Looking through my photo library brought these up. Taken in the Uberti factory in 2005.

One of these bars is fed into a CNC machine....

Cool! From your post I presume you took the shots at the factory yourself. Maybe you can settle something for me; the pronunciation of the name Uberti. I've heard people say it as, 'you-birdy'. But I heard it said on a TV show highlighting Colt replicas as, 'oo-berdy'.

Either way they make some really nice firearms, especially for their price points.

ooh-BEAR-tee...

PS: Forgot to note that Maria Uberti told me this was a correct pronounciation of their last name when I was presented with an engraved SAA 367MAG as a thank you from her father.

I guess the Italians would say 'ooberty' while the rest of use pronounce it 'youberty', with a soft 't' rather than the 'd' as in your post, Colt-SL.

I have a few more photos of this trip including the Armi Sport/Chiappa factory and Pedersoli. If you'd like me to start a new photo thread I will do so.
