Love the full flutes....wish there had existed a half flute version but it's fantasy.
Actually Colt offered a 1860 with half-flutes, like on the S. A. A., but it was only offered on special order. I used to think the Pieta half flute 1860 was fantasy, but I obtained a book published circa 1947 with a photo of one.
I don't believe very many were made.
I know you can get a Pietta with half flutes but like you I thought it was fantasy. If you can scan that photo and article and post it we'd all appreciate it.
I have a pair of Uberti 1860 1/2 fluted build date 1969
