    Looks great nothing. Ever think about designing a Colt 45 Peacemaker? I was doing some research last week on the Wild Wild West TV show and found out by accident that the Colt that Jim West carried had the same silver rattlesnake design on the handle that was on Clint Eastwoods Colt that he carried in the Man with no Name westerns. Clint's looks exactly the same except his handle is wood and Jim West's is shiney black. I read that Clint had his gun made by a gunsmith personally and carried it in all three italian western films. I couldn't find any info on Jim West's gun except photos that look exactly the same except for the black handle.

    Hello Ryan,
    Absolutely, incredible!!!!! I am completely blown away. I concur with Clif, a peacemaker in the future would be a great addition to your already magnificent craftsmanship. I think a certain Sci-fi, Western Captain's pistol would also be nice in a paper/cardstock rendition. Anyway, please contact me when you have posted this model. Thank you,
    Brad

    OK, I'll ask the dumb question,in the pic that shows the "ammunition" at the bottom of the pic, are the "black cylinders" representing powder charges??? I get the conical ball, and ball ammunition, but the black things???

    I have a replica "51" .36 cal, and a replica Walker Colt .44 cal.. Fun pieces to punch holes in targets with. Someone once told me that the Walker Colt .44 was, until Smith and Wesson released the .44 magnum, "the most powerful handgun in the world".


    Firing them is fun.......cleaning them is...wall1:curse:wall1

    Better and Better!!! The 3D file looks real. Probably better looking than General Lee's original.

    they simply represent the powder charge.they can be loaded with the projectiles into the cylinder.
