Uberti Griswold and Gunnison
« on: June 30, 2020, 12:57:13 AM »
And, in the same lot from Rock Island, was a very rare Uberti Griswold & Gunnison made in 1971.  Unfired, unturned, in pristine condition. Brass frame, BS & TG are a mellow tan.  Unfortunately, I didn't get the box with this one.

That is an astounding find. I was not aware that Uberti ever made a brass-framed 1851 Navy "type" revolver.

There is no cylinder drag line, but it is obvious by the cylinder stop lots that the cylinder has been rotated. The markings on the right side of the barrel lug are not what Uberti does these days.

Very nice. I only have a Pietta G&G CP/2016 with all of the billboards. Envious!

I knew about Uberti brass framed revolvers.  This is about the 4th or 5th one I've had. and this one is subject to be sold like the others.  Since I posted this, I've had a couple people from other forums ring in that they also had a 1971 Uberti G&G.  Pietta owns have also chimed in that this looked better than their Piettas

You are correct about the bolt stops.  On further inspection, it has been dry fired from the nipple tracks on the hammer face.

I like it just because it's an Uberti with a brass frame. You just see them all the time.

Nice find Fingers.
