    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" octagonal barrel. 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.​

      An 1860 is on my short list, The Henry's are just so expensive.

        I haven't shopped any Umberti stuff in a while, but doesn't $1800 seem expensive for an Umberti?
        Have a nice day.

          I think I paid about $1600 for mine a few years back. It's gorgeous and very well made. The action is smooth as butter. So, no, it doesn't seem expensive for what you get. YMMV

        One of my early purchases (because I just thought it was so nice looking) was this Navy Arms Yellowboy from the late 60's chambered in 38 sp. It was sitting in a widows safe for years until she finally got it opened. It gathered a nice patina in the meantime. Other than a slight scratch on the receiver, it is still pristine. I almost tore my hair out when the ejector broke, but I was able to find one made by Taylor Arms. It sat around for about a year until I found a video of how to do it.
