Product Details


From the Manufacturer

Guns of Outlaws: Weapons of the American Bad Man

A collection of Jesse James’s guns from counter-clockwise: the nickel-plated .44-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver was a very popular rival to the Colt; his ubiquitous 1851 Colt Navy percussion; a Remington 1863 New Army percussion; and, at the top, Jesse’s 1873 Colt Peacemaker with ivory grips. Frazier Museum, Louisville, Kentucky

The bank raiders’ corpses were dragged from where they were gunned down by the townspeople

and laid out for the home folks to view their handiwork. Postcards of the boys went for thirty-five cents each. They are: Bill Powers, Bob Dalton, Grat Dalton, and Dick Broadwell. Emmett Dalton was riddled, but survived. Dalton Defenders Museum

Hickok might have grown tired of packing those twin Colts everywhere, especially to his round of gambling saloons. To ease his burden, he began carrying a small Smith & Wesson .32-caliber spur trigger revolver in his waistcoat. This gun was enough to reach across a card table. Rock Island Auction Company

Wyatt Earp at age seventy-five in 1923, enjoying his golden years, living off the gritty reputation he built over the decades of moving from town to town across the West, and spinning the yarns everyone wanted to hear.

Thompson and his 1921 Tommy Gun at yet another military trial. While its firepower was awesome, the army brass was not convinced

that such a terror weapon was needed.

Clyde with a Krag rifle and Whippet cropped-down autoloading shotgun.

Testing a bulletproof vest outdoors with a revolver.

This Colt has been modified for fanning the hammer with the palm of the hand by filing off the front of the trigger guard and the trigger. Great speed, much noise, little accuracy.
