The history behind the Buntline SAA makes this model one of the most romantic and intriguing revolvers ever produced by Colt. Only a limited number of the Buntlines were produced by the factory. Legend has it that Ned Buntline, dime-novel author and showman, ordered five Buntlines as gifts to five Dodge City lawmen, including Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. No one knows with certainty if these famous lawmen did in fact receive these special revolvers, and the debate continues today.
Each of the official Buntline Special miniatures is a faithful copy of the original Colt, including the flat topped frame with adjustable folding rear sight. This variation has not previously been available to collectors of the Colt miniature series. R.L. Wilson noted firearms authority and author says, “The craftsmanship of the miniature Buntline is exquisite. The detail is superb.”
The Classic Edition is available in a limited edition of 1500. The frame is case-hardened, and the balance of the revolver is blued. Custom grips of select walnut complete this exceptional issue.
The Presidential Edition, issued in a limited edition of 1500, is hand-engraved in a traditional Colt pattern. All parts are blued, except for the frame which is case-hardened. The grips are select walnut.
Each miniature is fully functional. For safety reasons, no attempt should be made to fire these miniatures as this could cause serious injury and damage the miniature.
