No one dreams of the Old West without conjuring up images of six-shooters, lever-action rifles, and the celebrated buffalo guns that could shoot a mile. Using superior quality forged steel, state-of-the-art technology and high precision machine tools, combined with the centuries-old skills of polishers, engravers and stockers, A. Uberti is able to create historical firearms with the same loving care with which the originals were crafted all those centuries ago. In 1959, Aldo Uberti founded A. Uberti, S.r.l. in the village of Gardone Val Trompia in the Italian Alps and began making replicas of Civil War-era cap-and-ball revolvers. Over the years, as the experience and skill of his craftsmen grew, Uberti expanded into replicas of classic lever-action rifles, cowboy six-shooters, and big game rifles.
