    In the early to mid 1980s, Uberti produced a line of stainless steel percussion Colt revolvers that were imported to the US by Allen Firearms, Santa Fe, NM; Southwest Muzzleloaders Supply, Inc. Angleton, TX, Uberti USA, Navy Arms, and Western Arms Corp and possibly others. They are now also known to have been sold in Europe under the HEGE dealer name.

    Phil Spangenberger did an article about these stainless revolvers in the October 1983 issue of Guns and Ammo Magazine. According to the article, the models that were being imported were the 1851 Navy, 1860 Army, 1861 Navy, 1862 Pocket Navy, and 1862 Pocket police. Thanks to the late Dr. J.L. Davis of RPRCA, Claremore, OK, I have a 1984 price list for Uberti products that lists fourteen different models of Stainless Steel Colts produced by Uberti at that time. Subsequent price lists expanded the line to 16 models by adding 4 ½ inch barreled Pocket Navy and Pocket Police. The complete model list, known so far, is:

    1851 Navy, Oval Trigger guard Revolver, Cal. .36
    1851 Navy, Square back Trigger guard Revolver, Cal. .36 *
    1851 Navy, “Sheriff’s Model” Oval Trigger guard Revolver, Cal. .36
    1851 Navy, “Sheriff’s Model” Square back Trigger guard Revolver, Cal. .36 *
    1860 Army, Military, Cut For Stock, Cal. .44 *
    1860 Army, Military, With Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .44*
    1861 Navy, Military, Cut For Stock, Revolver, Cal. .36 *
    1861 Navy, Civilian, Revolver, Cal. .36
    1861 Navy, Military, With Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36*
    1861 Navy, Civilian, With Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36
    1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 4 ½
    1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 5 ½*
    1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 6 ½
    1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 4 ½*
    1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 5 ½*
    1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 6 ½
    (* - have identified location of examples of these models)

    The current total of known revolvers is 37; number 37 being found by on GunBroker by Shotgun Dave back in April. I have 5 of these revolvers now after picking two up from Dr Davis's RPRCA collection being sold by October Country. And know of thirty-two in the hands of other collectors or BP shooters. Five of the 32 are located overseas - One in England, one in Spain, one in Poland, and two in Switzerland.

    Anyone with information concerning Allen Firearms, Southwest Muzzleloaders Supply, Western Arms or any other Uberti Stainless Steel Colt style revolvers is requested to contact [email protected] I am seeking information as to models, manufacture dates, serial numbers, barrel markings, barrel lengths, trigger guards, and any other characteristics as well as any catalog, brochure and original packaging information.
