Thought you all would like this. Thank you Madcratebuilder for the case, and natchezjim for finding the pistol. Case and upper pistol are the new items. Lower pistol and accessories I've had a while.

The case is a Second Generation Colt French fitted presentation case with the Colt logo on the lid. The top 1860 is a 1985 vintage Uberti Stainless Steel 1860 Army that was imported by Allen Firearms, Sant Fe, NM. The bottom 1860 is a stainless steel 2nd Gen made in 1982 and the accessories are all 2nd Gen Colt.

One thing I noticed right away about the pistols was the Uberti is highly polished while the Colt is matte finished.

I'd love to have another Allen Firearms 1860 to put in this case. And would like to find more of the stainless Allen Firearms Ubertis that were imported. They made five different models between about 1982 and 1985. I've got 2 - the 1851 Navy & 1860 Army - and would love to find the other three - 1861 Navy, Pocket Navy, and Pocket Police.

Anyone know where there are any - please let me know.

Dang, those 1860's really make the case pop. Glad you had the guns for it.
