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

51

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!

    Hi there this one is awesome, only a tiny problem it dosn´t always fire every 6 cap bullets like this
    1150/G Cal.45 Peacemaker revolver 5½", USA 1873 works every time

    Oh on my ongoing request about every gun should be capable of using cap-bullets, or for modern guns bullets eject when cocking back the slide is, when you´re in a play / theater so boring if the actor shouts bang, or if just plating with them watching a movie, i do i understand if making movies sounds can be added cap thing also go for the Colt army with nipples and front loading, sorry if am getting on your nerves All i want is suggest improvements or new ideas

    kind regards

    Peter
