    Dec 27, 2010, 10:51 AM - True Grit props?... #1

    A really great film!

    One thing I noticed was Barry Pepper's pistol. Looked liked a Colt but had black grips with a gold or silver cloverleaf. Similar to the look of the "Hand of God" gun in 3:10 to Yuma.

    Anybody else notice any cool props?

    Excellent movie.

    I imagine that Mattie's father's pistol would be the most obvious thing to recreate, but I actually liked Rooster's eye patch. It appeared to be leather instead of some sort of cloth.

    "Lucky" Ned Pepper (Barry Pepper) carries a Remington 1875 revolver with custom four-leaf clover emblem grips.



    And yep, it was a fine retelling of the story!

    Saw the movie and loved it. I've always had a heart for western revolvers, and this movie solidified my desire for a replica. Particularly Mattie's Dragoon.



    Here's a decent pic of her father's belongings, including the gun.



    Some possibilities in there. Anyone know where to get a decent replica of a dragoon?

    I couldn't find anything on the Dragoon, but found this nice blank-firing replica of Rooster's 1851 Navy pistols...

    1851 NAVY BRASS - EMF Company

    I almost bought from these guys when I was kicking around the idea of a 3:10 to Yuma rig

    Uberti makes some mighty nice replicas. They pop up on Gunbroker.com fairly often. There's a 3rd Model Dragoon (.44 cal) up right now for 275.00.

    For my money I'd buy a real working replica over a non-firing. No FFL needed, can be shipper straight to your doorstep. Their conversion revolvers are pretty sweet also.

    400 bones for a dragoon eh? Damn, I was hoping for something more in the $100 - $150 range. That one ghostsoldier posted looks allright, can't tell by the picture though. Nice to know the options are there though! Thanks

    Any idea which version Dragoon was used in the film?

    Those uberti's are sweet!

    That's the msrp.

    Trust me you get for cheaper.

    I understand wanting cheaper, now. Trust me if you save up & buy the real deal you'll like yourself a lot more when you're still firing it 20 plus years from now. Plus the patina that comes with real age and use will look a heck of a lot better than that "antiqued finish"

    imfdb says First model. Can't see a difference between first & second. 3rd model has a different trigger guard.

    Keep in mind, if you are underage or your state, county and/or city prohibit real firearms, or are a reenactor (like me) and need a lot of different firearms in your collection, then the replica versions will work fine for most purposes.

    I have a couple myself, made by Denix, and they are believable in the realest sense...you can't hardly tell them from my real Uberti Cattleman SA .45 LC...plus, they are a helluva lot cheaper to buy, especially if you need two of them, like Rooster!

    I guess it depends on whether you want them to be able to fire or not.

    Me, not so much.. especially the black powder guns like the Dragoon or the "Navy Six".

    I'm picking up a Ruger Vaquero with my tax refund, so that will fill my need for a SAA-type pistol (and not as twitchy as an actual SAA or clone). In the meantime, I just ordered a Denix M1851 Navy for about $65.

    The 1851 doubles up, too.. Eastwood used one (with cartridge conversion) in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. And it makes for a good conversation piece. Now I need a plaque to hang it on the wall somewhere.

    Same here. I've got the real SAA clone, but since I don't do any CAS (cowboy action shooting) anyway, carrying "fakes" while reenacting is the best deal for me; plus, it avoids any potential gun law conflicts, especially when I go out-of-state...and if one gets stolen, I'm only out 60 bucks or so!
