As far as quality goes they're both about the same now. Uberti is a lil more authentic looking as they don't have their name plastered on the side of the barrel but Pietta is the best bang for the buck. I've posted this before but since you're new here I'll put it up again. It's my 1860 by Pietta. Pietta even has the safety pins on the cylinder, not sure if Uberti does or not.
