Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Guy with hat appears to be holding a colt SAA, it looks big enough to be Walker but there are not that many actually made. It is a little hard to make out but there does not seem to be any caps and might not be any nipples.

    Fire hatless guy it looks like a conversion, still SAA but the hammer is down.

    So real guns but they seem to have been made safe for the tubes to use in a staged photo.

    Really really cool. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Gun on the left looks to be some variant of the 1848 Colt Dragoon, the improved version of the Walker, and on the right, some generic Belgian double-action big bore revolver. Probably originally in .44-40, at least all the ones advertised in a scan of a year 1900 Sears catalog were listed that way. The Belgian made revolvers of all sizes were probably one of the most common handguns of the late 19th century. Usually sold for a 1/4 of the price of a Colt, in all your favorite calibers. Like Taurus of the Victorian era.
