Uberti, manufacturer of classical, single-action revolvers, western heritage black powder revolvers, and cartridge rifles, expands its lineup of the famed Model 1866 lever action with the introduction of the 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe.

The 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe is based on the Uberti 1866 Yellowboy short rifle, boasting a 20-inch octagonal barrel and luxurious A-grade walnut stock and forend. Chambered for .45 Colt, the 10+1 capacity 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe includes a case-hardened lever that seamlessly blends the brass frame with rich walnut furniture.

While a finely crafted example of the iconic Model 1866, the Yellowboy Deluxe carries its distinction to the next level courtesy of its exquisite engraving work. The expansive brass presented the ideal canvas for famed Italian engraver Atélier Giovanelli to introduce classically inspired acanthus-leaf motifs across the polished receiver. Worked into the design is a bugling elk captured in a medallion-shaped frame. On the opposite side of the receiver is an escutcheon that can be left blank or be engraved with the owner's initials for a truly custom touch. Since the Model 1866 features a "closed top" design, except for the ejection port, a floral engraving is included across the top and bottom of the receiver.

Although the 1866 Yellowboy Deluxe strikes a commanding presence as a display, this rifle will not shy from the field. The .45 Colt chamber accepts a broad range of loads for everything from cowboy action and target loads to heavier loads suitable for hunting.
