Historical icon of the Civil War
I hoped to find a blued version that didn't have brass, but this authentic looking antiqued grey fit the bill. The working action is great and cylinder cycles flawlessly. Only minor quibble is the wooden handle is not extremely solid on the fit to the steel. But the solid quality of the materials is top notch and this fulfills a childhood dream acquiring my favourite revolver of the 19th century. The M1873 Peacemaker is more solid when given the shake test, as the M1860 has some wobbling of pieces, but this is a large piece with a much longer barrel. Overall excellent value and price.
