Pietta 62
« on: September 23, 2014, 03:48:25 PM »


Put this pic up on a few forums after I tru oiled the grips and polished the brass and got some favorable responses, so here it is.  I'm sure some of yas have already seen it over at the gulch.

Hi Dave,   You have that revolver looking really good.   I like the Pietta '62 Police models but I wish they were on a smaller frame like the originals.    The only thing I think Uberti has over Pietta is the fact they make the smaller frame revolvers.

I hear ya Mike.  I just wish Uberti would focus on quality control.  Every one i've ever owned, with the exception of the Cattleman, needed mechanical work  (i.e.  "dreaded short arbor").  Never had mech problems with Pietta.

I only have a couple Uberti made revolvers.   I can't tell much difference except in the grips.  Uberti has better finished wood.    I have redone the wood on most of my Piettas.   Both of my Uberti guns worked well right out of the box.   On the other hand they were both older guns that had not been loaded or fired.   I don't have experience with Uberti made guns of recent vintage.

My opinion of the Italian replicas is they are all kit guns of some sort.  Some need more work than others but they all need work to satisfy me.
