One of the most famous revolvers ever built is up for grabs in our Surplus Gun Giveaway. The Colt Model 1873 Single-Action Army, better known as the “Peacemaker,” is the first sixgun offered in our series of giveaways. This single-action revolver chambered in .45 Colt has a 4-3/4″ barrel and weighs in at 40 ounces. With its case-hardened frame, spurred hammer, crisp trigger pull and great overall quality, you’re getting one of the best guns of the Old West!
With such a nice-looking gun, you’ll need a just-as-fancy way to carry it! Bob Mernickle of Mernickle Holsters donated this top-of-the-line holster and matching shell carrier. Made of stingray, finished with an exotic tiger stripe, it can be carried as a strong side or crossdraw holster. The loops on the shell carrier are made with Herman Oak leather, which Bob considers as the finest leather in the world.
