Pietta Celebrates

Pietta Firearms is celebrating its 60th year in business, having become an industry leader in manufacturing refined, historical firearm reproductions and quality, innovative, modern firearms. The company made its humble start in 1963—in Gussago, Italy—when Giuseppe Pietta made a commitment to produce guns as authentic and true-to-original as possible. Customer experience was, and still is, the primary focus, a key to the firm’s longevity and success.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity to deepen our roots in an amazing industry,” said Alessandro Pietta, one of Giuseppe’s two sons who are now running the company. “The entrepreneurial and artistic spirit of our father still runs deep through all of us at Pietta Firearms. We’re honored to continue to carry on the tradition, legacy and achievements set forth by him.”

“We are proud of our history, not only for all that Pietta has accomplished as the leader in manufacturing to the highest standard, but because we have always operated from a foundation of best-in-class replica firearms expertise,” said Alberto Pietta, the other brother at the firm’s helm. “We look forward to continuing to serve our customers by providing exceptional firearms the world can trust.”

The two brothers have stayed responsive to customer needs, but their investment in the future and creativity has allowed Pietta to grow into a world authority on replica and traditional firearms. The company not only produces exceptional single-actions and blackpowder revolvers, but modern firearms as well.

With a history that spans more than six decades, Pietta Firearms preserves its founder’s legacy as one of the leaders in both single-action and blackpowder revolvers.
