Hi, the new Uberti 1860 Civilian just came in the door. A quick look over shows it to be a beauty in all respects. Fit, finish, and timing perfect. It couldn't be any better. The bluing is deep blue that appears to be 3" deep. Even the color case hardening of the frame is darker and deeper than any other previous Uberti I have purchased. Uberti must be now doing the faux Pietta method of color case hardening.
Tomorrow I will strip the revolver down, strip the preservation oil, and then do the mods described in my previous post. Photos will follow.
