    it is a cap and ball black powder revolver that I believe is a colt navy revolver the collecotr armory should have this for a very reasonable price. I have a belt and holster replica if your interested but I am a big guy 44-46. keep in mind this is a non firing replica. I also do replica snakes from resin then painted with chrome paint and weathered.

    I was under the impression that the pistol Clint used was a 1951 Colt-Richards/Mason conversion. Basically a percussion cap and ball revolver converted to brass cartridge use. Not historically accurate for the time frame for the film.

    I could be wrong it's been a few years since I last watched that film.

    Well, the films also have belt loops, etc.

    Wouldn't that be 1851?

    Mantis, where did you get the poncho from?

    There is a website out there from a guy who sells super accurate wool ones for about 400.

    I have been tempted to buy one from him but his customer service skills seem to be lacking.

    Dave, just out of curiosity, does your borther like High Plains Drifter as well?

    Let me know -- if so, then I may have something pretty cool for you...

    I found a woman that does the ponchos for.....wait for it....$125.... And they are phenomenal. She had a Mexican artist do them utilizing tons of screen caps and behind the scenes photos.

    My brother loves that entire genre....whatcha got????

    Re: NEED help desperately!

    ...and the Cimarron Firearms "Man With No Name" was already mentioned in post #3 of this very thread. :D

    Re: NEED help desperately!

    To be honest, I wanted to see how long took for someone to say, "You know how old this is don't you...". BUT I'll take the hit for not seeing it posted in #3 already.

    This is what you get when you try to "search" the forum for stuff so you don't repeat a question, only to find other interesting threads that sidetrack you.

    No hit need be taken, I was just funnin' with you...

    ...and thank you for actually taking the time to do a search before posting a question, that alone gives you the right to bump a 3 year old thread! :thumbsup
