U.S.-Based Importer of A. Uberti Firearms Changes Name to Uberti USA
ACCOKEEK, Md. - Uberti, the importer of Italian-made A. Uberti firearms, announces the changing of its name to Uberti USA. The name change, effective immediately, is to clarify for American gun buyers the distinction between Uberti products sold by the company from other Uberti-made firearms marketed in the United States by competing brands.
"Only firearms sold by Uberti USA through its network of authorized retailers come with a class-leading 5-year warranty. Uberti-made products marketed by other replica firearm brands do not," said Tom DeBolt, General Manager of Benelli USA, the parent company for Uberti USA. "American gun buyers should know when they buy from Uberti USA, they are investing in a rich history of authentic, true-to-the-original firearms built by a company that revolutionized replica gun building and stands behind their work with a strong warranty."
Logos on gun boxes and promotional materials will also be changed to reflect the new Uberti USA name.
The thrill and romance of shooting Old West firearms might not be possible today were it not for famed gun maker Aldo Uberti. Most of the original firearms of the Old West are housed in museums and private collections, unobtainable and impractical to use. For this reason, Uberti began making replicas of Civil War-era cap-and-ball revolvers in 1959. He founded A. Uberti S.R.L. in the village of Gardone Val Trompia in the Italian Alps, slowly adding more iconic Old West firearms to his company's product offerings as the expertise of his craftsmen expanded.
Today, as in the beginning, Uberti USA firearms are exacting replicas down the finest detail. Many models represent improvements over the originals thanks to the advancements in materials and the use of modern machinery. Uberti USA offers a wealth of Old West replica firearms, including black powder and cartridge revolvers, as well as cartridge rifles. Uberti USA products set the standard by which competitive shooters, big-game hunters and collectors judge other vintage firearms.
