With the reins in his teeth, his Colt Single Action in his left hand, and twirling his Model 1892 in his right hand, Rooster takes on the whole Ned Pepper gang successfully.

38/44 Outdoorsman in excellent condition and at a most reasonable price. It left the gun shop with me along with my first single action Smith & Wesson, a Model #3 Russian dated 1874. The finish was mostly gone, but the barrel was in good shape and it locked up and functioned very well, certainly enough to allow it to be safely shot – with black powder loads only, of course. The mating of the top-break locking parts was a trifle loose, but my gunsmith Glen Kyser (now plying his excellent gunsmithing skills at Buckhorn Gun Shop) did a little welding and filing and it is now as tight as it was when it left the factory more than 125 years ago.
