Josey Wales?

I love those pistols! Can I get a replica?

Aren't they SAA Colts?

ACtually I am willing to bet they are either Remington Navy Revolvers or Colt Black Powder pistols. .......or maybe that was The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly.

I thought he carries a cartridge converted 1860 Army? Crud. Now I'm going to have to watch the movie again. Got me wondering! I thought he had several pistols, actually. Cpt. Redleg

The same ones [b]Al Pacino[/b] used in "The Sound of Music." [:D] [devil]

A lot of people think the (two main ones) were 1858 Remington Navys, but [i]The Owtlaw Josie Wales[/i] used Two Colt 1860 Army Model Ds, one 1863 New Model Army Model, and don't forget the 1849 Pocket .31', and the .54' monster Sharps falling block! [:)] Ever wonder how Clint Eastwood could have fanned those big 1860 Dragoons (Pietta reproductions, actually)?

Better yet, you have a choice of at least three companys besides Uberti. [:)]

I thought they were Colt Walker Dragoons but I might be wrong.

Well, it's not that I don't know the difference between the '60 Colt and the '58 Remington, but I'd swear his Colt's were some sort of cartridge conversion. It's just when I first saw that movie years back it stuck in my mind because I'm not sure there were any cartridge conversions available for the Colt as early as that movie is supposed to have taken place. I remember them appearing to be Richards Colts, which wouldn't have been available until '71, if memory serves. Dangit now I'm going to have to find my copy of that movie. Oh well. As good an ecuse as any to watch it again I guess. [:D] Cpt. Redleg

The two in the pic are [i]Third Model Dragoons[/i] (sometimes they look a lot like 1847 Walkers). I'd rather have a solid-frame Remington, but there's just something about those enormous Dragoon revolvers that's hard to resist.

Im pretty sure your correct. A friend of mine has 2 replica walkers he bought just because of that movie & they look the same to me.

the ONLY thing sucky about those is when you fire it,the loading lever will fall down as It has no retaining latch.

[url]http://webpages.charter.net/dougd/malpaso/josey.htm#guns[/url] * Josey's main guns are Colt Walkers, the magnum handgun of the day. These would have likely been captured from a Union cavalryman. * His two backups, carried in shoulder holsters, appear to be Colt Navies. * His rifle, only used twice, during the "Missouri Boat Ride" and "Comancheros" scenes, is some type of Sharps with a telescopic sight, which would have been the sniper rifle of the time.

At the end, he uses two Walker Colt 44s. You can see the main difference in Walkers and Dragoons because Walkers have no catch at the end of the barrel for the tamping rod. He carried a number of pistols in the movie. Remember that he was supposed to be a raider. No time to reload so it was not uncommon for them to carry 4 saddle pistols. Walkers, Dragoons, 1860 Armys, etc. I can't remember which guns he carried when he smoked the two pilgims in the trading post.

Most of the movie was filmed with Eastwood using very light rubber reproductions. I got to handle one of the repros when the NRA Museum had their "Guns in the Movies" exhibition. I also got to handle one of the S&W M-29s used in filming "Dirty Harry". GunLvr

He used a cartridge conversion in "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". I remember a scene when he was in a hotel room with the pistol stripped for cleaning, had to reassemble and load as the BG burst thru his door. There was another movie where he carried spare cartridge conversion loaded cylinders as speedloaders.

That would be 'Pale Rider.' "Nothing like a fine piece of hickory..."
