Project Description

This is a 47% scale miniature Colt 1873 Single Action Army “Sheriff’s Model” revolver with 3″ barrel.  Also known as the “Peacemaker” and the “Frontier six Shooter”.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  4″ long overall with a 1 3/8″ .21 caliber rifled barrel.  Made by Uberti in Italy.  One piece highly figured rosewood grip with a beautiful satin oil finish.  The caliber marking 45 CAL is stamped on the left rear side of the triggerguard.  Two patent dates stamped on the left front of the frame.  “A. UBERTI – ITALY” stamped into the bottom of the barrel.  The  serial number 1852 is stamped into the bottom of the frame & triggerguard.  852 is stamped into the bottom of the backstrap.  52 is stamped into the loading gate hinge.  Beautiful full nickel finish.  Checkered hammer spur.  Blade type front sight.  Black powder frame with no ejector rod or housing, and a screw retaining the cylinder pin.  What sets this piece apart from most others is the rare fire blue screws.  It may not show in my photos, but the screws are a vibrant iridescent “blue” blue, not the normal black blue usually seen.  I have seen very few Uberti nickel finished revolvers with fire blue screws, I’d say way less than 1% of the few nickel plated revolvers ever made.  Beautiful mint new condition.  I have not had one of these in nickel with fire blue screws in many years!  Sheriff’s models are scarce, nickel ones even more so, & nickel with fire blue screws are the rarest!  Stock # TP-11.  Price:  $775.00.
