A master engraver has painstakingly matched every fine line and flourish of the this polished, nickel-plated, antique replica gun’s unique scrollwork – on the barrel, cylinder, hammer, frame, backstrap and triggerguard. With the hammer at half-cock, you can “break” the gun open to reload, just as they did in the old days. Thumb up the hatch, swing the frame down on its hinge, and the shell-extractor glides out from the cylinder…retracting again when the gun is fully open. The 8” barrel worked to the advantage of a marksman, dampening muzzle kick and enhancing accuracy. For fast reloads, the entire frame swings down, revealing all six chambers.
