Uberti Usa 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe Rifle F

In the midst of many modern platforms, Uberti USA is one company that's keeping history alive with its lineup of classic rifles and handguns. For 2023, the company offers a tastefully engraved and well-finished version of the classic Winchester Model 1866, one of the first lever-action rifles that truly established this iconic American action as a fixture in firearm history.

The Uberti 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe, chambered in .45 Colt, is based on the company's earlier short rifle, and it features a 20" barrel with a round profile. The rifle is stocked in A-grade walnut, and it features a 10-round tube magazine running under the barrel. The six-groove barrel features a 1:16" twist rate, and the overall length of the rifle measures in at 36". Unloaded, the rifle weighs 8.2 lbs.

What really stands out is the next-level engraving found on the brass receiver, which was designed by famed Italian engraver Atélier Giovanelli. The engraving features acanthus-leaf motifs across the receiver, and a bugling elk is worked into a medallion-style frame. Opposite this engraving is a blank escutcheon that can be engraved with the owner's initials for an extra custom touch. Finishing off the engraving is a floral design at the top and bottom of the receiver.

The suggested retail price on the Uberti 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe rifle is $1,799. For more information, visit uberti-usa.com.
