There was no doubt that the Colt Single Action Army revolver was the most popular gun in the west. Dubbed The Peacemaker, the gun was used through history by everyone from General Custard to General George S Patton. Powerful, great looking and accurate, the Colt .45 was also the choice of cowboys and bandits across the country (and the world).
This handsome 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 captures the essence of the Peacemaker, with no-nonsense steel and wood and fully workable hardware (non-firing though).
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.
