Video - The Great Western 2 Revolver

This is just a short video about E.M.F.'s Great Western 2 revolver, which is one of my main match pistols.

This video really illustrates why I'm a bottom of the pack CAS shooter.

Good video as usual Mike

I have been toying with the idea of loading BP cartridges.

You are no help in keeping my budget intact

Rookie Question

Another great video, Mike!

As a rookie who is somewhat interested in a Colt 1873 revolver, could you advise on a current production Colt copy? Specifically, I'm would like a 7.5" barrel in .45LC. I like the idea of a black powder frame, but it's not essential. You mentioned that the E.M.F. Great Western II was the about the best of the Colt clones from Italy and is made by Pietta. Is that still the case? Could you suggest a good vendor to look for one?

Thanks for your excellent videos and your advice!

Mark

Mark,

I still recommend E.M.F.'s Great Western II, but I don't think Pietta offers a B-P framed model. For a B-P frame I'd recommend a Cimarron Model P.

Mike, thanks for the advice.

I wouldn't be looking for a Colt clone, were it not for your fine videos!

B-P framed?

Help me out here - I don't see the difference between the Model P and GW2 frames.

You have to check out Cimarron's "old Model" frames...no crossbolts. The base pin is retained by a screw in the frame.

Cimarron carries them by both Uberti, in their Model P line (Model P Old Frame) and by Pietta http://cimarron-firearms.com/Pietta/...FrontierOM.htm

Pietta makes the GW II for E.M.F.
