Our Assessment: Produced in limited numbers by Uberti, this is a clone of the revolver used by Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables franchise of ensemble action movies. With a short 3 1/2″ barrel, ported for recoil reduction and a raised hammer spur with roller for fanning, this revolver is a fast-handling, fast-firing re-boot of an old favorite, much like Stallone’s role in the franchise. The revolver is in Fine condition showing some light handling and storage wear, and comes with its original box. This will make a great addition to any collection, but especially fans of The Expendables franchise and unique revolvers. Please see our photos and good luck!
