Navy Arms Company imported Uberti Revolvers
« on: August 31, 2014, 12:38:33 am »
I have found a 5 1/2" barreled revolver that is in about 95% condition. Fired very little...maybe a dozen times. It is stamped, "Navy Arms Co. Ridgefield, NJ Made in Italy" on top of the barrel with "S.A. Cal. 45 LC" on the side, and "A. Uberti--Italy" on the bottom of the barrel. On the frame it is stamped, "Pat. Sept. 19, 1871 July 2, 72 Jan. 19, 75" It has the bullseye button on the ejector rod.  There are no stamps on the wooden grips.

What can ya'll tell me about this revolver?
Which model is this gun?
What is the reputation of this revolver?
What years did Navy Arms Co. important Uberti replicas?
In this condition, what would it be worth?

Thanks

It'll be a Uberti Cattleman.  Manufacture date will be a box with two letters in it.  Not sure exact time frame Navy Arms imported Ubertis; but it was from around 1959 through around 2009 ?  Value depends on condition and finish.  Steel BS/TG is worth more than brass; Charcoal blue is worth more than regular blue/black finish; etc.  Pictures would help.  

Ballpark rough estimate, a true 95% standard blue steel BS/TG could be worth around $300.  Brass BS/TG subtract $25.

The bulleye ejector insinuates that is probably or possibly a Blackpowder Framed revolver.  Cylinder pin retaining system is a screw in frame, not a spring bar across the frame.

Add a few more dollars.
