Pietta 1861 NYC Police?

Hey Guys...

After banging my head trying to use Pietta web sight... (You would think they would identify their Models at least... or am I missing something!). I thought I would try here! I couldn't get a good image to post... so here is a link...

http://www.pietta.us/products/Muzzle...y_1860_12.html

Is this the 1861 NYC Police? I really like the steel backstrap/trigger guard, short barrel and half flute... on this piece... any idea where I can get one? No luck with the usual places!

Thanks!
Fred

Maybe I am overly gaudy... but this revolver with Ivory grips would be sexy as hell!!!

It's really pretty...... but

I don't know anybody that has one fluted and checkered though.

Not sure where to get one, but I do have something real similar with a birdshead grip frame and an "old west" finish. Fine shootin' lil 36.

Taylor's had a brass frame 1860 Sheriff with a 1/2 fluted cylinder on sale the week before Christmas and it came with a free extra cylinder that was smooth for $179. They sold so many that they're on back order for those who ordered after their stock ran out.

Right now they have a similar deal on a full size brass frame 1860 with a free extra cylinder, but the cylinder isn't 1/2 fluted:

However they do sell an Uberti 1860 model with a fully fluted cylinder and blue finish & CCH frame:
