Thanks for clarification Scorch. It would be nice to own a peacemaker made and used back in the day but I'm sure they're either collectors pieces no one in their right minds would actually shoot, or they're too deteriorated to be useful anymore. Still, i'm happy with the clone, copy or lookalike that mine is. It's the prettiest gun I own and certainly has some power behind it.
And thank you to Bob Wright on the old/new model comparisons.
