60 Army Shoulder Stock

Yesterday I received a 60 Army shoulder stock that I recently purchased new. The Manufacturer was unknown to me a time of purchase. My understanding from various posts on the net is that these stocks cannot be mixed an matched between the manufacturers of Uberti and Pietta.
Here is the stock that I picked up (It is an EMF Stock made by Pietta according to the box):




I happen to own a Uberti 1860 Army (date code CL) and a Pietta 1860/51 hybrid fantasy (date code AT), so I figured that I could not lose - the stock should fit one or the other. Much to my surprise the stock fits both!

The Uberti


The Pietta

I have a 51 grip frame on my 60 so my 51 stock fits both of mine as well.

Well, that is a better price than the DGW price of $295.

I want one but it is on the lowest tier of my list.

Looks great!

Again, since it fits a Uberti and a Pietta (with the "tail") I see no big difference in the fit. My contention all along is that the Pietta has a bit of a tail but has more of a curve to the trigger guard. If one peruses a DGW catalog, when comparing Uberti and Pietta, between various year models, the Pietta difference disappears. I also think that when Val Forgett brought an 1851 "parts" gun to Italy in the 1950's to replicate a shooter, much discussion was made insofar as having the replica have many different lines so the replicas could not be faked on the original 1800's pistol market.

I also think that when it comes to 1860's, Piettas have less of a tail issue than with the 51's

My personal experience is that the shoulder stocks are not interchangeable between brands. I had a Pietta 1860, and I bought a shoulder stock on ebay that turned out to be made by Uberti. It did not fit. (The curve of the backstrap was slightly different.) I sold the Pietta, and bought an Uberti 1860. The shoulder stock fit fine.

The date of manufacture of the items might make a difference, since I believe all the Italian companies have been steadily improving their faithfulness to the originals as time goes by. I would be hesitant to buy a stock (of a different brand) without trying it on the gun first.

All I know is I got lucky, perhaps it is because I bought the stock new - who knows?

In the past l I have had a non-Colt design shoulder stock that attached via a longer hammer screw and the hook under the grip. It fit both my Pietta 1851 and 1858 New Model Army Buffalo/Bison.

I had heard they would fit the 58 as well the grip angle is very similar.
