1847 COLT WALKER
This big, powerful .44 caliber black powder revolver is the famous magnum developed with the help of Captain Samuel Walker of the United States Mounted Rifles. It saw extensive service in the Mexican War. The largest of all Colt revolvers and authentically reproduced, it weights a mighty 4 pounds, 8 ounces, has an overall length of 15-3/4 inches, with a 9-inch precision rifled barrel. This is a six-shot revolver with handsomely engraved cylinder and barrel marked "U.S. 1847." In this day of modern handguns, this is still one of the most powerful revolvers ever made.
The Mexican War was the reason which led again to arms manufacture by Colt after the financial setback which followed the company's first production of Paterson revolvers. Urged by a Government request for one thousand pieces and following Captain Samuel Walker's advice, Colt patented this weapon, the biggest handgun ever made. The gun was then bound to arm some of the Texas Rangers who engaged in the Mexican War. Lt. Col. George A. Caldwell later said, "Two years' experience in Mexico enables me to speak with confidence of the value of Colt's revolvers. Those who had them there could not by induced to part with them at any price.

1848 SECOND MODEL DRAGOON
The famous 1848 Colt Dragoon Revolver models evolved from the 1847 Colt Walker Black Powder Revolver, and were produced from 1848 to 1863. Shorter than the Walker, the Dragoon was more reliable and efficient. The 2nd Model Dragoon differs from the 1st Model in the cylinder bolt slot, which is square in section instead of oval.

DELUXE CLEANING KIT
These kits contain a solid brass rod that is 7.25 inches long with a large, comfortable T handle that's easy to grip. The kit also includes a wool swab and a brass bore brush. There are two jags, one is slotted and the other is the old traditional style that looks like the end of your Enfield ram rod. All these attachments screw right into the brass cleaning rod. And if that's not enough this kit comes with 25 micro fiber cleaning patches, a bottle of solvent for removing tuff powder residue and a bottle of "Outers" special formula gun oil. All of which fit neatly into the factory storage container. That's a lot of great gun cleaning gear but what I like best is the price.

1861 COLT NAVY
The 1861 Colt Navy Revolver is a streamlined version of the older 1851 Colt Navy revolver, and is one of the most attractive and perhaps the finest of all Colt black powder percussion handguns ever made. It was one of the last military style percussion revolvers and is an excellent gun in all respects.
A total of 38,853 of these fine revolvers were produced in Colt's Hartford, Connecticut factory between 1861 and 1873. Of these, an estimated 4,000 were sold to the U.S. Government, including 650 to the U.S. Navy. This weapon was also purchased by U.S. states and by individuals, and saw extensive use during the Civil War.
EMF's authentic reproduction is made to the highest standards by Pietta. It features a case hardened steel frame, steel Back strap and trigger guard, and a blued 8" steel barrel. The stock is walnut and makes provision for a shoulder stock. This gun will give years of enjoyment to the shooter and collector. At only $269.95 it represents a superior value.

1858 REMINGTON ARMY
The 1858 Army Remington Revolver was the only black powder firearm to offer a challenge to the dominant Colt revolvers. With a long 8" barrel, it was considered by many to be every bit the gun a Colt was, and then some. It is said that soldiers of the Civil War would trade a handful of Colts for one Remington Army revolver. After the war, the Remington outsold the Colts as a surplus weapon because the soldiers had seen how the two guns stood up side by side in combat use.
The 1858 Remington Revolver has a strong solid frame that stands up to the abuse better than the open-top design of the Colt. A note from William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody on Exhibit at the NRA National Firearms Museum reads, "This old Remington Revolver I carried and used for many years in Indian Wars and buffalo killing. And it never failed me."
EMF Company's authentic reproductions of the 1858 Remington Revolver are available with a brass frame or case hardened steel frame. All parts are machined to exacting specifications.
