Fragile...must be from Italy!
My Atlas Copco air compressor was made in Italy. "Fragile" isn't the right word for what's wrong with its manufacturing. "Can't f*ckin do anything right" <--- would be closer
TBT, this sentiment really weighed on my mind, somewhat heavily I may add, before I pulled the proverbial trigger on my recent Uberti 1873 Winchester (.357 Mag) purchase but I dilly-dallied for far too long and when I finally decided to go for a lever action, it fell right into this friggin Pandemic times of gun & ammo shortages, ergo that is all that was left on Brownells (literally the ONLY lever action rifle left on their site at the time) plus the most crucial factor being that I have maybe about 700+ rounds of .357 magnum and 38 spl rounds scooped up which I can share with my revolver platform.
Under different circumstances, I would have perhaps gone with the Japanese made Winchester 1873 or on an entirely different vector with one of these more modern lever-actions with all the modern ammonites, but in my mind, those kind of stuff, although much more practical, would have diminished the "authenticity" and the old-school fun factors. TBT, I would have perhaps gone with an SS Henry chambered in 30-30 even though I am no fan of their on-top tube feeding systems which was one negative when I didn't order one when they were still around.
I have read around a bit and despite the Italians falling short on many manufacturing standards, when it came to these reproduction guns, Uberti seems to be doing a very decent job both on there single action pistols and their rifles. I dunno, only time would tell but if my really old school Beretta 84B Cheetah from the 80's be taken as a token of goodwill, the Italians seem to be doing a good job with certain things. After all, isn't your own heritage Italian?
Hey Matt the Italians make Ducati's, Ferrari's, Pinerello's, and Colnago's. I'd say that they know something about making very beautiful and functional tools.
I had an old Italian gelato case. It broke a lot.
Casino, I have a Rossi 92 in 357. I’ve had it probably 20 years. It’s one of my favorite guns.
Elvis owned a De Tomaso Pantera. He ended up shooting it!
Jest aside, Italians make exquisite looking stuff but they can also be finicky as heck!
I think one of the things the Italians do right is their shotguns. I’m sure some of that carries over into firearms in general!
My guess is they started out as rifles but ended up shotguns.

Any chance that some leather knives might come out of this ? ? ?
I HATE squirrels. I wanna eat them but my daughter won’t let me kill them. I’m coming with a new plan for tomorrow. @#$&*’+
