1873 SAA 'Cavalry' style, black and simulated ivory. #22-1109B.
1873 SAA Revolver, Black/Ivory Cavalry Style
- This longer version of the SAA .45 was called 'Cavalry style' because it was preferred by Cavalry troopers and officers for its 7.5" barrel, which provided superior accuracy and distance of fire compared to the short-barreled 'fast-draw' models. This beautiful non-firing replica is a superb example of the gunmaker's art, in black with checkered, simulated ivory American Eagle grips. Like all our SAA replicas, this one has a functional lock mechanism, revolving cylinder and working ejector system, and can be loaded with replica ammo. The cylinders are bored to a non-standard size for safety, and real .45 cartridges will not fit in the chambers.
