Known as the ‘Peacemaker’ the hand gun that played a pivotal role in the expansion of the Wild Wild West. This replica model of the 1874 .45 calibre hand gun offers a flavour of what the army and frontier-folk used to defend themselves. Seeing more than 20 years of service this gun design revolutionised firearms becoming the iconic revolver of the West. Not only was it strong and relatively simple, it was famed for its reliability and accuracy and the fact that it allowed loading of the six chambers through a loading gate. Interestingly, the gun didn’t have a safety mechanism, users favoured leaving one chamber empty to eliminate the risk of the gun going off if dropped. This metal model has a unique age worn patina from use as a prop, it has a weight similar to the genuine article and measures 28cm in length. The single action firing mechanism works and the barrel revolves to advance. An interesting display piece or prop where use is permitted. £115.00 including postage to U.K. zone 1 addresses. For postage costs to addresses outside U.K. zone 1 and overseas postage please enquire prior to placing your order thank you.
