New for 2021: Uberti 'Teddy' Revolver

One of the most gun-friendly presidents the United States has ever had is Theodore Roosevelt, and one of the most iconic firearms he owned was the Colt Single Action Army. Now, Uberti USA offers a faithful reproduction of Roosevelt's single-action revolver, complete with engravings and faux-ivory grips.

The Colt Single Action Army, introduced in 1873, is one of the iconic firearms of the American West. Used by U.S. Army cavalry troopers throughout the Indian Wars, the gun also played a prominent role in the tumultuous history of the "Wild West" as the favored sidearm of outlaws and lawmen. In fact, that's what Uberti named its collection of specially configured revolvers, as each gun is designed to look just like the single-action Colts used by the famous and infamous figures of the American West.

Theodore Roosevelt loved the American West, and before his presidency, he spent time as a cattle rancher and cowboy. In this period, his sidearm of choice was a Colt Single Action Army. Later, during his political career, he was gifted an engraved example of the gun complete with ivory grips, and that particular pistol is what's replicated in this new offering from Uberti.

The Uberti 'Teddy' revolver features laser engraving designed to match the engraving found on the original gun. In lieu of genuine ivory grips, the Teddy features polymer grips that are colored to mimic the creamy white of actual ivory, and the polymer even features a grain that's designed to match the grain found in actual ivory. The revolver features a 5.5" barrel and is chambered in the classic .45 Colt. The nickel-plated revolver retails at a suggested MSRP of $1,249.
