very solid and pretty
Had to write a review on this. I've had so-so replica pistols earlier but was determined to take a chance on this as it is such a beautiful design and I wasn't disappointed. The gun is very solid, heavy, and the faux-ivory body feels quality. The whole thing is a tight piece of work and the rotating barrel is probably a very authentic touch of the era. The only thing I might request of the maker is that the hammer and frizzen (the angled piece that comes down on the pan) are always a little loose and "clattery", which goes with every replica I've felt. What they need is a little black nylon washer that will shim those parts and add some friction. That's what I'm heading to the hardware store to get. Other than that, I give it a 5-stars. If I had the wall space I'd become a collector from this company. Thanks.
