Had this one on DVR for sometime and was watching it until the wife got home.

Will finish it in a few, but got me thinking.

What pistol would you have wanted in 1881?

One that I could get ammo for. I could be quite content with a old Colt single action arm, in either 44-40 or a 45 Long Colt. If I could go back to 1881, with a pistol and a life time supply of ammo, I would choose the same pistol I have now. EEA Witness in 10mm, it's a CZ 75 copy.

Now, let me restate.

What pistol (six shooter) of that era would you want to carry?

I'm thinking Colt Peacmaker.

The Sam Elliot movie by the same title is a much better movie.

Well being as the colt SAA 1873 known as the “peacemaker” was not around til 1873, and even then was only for military, I would go with a converted colt army revolver. Long, unbalanced, and heavy it would still do the job.

A Colt Walker and I'd hope it looked intimidating enough that I wouldn't have to use it.

Agree. Was really disappointed in the new one.

By the end of 1874, there had been 16,000 Peacemakers manufactured, of which 12,500 went to the military and 3,500 went to the civilian market and production went up from there. By 1881 the Peacemaker was well distributed on the frontier. It would have been my choice.
