Waiting on new revolver

I waited too long to fulfill an intch I had for a Uberti stainless target model 1858 Remington. After ordering it from Taylors I got an email stating it was back ordered and no time frame offered as to when it may be in.
I figured covid was to blame as Italy has been hard hit by it, and sure enough I found this today, two months old, but it seems to indicate that their shut down is far more grievous than ours has been.

"Unions in Italy have fought especially hard to have more sectors considered nonessential in order to protect workers."

Anyway, I hope I didn't break any rules posting this, it is related to most black powder shooting. I do hope Uberti and Pietta don't close down for good.
CNC produced 416 stainless triggers to replace the plastic triggers on Colt Mustangs, Mustang Plus II's, MK IV Government .380's and Sig P238's and P938's. Plus Colt Mustang hardened 416 guide rods, and Llama .32 and .380 recoil spring buttons, checkered nicely and blued.

I doubt that Pietta and Uberti will close down for good. IMO, there is a large demand for their products and will only increase as this situation continues. I checked the EMF website today and at least 50% of their offerings (Pietta) are temporarily out of stock. I found no site offering anything on sale (Cabela's, Dixie, Taylor's, Cimarron, S&S, Buffalo, Old South, etc.).

I have noticed that prices have skyrocketed recently on Ebay for Pietta parts.

Some folks like me are retired on SS with a small pension so don't have to worry (yet) about income, as small as it is. We got our stimulus checks in mid April, were/are well stocked with food & supplies, and I want to buy a BP revolver of a certain type, but it's not available.

If their few gunsmiths die from this virus, I am sure there are others in Italy to take their place. Both companies utilize CCC machining, so not much hand-fitting involved.
