The Traditions Frontier Series 1873 Single-Action Revolver provides the legendary quick-pointing characteristics of the famous revolvers used to tame the West. The Frontier Series comes with a color-case hardened finish on the main frame, and a high-polished blued barrel, cylinder, and grip frame. The Liberty Model has screw-less, 1-piece, white PVC grip panels; laser engraved with the word "LIBERTY" and an eagle symbol. The revolver barrel, cylinder, and trigger area are also engraved with intricate designs. The Traditions 1873 Single-Action Revolver uses a transfer bar internal ignition system, allowing the revolver to be carried safely with all 6 chambers loaded, as the gun will not fire if dropped on the hammer over a loaded chamber. The sixgun loads from the traditional half-cock hammer position. A fixed blade front sight and a notched rear sight provide shooters with fast sight acquisition, and do not snag when drawing the revolver from a holster. The front of the cylinder is beveled, making the gun easier to re-holster. Traditions Single-Action Revolvers are a great choice for cowboy action shooting or field carry in the outdoors.
