Hi Dave, sorry you missed out. Pietta is pretty good at answering questions on product availability. Suggest you email them and learn if Pietta intends on producing the Paterson again.

Very early in my marriage, my wife told me that timing is everything.  ;) ;) ;)

Regards,
Richard

I think I'll do that Richard.

And your wife is absolutely correct!

You were right Richard, Pietta is very good at responding to email!

I got a response from them today. Valentina says, they are assembling Patersons now, and they will be available at the end of January! I guess we'll see!!

Hi Dave, thanks for the info. The Paterson's have a more complex lock-work compared to the later Colts. Learning that Pietta will continue to manufacturer the Paterson is good news for Pietta Paterson revolvers.  Maybe I will be able to get my back-ordered Paterson cylinder soon?

Regards,
Richard

Hi Dave, I just heard that my Pietta Paterson extra cylinder has come in. It has been months waiting, but suggests that we will soon see the Pietta Paterson on dealer's shelves. Keep your money dry.

Richard

Hi Dave, I sent the following email to Pietta:

<<When will you have the Pietta Paterson available for sale in the USA again?>>

Pietta replied:

<<They will be available in few weeks, please contact Taylor's and EMF>>

I emailed Taylor Firearms to confirm if this is true and what will be the price for the Pietta Paterson.

Regards,
Richard

Holy moly! That's good news if it comes to fruition. I may still get a Paterson yet!

Hi Dave, I got the following email reply from Taylor Firearms:

<<We do not sell the Patterson model any longer as we cannot warranty them. Thank you.>>

Maybe EMF will be the only USA distributor for the Pietta Paterson, if even that?

Regards,
Richard

Well that's disheartening Richard. Why would Pietta even bother to manufacture them, if they had no way to distribute them? Bummer.

Does that mean Taylorís canít return defective Patterson's to Pietta for exchange or reimbursement? 

Does that indicate that mechanically speaking Pattersonís are a plural POS?

Disclaimer:  I have zero experience with a Patterson.  Word on the street is that they are hella damn problem prone.  I donít mind having to do a little smooth-up on a new purchase but when I buy a new C&B I need a shooter - not a wall hanger or a big fat shop project.  Anyway, Pattersons donít move me much.

Hi g dog. Hope all is well. It is my opinion that the issues with the Paterson were limited to the Pietta version. The Uberti version functions just fine and was built to a higher quality than Pietta. I have two Uberti Patersons that are very well built and function as they should.

I want one purely for it's historical-ness. Much the same reason I'd like to have a Walker. Just for it's point in history.

A very wise man on here told me once, that these guns have to be taken in their historical context. They can not be expected to perform as a modern gun. Once you drop that expectation and just enjoy the gun and all it's idiosyncrasies, the guns realize their full potential.

Indeed Dave. And a few shooters of said guns will go on to realise that they themsevles have increased their personal potential as a shooter and historian.
