Colt 1855 Sidehammer Revolving 10 Gauge Shotgun "Pistol"
« on: October 18, 2019, 11:48:51 AM »
I posted this here as a comparison to the Walker and Dragoon Pistols. It makes them look miniscule in comparison. Still time to bid on it: only one bid @ $3750!

Final price was $4612.50 including buyers premium. I find this piece very interesting. I could see a TV Western hero or villain carrying one.

People didn't carry Walkers or Dragoons back then without a horse to tote it. Sounds like something Tarantino thought up.

Well, hes a handsome SOB, for sure.  A little less of that 11-5/8" barrel may not hurt. The price seems low for such a thing, 

Yes Sir,  that's a horse pistol. You'd get a herny luggin that around on foot.
