Starr

Regarding the Starr revolver...Do the single action and double action both exchange cylinders exactly the same?

Does the Pietta reproduction (are they the only maker?) have markings all over it? (And why doesn't Pietta stop doing that-they read these forums don't they?)

Tell us more about your movie plans....
I own one 'complete' feature length 'western' screenplay, but it's pretty bad. It's based on a really good story (It's in the public domain, so I can't talk about it) It could be a great movie if I could find a screenwriter that's good at writing 'character driven' stories -that would want to work on it.

This spring/summer I plan on shooting some test footage of actors in wardrobe wearing guns/holsters just as a test or possibly/probably working on a film short.

I'd like to aquire a few replicas and have been looking for 'used/abused', but it seems like they hold their value to a point that 'new' makes the most sense. I'll probably end up buying some 'new' and hopefully can find some beat up/inoperable ones on the cheap.

Get some NON FIRING Replicas. They are less than a hundred bucks and they are for the most part accurate and look like the real thing.
