The 1866 Flatside Short Rifle limited edition is Uberti’s way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Winchester Yellowboy. It has the transitional flat-sided receiver of the very earliest 1866 rifles, a unique shape that disappeared in the course of the year 1866. The original is an early serial number owned by a Jewish-Italian collector who lovingly hid it away during the WWII Nazi occupation and saved it for posterity. He later sold it to Uberti, who has waited for a special occasion to replicate it in its most minute details. Only 350 units of this rifle was produced. It is lavishly engraved (hand-chased) like the original, most likely a presentation rifle for a military commission. Perfect for display, it also promises to be a head-turner at the range or in competition. In an attempt to gain military adoption, Winchester presented the Yellowboy rifle to government boards in the US and abroad. This is a reason why several lavishly-engraved specimens survive, as striking now as they would have been to the officials to whom they were presented. Our 150th Anniversary model replicates a rifle with a particularly fine engraving pattern, almost certainly executed by an American artist. Uberti's engraving is hand-chased so as to ensure that each piece is wholly unique.
