Today, replica manufacturers do their best to produce authentic reproductions of historical sixguns and leverguns. This was not always the case and every time I saw a brass-grip frame on what was supposed to be a Colt Single Action Army, the movie was over as far as I was concerned.

There have been several men and several manufacturers responsible for this and one of those manufacturers is Pietta.
