The first model offered, immediately accepted with great support from the market, especially from the US, was the Colt 1851 Navy, followed by some of its most popular versions. The great immediate success led to an extension of the range with the introduction of other famous models: the 1860 Army, the 1858 New Model Army, the LeMat, which won the prestigious award as “1985's best weapon" by the American National Association of Federally Licensed Firearms Dealers. Each component is manufactured according to production cycles designed to obtain complete interchangeability, also thanks to strict quality controls carried out on all the components. Staff experts and highly specialized personnel run the operations of settings, cleaning, assembly and revision totally handmade. The results of this research of the absolute quality speaks for itself: the confidence and esteem of an international clientele demanding, which is that of marksmen professionals, and a series of astonishing wins with World Record scores (to highlight in particular the exceptional performances of Remington revolver model).
In 2002 F.A.P. F.lli Pietta decided to enrich his already wide range of Old West replicas with the most famous revolver known to date: the 1873 Single Action Pietta Model. A lot of hard work was implied at human level in this gun’s design, introduced to the US market and to the Cowboy Action Shooting shooters that same year in September. During the first SASS® (Single Action Shooting Society®) Convention held in December at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, this gun, designed and wanted by the F.A.P. F.lli Pietta, won within just 3 months production the confidence of his most devoted customers. The reliance in this new product lead to the Award as Best Gun of 2002. Prized for the reliability of the selected materials, the care given to each single part and to its production, this 1873 S.A. revolver Pietta model adds prestige to the current line of guns that F.A.P. F.lli Pietta produce long since. The same Award was granted in 2008 thanks to the special shooting version called “Alchimista Model”.
1851 ModelsThe 1851 Navy model was probably Col. Samuel Colt’s favourite. He named it Navy Model, meaning its use on the sea thanks to the small .36 cal. It was instead sold in larger quantities to the Army and became inseparable companion of the Yankees during the Civil War. The 1851 Navy Yank model was considered as one of the most brilliant single action revolver thanks to its fast draw out and light recoil. Available in the versions “SHERIFF’S Model” with shortened barrel (the favourite gun of Wild Bill Hickok, the legendary sheriff of Abilene), CIVILIAN Model with silver plated brass backstrap and triggerguard and the LONDON Model with squareback triggerguard, like the ones produced from 1853 to 1856 in the city which they took the name from.
1858 ModelsThe production of firearms by Remington goes back to 1816 when Eliphalet Remington produced his first gun in Ilion, N.Y. Thanks to the talent of his designer Mr. Beals, in 1858 he patented and started production of a revolutionary weapon : the 1858 NEW MODEL ARMY .44 CAL. Our range covers various versions : the 1858 NEW MODEL NAVY in .36 cal., the TARGET version with adjustable front and rear sight in .44 cal. or the NICKEL plated version available with brass or steel frame . Another version is the STAINLESS STEEL , designed to better stand the wear caused by the black powder. For whoever prefers the long barrel we propose the 1858 BUFFALO .44 cal. . The range is accomplished by the 1858 TEXAS with brass frame .36/.44 cal
1860 ModelsThe last models produced by Col. Colt before his death were the 1860 Army Model .44 cal. and the 1861 Navy Model .36 cal., built using the new steel-silver alloy discovered in the Col. Colt’s plants.
We have introduced various models in our range: PIETTA SHERIFF’S Model (o), PIETTA 1860 ARMY BRASS FRAME, an inexpensive variation of the original steel frame gun, PIETTA 1861 NAVY, with brass backstrap and triggerguard, PIETTA 1862 NEW YORK METROPOLITAN POLICE .36 cal., the gun which was for many years the ordnance weapon of the N.Y.P.D., with silver plated backstrap and triggerguard, THE PIETTA 1862 POLICE “PONY EXPRESS” .36/.44 cal. with brass frame.
PIETTA’s 1873 Single Action RevolversAfter a careful study and a massive use of our human resources, this gun, according to some American experts whom it has been submitted to, turns out to be the best and the most suitable one to answer the demands of the modern cowboys: lasting reliability and interchangeability with the old west originals, we produce this gun using the best technologies and the best material available nowadays.
Every single revolver is taken care of and checked by skilled personnel. It is available in the three traditional barrel lengths (4 ¾ ”, 5 ½”, 7 ½”), in the .45LC, .357Mag and .44/40W calibers, case-hardened, nickel plated or stainless steel frame with oil polished European walnut grips or with PVC ivory looking grips. These are some of the features of our 1873 S.A. Revolver.
ShotgunsThe gas operated system was not sufficient.
The inertial system was not either.
Thus we have tried and the tenacity gave its results.
Three new lines with patented profile allow the hunter the possibility to select his ideal beating companion. Thanks to these new lines, to the ventilated 7mm (.275”) rib,welded all along the length of the barrel, to the variable drop, our hunter’s brain can finally see with certainty what’s pointing to.
The receiver made out of light aluminum alloy features 2 finishes, one matte nickeled and the other bright black , protected by an anodized oxidation.
The bolt, both for the gas operated and the inertial, is of the type with revolving head that guarantees a greater stability and fluidity in movement. Joined with an integral double charging lever to the sleeve, it adds technical innovation to the already very developped blocking system of this kind of bolts.
The forend and the stock are made out of european walnut, varnished or oil polished according to the selected finish. Both and both versions feature an innovative shape of checkering.
The fiberglass reinforced tecnopolymer triggerguard helps to keep the lightness of the gun without affecting its reliability and solidity.
The cut-off, placed on the right side of the receiver has been carried out by simplifying the mechanism, the shape and by increasing the functionality.
The barrel made out of SAE4140 steel has been submitted to rigid ultrasonic controls that guarantee the goodness of the material. All provided with internal chokes, our semiautomatic shotguns are supplied with an innovative wrench with two goals : first is to screw and unscrew the standard chokes and second is to screw and unscrew the ring nut that locks the spring inside the magazine.
The winning finishes, the pointing speed, the technological innovations range these rifles in a new page of means at hunters’ disposal.
