Uberti Hardin and Teddy revolvers: the new models of the Uberti "Outlaws & Lawmen" line
Uberti Hardin and Teddy revolvers models: Uberti USA – the north American subsidiary of the Uberti company of Italy – expands the famed Uberti Outlaws & Lawmen series of replica revolvers
The history of the Old West pitted heroes and gunfighters against each other in a fight for control of the expanding frontier. Uberti USA celebrates this duality with the addition of the Hardin and Teddy replica revolvers to the Outlaws & Lawmen Series. The two new guns join Uberti USA’s homage to famous heroes and gunfighters such as Jesse James, Frank James, Doc Holliday, Bob Dalton, Wild Bill Hickok and William “Billy the Kid” Bonney.
The Uberti Hardin revolver
After reportedly killing his first man at aged 15, John Wesley Hardin spent the rest of his life being pursued by lawmen. Hardin sewed his holsters into his vest with the butts of the pistols pointing inwards so he could quickly pull them with a cross draw, which Hardin claimed was the fastest way to draw. Uberti USA’s Hardin revolver follows the lines of his S&W top-break revolver.
Aesthetically, the Hardin revolver’s contrast of case-colored frame against the charcoal blue barrel and 6-shots cylinder along with a simulated bison-horn grip gives the gun a unique look that draws the eye. Chambered in .45 Colt, the Hardin features a 7-inch barrel and fluted cylinder for an authentic styling reminiscent of the glory days of the Old West.
Other features of the Uberti Hardin revolver include a six-grooves, 1:16" RH rifling, an overall weight of 2.6 lbs (1,17 kg) and an overall length of 12.8" (32,5 cm). The MSRP is set at $1,497 in the US; the Uberti Hardin revolver is covered by a 5 years warranty.
The Uberti Teddy revolver
Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt wore many hats throughout his lifetime, including hunter, conservationist, military officer and the 26th U.S. President. Frequently along with him on his adventures and service, his beloved Colt revolver was close at hand. The Uberti USA Teddy revolver faithfully replicates Roosevelt’s beloved 1873 Colt.
The Uberti Teddy features full laser engraving along the frame, cylinder and barrel. Fully nickel plated, the revolver’s look is complemented by simulated ivory grips for a striking appearance. Chambered in .45 Colt, the Teddy is durable as it is beautiful and embodies a true American hero who lead a life full of adventure.
Other features of the Uberti Teddy revolver include a 6-grooves, 1:16" RH rifled 5.5" (13,9 cm) barrel; an 11" (27,94 cm) overall length and an overall weight of 2.3 lbs (1,04 kg). The Uberti Teddy revolver is sold in the US at an MSRP of $1,249, and is covered by a 5-years warranty.
