Miniature reproduction of a 4.75 revolver - made of metal, with a loading and firing simulator mechanism and a rotating drum.
The Peacemaker revolver, also known as Single Action Army (SAA), was designed by Samuel Colt in 1873 and was manufactured with different barrel lengths: the short version, 4.75 inches, the longest forms, 5.5 and 7.5 inches, or the imposing -Buntline Special-, 12 inches.
This weapon was initially used by the US military. However, in a few years the majority of American citizens took over one of these revolvers. The fact that he used ammunition of the same caliber as the Winchester M1873 rifle helped its popularization as a short weapon in the old North American west at the end of the 19th century.
Curiously, this revolver has received numerous nicknames. Apart from the aforementioned Peacemaker, it is also known as Frontier or Widowmaker, in reference to the ease with which this revolver left wives of the time.
The film industry mitigated the -Peacemaker- in the westerns of the 40s and 50s, and associated with big screen stars like John Wayne or Gary Cooper. Roosevelt also had one with his recorded initials and George S. Patton used two.
