Pretty much what MJN77 said.

The Uberti L&Rs can be found with the correct blank cylinder. They seem to alternate making roll engraved and blank cylinder models. My newest one - from 2007 - has a blank cylinder. Pietta also made a Leech and Rigdon for Navy Arms with blank cylinder. The Uberti & Pietta blank cylinder models turn up on GA, GB, and AA from time to time.

Then there is the illusive Schneider and Glassick. It was brass framed .36 with octagonal barrel & blank cylinder. A number of replica makers have sold these over the years. EMF and Dixie still list the Pietta version with the roll engraved cylinder.

He's been toting it the entire series. There is a plethora of non-historically correct weaponry used in HOW.
