The Easter Gunny dropped by for a visit! Leaving a trail of .44 caliber eggs behind….. Model 1858 New Model Army, 12-inch barrel, modeled after the mythical "Buntline Special" revolvers. (And despite what you may have read as "fact", the story of Ned Buntline giving these revolvers to folks like Wyatt Earp are almost certainly myth.) Modern reproductions are manufactured in Italy by F. LLI Pietta and sold in the US under the nameplate of Traditions Firearms. Believe it or not, this is a very, very well balanced firearm despite the long barrel.
