I noticed that Pietta lists/shows a nickel Spiller and Burr on their website.
They actually say "3 models" of it...so, do you think there is a chance that one of them might be a steel framed one?

I did have to email them to see. I'd love one in steel. :D They are shoot'n little son's of guns. I wish cylinders weren't so expensive.

I would bet they are BRASS, as the originals.

A steel-framed Spiller & Burr is a Whitney.
The Whitney .36 repro has been available in the past, mostly as a kit. Not too many of them around, though. I've owned two, one I built from a Dixie Gun Works kit and the other already put together.

I just got an email back from Allesandro.

He stated that these are the nickel ones that are plated, and no one currently imports them. Also he said

and we are not yet ready with the Whitney model


So...maybe the Whitney is in the works? :)
