Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #133...

M1877 "Lightning" from Colt. The mug is from
Colt 1877 "Lightning" .38 Long Colt double-action revolver, made in 1882. It's a basket case, but was too cheap to pass up. This is a "shopkeeper's model", with a 3.5" barrel sans any ejector rod assembly. I might make a quixotic attempt at getting it restored, or at least mechanically functional, but even if I don't, it'd be fun to fiddle with while watching Young Guns or Tombstone. After all, it was made the same year Jesse James was killed.
