z Sold ~ What is it? Not a 61 Navy Not a 60 Army.

RJT#3209 -


A Rare Navy Arms made by Uberti. Yea It looks like a 1861 Navy at first glance, but it is a .44 Caliber, with brass back strap and trigger guard. It has the sleek barrel lines of 61 Navy, but the bore is .44. On top of that the barrel only measures 6 1/2 inches, not 7 1/2 like 61 Navy and not 8 inches like a 60 Army.  Is this a rare prototype?   It was made by Uberti to the highest standards.  This revolver was likely made in 1970.

The revolver appears unfired (but I cannot be certain) it does show turn marks on cylinder.  Case colors are dark and vivid.  Bluing is almost black blue.  Revolver shows some handling and storage marks.
The only blemish is what looks like something spattered on it removing the blue in a few spots.
I have looked this gun over very carefully and I am certain it was manufacture in this unusual model and in all my year I have not seen another like it..

It is fully functional and mechanically perfect. Far better than most replicas. The  marking I find are Italian proof marks and under the barrel the words "black powder only". On top of the barrel "NAVY ARMS RIDGEFIELD N. J. MADE IN ITALY"
Serial No. A14900

It has ivory colored grips which I am certain were after market. The hammer is case colored and all the screws are blued. An absolutely beautiful gun and it must be very rare as I can find no information on it.
