Cal.45 Peacemaker revolver 4,75", USA 1873

54

Revolver reproduction 4,75" made of metal and wood, with simulated mechanism of charge and firing and rotating drum.

The Peacemaker revolver, also known as Single Action Army (SAA), was designed by Samuel Colt in 1873 and it was manufactured with different lengths of cannon: the short, 4.75-inch version, the longer versions 5.5- and 7.5-inch, or The imposing 12-inch "BuntlineSpecial".

This weapon was initially used by the US Army. However, within a few years, most of the American citizens got one of these revolvers. The fact that it used ammunition of the same caliber as the Winchester M1873 rifle helped its popularization as a short weapon in the old North American West in the late nineteenth century.

Curiously, this revolver has received numerous nicknames. Apart of the mentioned Peacemaker, also it was known as Frontier or Widowmaker, in reference to the facility of this revolver to left widows among the wives of the time.

The film industry mythified the "Peacemaker" in the westerns of the 40s and 50s, and it was associated with big screen stars like John Wayne or Gary Cooper. Also Roosevelt had one with his initials engraved and George S. Patton used two.

Feel the role of a great western with the DENIX reproduction of this revolver!

    This thing is super cool! It’s feels and looks very real. Only problem is with mine my wood grips are just a little loose. I don’t want to rip the stars off the grips to fix it unless I can and if anyone knows if I can please let me know. But regardless this thing is really cool and amazing for the price!

    I have two, and the best part about them isn't just that they have identical internal mechanical function to a Single Action Army, but that they *weigh* the same as an actual SAA 4 and 3/4" model; just a hair over two pounds unloaded.
