Is Armi San Marco still in business?
Armi San Marco is out of business.
Does Uberti make good revolvers?
They have been outstanding. I gave them all action jobs when they were new (15 years ago) and they have been reliable, accurate revolvers. I’ve had to replace a trigger/bolt spring a time or two but that’s so simple than a Democrat could do it. Some Uberti models come with an action job.

Is Uberti better than Pietta?
The Uberti has the better action. They are both good guns. Fit and finish are equally good. I really like my sheriff’ s model Pietta better..but the full length loading lever is easier to load.
Are Uberti rifles any good?
The Uberti ’73 is the top rifle in cowboy action shooting. Why? Because that simple action (I like your “naval gun” comparison) can be made really smooth and fast. They are OK out of the box but if you let an experienced cowboy gunsmith work it over you will not believe how good it is.
Is Uberti any good?
In my opinion, Uberti does the best finishing of the Italian reproduction gun makers. That is not to say this is of the quality you would expect from a Turnbull finished gun. But for the price, it is very nicely done.
