Gunsmoke did good
« on: June 02, 2016, 11:12:32 AM »
Hi, my wife and me have been watching the old B&W Gunsmoke videos on DVD. It was interesting to see in season 9 that the 1855 Colt Root percussion revolving carbine and Colt 1851 revolver were featured. We are getting to the end of the available DVDs, season 11. I hope they continue to release more of the old Gunsmoke programs, please.

Regards,
Richard

Early TV and big screen Horse Operas often used a variety of authentic firearms in the making of the show.  The Root Revolving Rifle also appeared in a John Wayne film, "El Dorado".
