Description: Revolver 1873 SAA 45 Colt Color Case Hardened 7.5" Barrel Walnut Grips Pietta Pre war model
FAP Di Pietta SA 1873 6 shot revolver chambered in 45 colt. This is a modern interpretation of the 1873 Single Action Army revolver, also known as the Peacemaker. This classic western single action pistol includes a transfer bar safety. Handsome Walnut grips, blued finish, 6 shot cylinder and fixed sights true to the original design. Manufactured in Italy by Pietta.
One of the most typical figures of the old West is perhaps that of the Sheriff, armed with his gun and his star. And that beloved and feared, hated and respected gun, was an authentic milestone in the american history, tied up as it is to the life and to the myth of legendary characters: Buffalo Bill, Billy the Kid, Wild Bill Hickok, the Dalton brothers, Theodore Roosevelt, Captain Jack Crowford. That gun IS the Single Action Army, at once nicknamed “Peacemaker“ for its sure pacifving effect. The project, introduced in 1872, brought forth to face the demand of the american Ordnance Dept. for a new big caliber revolver destined to equip the cavalry, is to a large extent ascribable to a skilled technician named William Mason. Transfer bar safety so can be carried with all 6 chambers loaded
New production in box. Made by the Italian company Pietta with warranty service provided in the USA by Century Arms in Vermont.
In my opinion these Pietta revolvers are on par with the current production Uberti 1873 guns With the main difference of having a transfer bar safety on the Pietta which allows you to carry the gun safely with all 6 chambers loaded. The Uberti guns are excellent guns too but they have the firing pin mounted in the hammer and it is commonly not recommended to carry them with all 6 chambers loaded because the firing pin rest on a live round and can discharge if dropped. This Pietta has an extra safety which requires the trigger to be pulled fully before the transfer bar can allow the firing pin to move.
