Cal.45 Peacemaker revolver 12", USA 1873

31

Revolver reproduction 12" 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" used by the legendary Wyatt Earp in service with the Dodge City Peace Commission.

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!

    Acho muito interessante e de grande importância a indústria denix e suas peças maravilhosas que além de nós fazer reviver momentos históricos também tem papel importantíssimo na educação e nos ensinamentos da história e do processo revolução e evolução industrial. E uma grande pena que no Brasil não se venda essas peças maguinificas. Gostaria muito de conhecer um fornecedor que distribuísse as famosas repricas denix para o Brasil
