DENIX Wells Fargo story by Sándor Senkó

    Visually very good replica, very few were made with a six shot cylinder so I would prefer the earlier five shot, also a four inch barrel all nickel or all black or all grey. Plus a .31 cal barrel to match the chamber size. Small suggestions but would make this model more popular.

    Just got one and I love it! I did my home work on the real one, before buying and found this correct in the 6 shot and no loading leaver for some of the 1860-63 versions. Close enough in all else to make me satisfied I could use it in fiction illustrating and writing as a good guide to the real thing. I even found one real one so close in detail on auction that I mistook for a Denix!

    Love this pistol, it feels right in the hand and looks pretty neat too. Mine doesn't always line up correctly but I don't want to take it apart to see if it can be fixed. As suggested it really does polish up well. I also have all the accessories the real one came with, looks great on display.

    Very realistic and easy to customize to make it even more realistic apart from the 6 shot instead of 5 shot.
    The Wells Fargo is a good back up gun or ladies pistol for reenactment of the Civil War period.

    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.
