    I've had my Wells Fargo 1849 for five years and it's still as good as new. I would like to know if Denix are planning to update this model with a longer barrel or engraving etc. I still don't understand why the half nickel and half black is so popular as it's not as authentic looking as the antique grey one in my humble opinion.

    Nicely made replica, quite realistic, I would like to see a all nickel revolver instead of the two tone one and as other reviewers have said a five shot cylinder with chambers and barrel having the same size bore too.

    My favourite Denix replica. Metal polish will make it shine like a nickel plated pistol, a small notch in the nose of the hammer for a authentic back sight, a small brass shotgun bead sight at the muzzle and a little screw in the bottom of the grip frame make this realistic replica even more like the real thing. Just take a look at a real one, these mods are easy. I would love to see Denix make this model with a 4" barrel and 5 shot cylinder.

    Comparatively few Colt 1849 pocket models were made with 6 shot cylinders, of the 4000 3" Wells Fargo models I have never heard of any being made with a 6 shot cylinder.
    However this Denix model is realistic and I'll up grade to 5*.

    Later versions of the pocket model were 6 shot so the replica is authentic.
