The Uberti 1873 Cattleman series replicates many popular variations of the Colt 1873 Single Action Army, arguably the best-selling handgun ever produced. In 1875, the bird's head grip was incorporated into a new full-sized Colt revolver and the new shooting iron immediately became popular with lawmen and gunslingers alike, including the infamous Billy the Kid. The New Model Cattleman features an improved cylinder-pin retainer that is spring-loaded for easier release and removal of the cylinder pin. This America Remembers tribute revolver, one of only 500 produced, was created to honor George Armstrong Custer of the 7th Calvary and the other men who died at Little Bighorn. The firearm has extensive gold detailing as well as the original markings present on all Colts issued by the government during the 1870's. It comes with a wooden display case. The revolver's grips, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
