barrel. Black powder frame with the round “bullseye” ejector rod button, the early and the cylinder pin held in place by a screw.  Unlike many Uberti Buntline Colt SAA revolvers which have the standard “pinched frame” topstrap, this one has the flat top frame with the folding ladder type elevation adjustable rear sight.  The ladder sight folds down into a mortised area in the top strap so only the blued elevator shows the ears of the sighting notch.  Only six of these were ever made in nickel finish, which I special ordered from Uberti back when they were still producing miniatures, about 12 – 15 years ago.  The triggerguard stamped 45 CAL on the left side just behind the trigger.  The frame stamped with the two patent dates on the left side.  Serial number 3183 stamped into the frame & trigger guard. 183 is stamped into the bottom of the backstrap.  83 is stamped into the loading gate hinge.  A. UBERTI ITALY is stamped into the bottom of the barrel.  Mint new condition.  A super rare Uberti miniature Colt SAA variation!  Price:  $1,000.00.
