The Colt Paterson used in the television show has many inconsistencies made for the sake of storytelling. While the 1835 Colt Paterson was designed to fire musket balls, the show portrays it taking modern day cartridges.
To let you choose your own prop, we have included two cylinders – one that accepts the modern numbered cartridges and one that would be correct for firing musket balls. Additionally, you have two choices for hammers, one that would work on modern rounds and one that would be accurate for black powder balls.
PLEASE NOTE THAT UNLESS OTHERWISE SELECTED YOU WILL RECEIVE AN UNPAINTED PROP. Everything will be printed in BLACK PLA except for the receiver, which will be BLACK PETG. It will come with a BROWN PLA handle. If you choose the “Painted” option, we will add a chrome-like paint finish to the main portions of the replica and a muted copper to the cylinders, which gives it a classic western look. We do not do intricate pattern designs as seen on some western revolvers.
Due to the manufacturing process and limitations with FDM printers, faint layer lines may be visible. This can be easily remedied by sanding or by using a thick clear coat before priming. These are perfect for costuming, but you shouldn’t go around hitting things with it. Seriously, don’t hit someone with it. They made a rubber version for all the pistol whipping (which is in general a terrible thing to do to a gun in the first place), and this isn’t rubber.
