Remingtons / Re: Spanish Remington
« Last post by Captainkirk on April 17, 2019, 01:31:39 PM »
If the EN Santa Barbara is in 95% condition with no ill fixes to it I'd pay $400. The ordanance grade steel is the catcher combined with the precision machining and extra smooth bores.  I like the fact the "bolt" can't peen the cylinder......like any cartridge revolver that fires smokeless powder …...unlike the Italian soft cylindered revolvers.

Good info, I am in the process of acquiring a SB.

Santa Barbara was not an Italian maker, but a Spanish one. Their date codes were different.
Can you post any picture of the markings ?

Thanks for the response, Ringo!
Unfortunately, I don't have any photos yet (or the gun, for that matter). As soon as I get it I'll post up some pix.
Yes, I was aware the SBs were made in Spain, but didn't realize onlt the Italians used the typical date codes we are all used to.

Remingtons / Santa Barbara

OK, so I couldn't resist. I spied a Santa Barbara at the LGS which was (I thought) underpriced, though obviously used. I was able to talk the store clerk down even more than the price listed and put some money down on it.
While looking it over, I noticed there was no date code anywhere I could see. Is this normal for the SB guns?

Cased Sets / Experts weigh in?
« Last post by Captainkirk on March 08, 2019, 12:54:39 PM »
My buddy called last night. He just won an auction on two guns...an ASP 1860 Army and Navy Arms 1851 Navy. The Army is just what you would expect it to be for a San Paolo; DGG barrel marking, etc. The Navy, however...different story.
It's Uberti, yes. It's also stamped "NAVY ARMS CO" in big block letters both on the left side of the frame (where you would normally see "Colt's Patent") and also on the top barrel flat. OK; not so unusual. But what REALLY stands out is:

1) the cylinder is smooth, non-roll engraved

2) On the bottom barrel flat, under the loading lever, it is stamped "Made In Italy" with the preceding engraved "G.U." indicating this is clearly a Gregorelli & Uberti gun. Date code is XVII (1961).

3) This gun came in a cased set lined in red velvet with a powder flask and bullet mould. He did not provide me with a serial number, but I'm thinking he scored BIG TIME on this one, paying no more than some are asking for used brassers. What do you experts think?

Yes, fairly typical for that style.
