From Robin Hood to Rob Roy, outlaws and bandits have captured our heart and imaginations (and sometimes our money) Throughout history. But no one captures that spirit of freedom and rebellion quite so well as the outlaws of the American Old West.
Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Butch Cassidy, Black Bart, The Sundance Kid, The Younger Brothers, John Daly, the list could easily fill pages and pages. Countless movies, books, comic books and other dramatic works have glorified the lives and lifestyles of outlaws like these. At one time or another, most of us have imagined ourselves living this sort of lifestyle, but in truth, very few people could do it for long. You needed a fast hand, a good eye and a whole lot of luck to avoid capture or a painful death at the hands of a Marshall or, worse yet, an angry mob.
This gorgeously crafted pistol is an excellent replica of a Colt .45 six-shooter pistol (available in Cowboy quickdraw (4 inch barrel) or Cavalry long-barrel (7 inch barrel) style). It features a satiny finished metal that is engraved from stock to site. Similar to our Gunslinger model, but with a matte finish that is more gritty and down-to-business.
The pistol can't actually fire, but you can cock the trigger to half or full and release it by squeezing the trigger. The cylinder actually turns when pull the trigger, like a real six shooter, moving to the next shell in line. You reload the gun by sliding a loading gate to the side, revealing one of the chambers. Slide a bullet in place (you can buy mock bullets down below or on the fake bullet page here) and move to the next cylinder. When you've fired off five or six rounds, just open the loading gate again and use the functional shell ejector rod to pop the casings out and load em up again.
These revolver reproductions are made of the highest quality parts, in Spain. Their size, weight and design are identical in every way to the original Colt single-action six-shooters of 1873. We can't tell you how much fun it is to hold one (well we could, but you wouldn't believe us until you tried one). We have several Strongblade employees who aren't really that into Western stuff or at least they weren't until they got their hands on these Western six shooters. There's something so addictive about these guns; you really can't put them down (no, really. We coat them with superglue before sending them out) (editor's note: no we don't). Adding a holster to the mix ensures regression to your childhood you'll hold shootouts regularly around your home or office. And when they're not on your hip, they make fantastic display pieces.
