This unique, elegant and rugged non-firing replica is an exact reproduction of the Navy revolver carried by Wild Bill Hickok. This non firing replica of the famous .36 caliber 1851 Revolver is presented in a wood shadow box with a form fitting foam insert which locks the model into place, allowing for table-top or wall-display.
Following the Civil War, Bill Hickok became known as a scout, Indian fighter, lawman and the most famous gunfighter of the frontier. It is said that this pistol never left his side. He was shot in the back during a poker game in a saloon in Deadwood, South Dakota in 1876. The hand he was holding (black Aces and Eights) is still known as the "Dead Man's Hand" today.
The re-creation is a masterpiece of the gunsmith’s art, sheathed in gleaming nickel with every screw, spring and fitting in full working order. Every sculpted detail of the bald eagle – America’s symbol of freedom – will be captured in the grip of this magnificent antique replica gun. The shimmering backstrap of this reproduction is electroplated with gold. The intricate scrollwork of this famous old west pistol includes the powerful portrayal of a naval battle on the cylinder – every detail is emphasized by the hand-rubbed patina. The precision, functioning single action and loading lever of this cap and ball revolver share with the operator a realistic feel of what the original owner may have felt on the frontier.
