January 2023, Accokeek, MD – Uberti, the world’s leading manufacturer of classic single-action revolvers, Western heritage black powder revolvers and cartridge rifles, expands its line of the famous lever-action Model 1866 with the introduction of the 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe.
The 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe is based on the Uberti 1866 Yellowboy short rifle, with a 20-inch octagonal barrel and a luxurious Grade A walnut stock and fore-end. Chambered for .45 Colt, the 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe holds 10+1 Includes a hardened lever that seamlessly blends the brass frame with walnut furniture.
While a finely crafted example of the iconic Model 1866, the Yellowboy Deluxe takes its distinction to the next level thanks to its exquisite engraving work. The expansive brass presented the ideal canvas for famed Italian engraver Atélier Giovanelli to introduce classically inspired acanthus leaf motifs into the polished receiver. Worked into the design is a cornet elk captured in a medallion shaped frame. On the opposite side of the receiver is a shield that can be left blank or engraved with the owner’s initials for a truly personalized touch. Since the 1866 model features a “closed top” design, except for the ejection port, floral engraving is included on the top and bottom of the receiver.
Although the 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe makes a commanding presence as a display, this rifle won’t shy away from the field. Chambered in .45 Colt it accepts a wide range of loads for everything from cowboy action and target loads to heavier loads suitable for hunting.
