Since the year 1963 the replica manufacturing company carrying Aldo Uberti's name is providing the global community of collectors, shooters and reenactors with replicas of the iconic Civil War era Colt 1860 Army remarkably close to the real thing in all important aspects.
So did Aldo's team of miniature gun artists at the Uberti factory. They followed suit and faithfully replicated even the stocked variants of the 1860 as you can see on the pictures below.
Comparative views of two Uberti Colt 1860 Armies with 4-srew frames with and without shoulder stocks attached, rebated cylinder with Ormsby naval engagement scene: top a "father" replica #73176 year code AA (1975; courtesy Dieter Hummel Collection) vs. bottom a "son" miniature #323
The overall length of the miniature shoulder stock of this Colt 1860 Army #323 has been measured at 20,80 cm/8.189 inch. This makes it a mite longer than the one fitted to the Colt 1851 London Navy #PM146 in chapter 188.8.131.52.
