A Faithful Reproduction of "Billy the Kid's" Colt Revolver
The name William Bonney might not ring a bell for most casual enthusiasts of the Wild West, but once you say "Billy the Kid," then all becomes clear. One of the most infamous gunfighters of the 19th century American West, Billy the Kid was known to have a particular kind of 1873 Colt Cattleman revolver, and Uberti now has a faithful replica of that exact gun in the form of its Bonney 1873 Single Action Cattleman New Model revolver.
Each "Billy the Kid" 1873 Colt Cattleman revolver features a blued-steel barrel, a case-hardened frame and a grip made from imitation buffalo horn. The gun is chambered in .45 Colt and features a 5.5-inch barrel. Altogether, this gun is as close as the modern day shooter can get to having the gun that Billy wore when he was killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett.
- Barrel length: 5.5 inches

- Weight: 2.3 pounds
- Cylinder capacity: 6 rounds
Outfitted with the classic Colt single-action hammer, the gun measures 11 inches in overall length, has a 6-round cylinder and weighs in at 2.3 pounds, unloaded.
