Okay Tiberius. I give. Your rig is just too awesome and I want one. I'm not alone here, either.
End the suspense and tell myself and anyone else how we can get one.
Yeah Tiberius, Are you selling these? I want in on one too.
That's an awesome rig T! OK, I'm in. Where can I get one?
Wow! A lot of interest here!
In answer to your querries, I've started a FS thread in the Junkyard.

I don’t normally answer forums, but there is a bunch of errors, and misnomers I see in this thread regarding Eastwoods gun, especially in the movie the Good the Bad and the Ugly…I would like to correct a few points if I may….
On the Tuco gun: You could swap parts…and maybe you would get a world beating pistol, but more than likely you would end up with an abortion of a handgun that would shoot sideways….And of course, the gun, like Eastwoods was a Hollywood conversion, not a amalgamation of parts from different guns.,,,,
Both guns were 1851 Navy Revolvers, 36’s….HOWEVER, they were reamed out to take the .38 caliber blanks available at that time…. Likewise, Eastwoods Model 29 masterpiece in the Dirty Harry movies were converted to .45 Long Colt because the blanks were far cheaper than (And at that time plentiful) .44mag blanks
Anyway, the Eastwood gun, was the 51 navy converted to .38, and although many of these guns were converted in the advent of cased ammo in the 1870’s, the real conversions were easy to spot….and didn’t look like the GBU guns with their black powder loading levers left in place…
Bottom line: Some of the worst Gaffs with firearms in movie history are in this movie….Just awful!!
As for the .36 caliber….Someone wrote, there has never been a .36 caliber….Well, depending how you look at it, .36 might have been the most popular handgun caliber of all time! .38 Caliber is actually .357 inches, hence .357 magnum, which is of course just a lengthened .38…..So .38 really is 36, and should have been named so….Just in case anyone was wondering, it came to be known as .38 because of S&W naming it 38, referring to the dimension of the loaded case, not the actual bullet…..Anyway
Van Cleef does have metallic cartridges in his loops, BUT…I suppose you could say they were for a Henry rifle….A stretch, and not the same size or type of ammo, but at least there’s an excuse…..The real issue, is in the dramatic end scene, Angel eyes gun goes from having the percussion caps in place, to having them NOT in place, then back again like magic….

Thanks for the info and details, KAR. I've always been interested in obtaining replica's of Clint's Peacemaker from GBU, but have never really been 100% sure what it was exactly. Do you think you could point me in the right direction?
Did anyone ever manage to find out where Tiberius got his awesome replica rig from??? I couldn't find any details in the Junkyard section that he mentions earlier.
Thanks in advance
