Revolver 1873 SAA Matte Black 5.5" Barrel .357 Mag pre war model Walnut Grips Pietta
FAP Di Pietta SA 1873 6 shot revolver chambered in 357 Magnum. This is a modern interpretation of the 1873 Single Action Army revolver, also known as the Peacemaker. This classic western single action pistol includes a transfer bar safety. Handsome wood grips, blued finish, 6 shot cylinder and fixed sights true to the original design. Manufactured in Italy.
New production in box. Made by the Italian company Pietta with warranty service provided in the USA by Century Arms in Vermont.
In my opinion these Pietta revolvers are on par with the current production Uberti 1873 guns With the main difference of having a transfer bar safety on the Pietta which allows you to carry the gun safely with all 6 chambers loaded. The Uberti guns are excellent guns too but they have the firing pin mounted in the hammer and it is commonly not recommended to carry them with all 6 chambers loaded because the firing pin rest on a live round and can discharge if dropped. This Pietta has an extra safety which requires the trigger to be pulled fully before the transfer bar can allow the firing pin to move.
