ACCOKEEK, MD (January 19, 2016) – Known for its distinctive brass receiver and repeating action, the 1866 Yellowboy was the first true “cowboy” lever-action rifle to be widely accepted by those who made their life in the saddle. To celebrate the rich history of this iconic firearm of the American West, Uberti announces the release of the limited-edition 150th Anniversary Model of the fabled 1866 Yellowboy.
The original 1866 Yellowboy signified an improvement over the original Henry rifle with the addition of its side-loading gate and fore end. Uberti’s sesquicentennial model retains these improvements and tacks on a few more to further enhance this 150-year-old classic. This lavishly engraved limited edition features the “transitional” flat-sided receiver, which straddles the Model 1860 and the 1866, a characteristic found only in very early 1866 serial numbers.
Limited to a production of 350, Uberti’s 1866 Yellowboy Engraved Anniversary Model features the distinctive side-loading gate along the face of the unique flat receiver plate found in very early 1866 rifles. Each receiver is engraved with a fine pattern copied directly from the original found in the Uberti collection, and hand chased for a truly unique appearance. The dark, case-hardened lever further enhances the overall aesthetics of the model as it contrasts with the brass receiver.
The limited-edition model features a round, 20-inch barrel, which is encased with a satin walnut fore end and finished with a brass fore end cap. A brass carving-style buttplate wraps the A-Grade walnut buttstock to round out the rifle’s distinctive looks.
Chambered in .45 Colt with a 10+1 capacity, Uberti’s 1866 Yellowboy Flatside 150th Anniversary Model carries an MSRP of $1,778, weighs 7.55 pounds and has an overall length of 39 inches.
ACCOKEEK, MD (January 19, 2016) – Uberti’s acclaimed 1873 Cattleman SAA replica lineup, a longtime favorite among single-action shooters and collectors, now delivers the benefits of a modern transfer bar revolver through the addition of a retractable firing pin. The new Uberti Cattleman II Brass and Steel models with retractable firing pins avoid pin on primer issues while enabling the revolver to look 100 percent historically authentic from the outside.
Traditionally, cowboys have always carried their single-action revolver with the hammer resting on an empty chamber. The reason for this is that otherwise the fixed firing pin could be rested on a live primer, thus risking discharge if the hammer were to be struck or bumped. The new and innovative Uberti retractable firing pin floats free in its guide inside the hammer, thereby exerting no pressure towards a chambered round. Only when the trigger is pressed from a fully cocked position will the sear that engages the firing pin lock it in the forward position so as to ignite the cartridge primer. When the trigger is then released, the firing pin floats free again, exerting no forward pressure.
From the outside, this added safety device enables this line of historical replicas to look perfectly true to the original revolver design since no additional element like a hammer safety bar or transfer bar impinges on the clean lines of the hammer, firing pin or frame.
Available in .45 Colt, .44-40 WCF and .357 Magnum, the Uberti Cattleman II Brass with retractable firing pin features a brass trigger guard and backstrap with an MSRP of $549; the Cattleman II Steel with retractable firing pin has an MSRP of $559. Matched sets of Cattlemen II Steel in .45 Colt or .357 Magnum, are also available and have an MSRP of $1,159.Read More
Accokeek, MD (January 14, 2015) - Uberti Firearms today announced a partnership agreement with multiple World Champion mounted shooter Kenda Lenseigne to promote its extensive collection of single action revolvers and lever action rifles.
"This is a fantastic opportunity to elevate the Uberti name within the mounted shooting community," said Lenseigne. "Uberti is currently the most popular firearm manufacturer in the sport, but up until now they haven’t had a professional shooter represent the brand—I’m excited to be the first.”
Bringing Lenseigne on board represents a significant leap in the profile of the brand, a factor not lost on Tom Kaleta, Benelli USA’s VP of Marketing. “We’re known as the premier western replica firearms company because we earned it…the guns look the part and perform,” said Kaleta. “Kenda’s reputation is right for Uberti—she earned her way to the top and her prominence as a mounted shooter and single-action expert is the perfect fit for us.”
