An exact replica of a special revolver that was made by Colt for John Wayne. It is exact in every detail. The body is nickel plated and extensively engraved with gold plating, and bears the same serial number of the real revolver, 151284. John Wayne's signature is engraved on the grip strap. The grips have a slight stained appearance and this is to replicate Duke's real grips that he soaked in tea to create the stained look. It is not designed to load bullets or fire them but the hammer, trigger and chamber all work. The chamber can be removed as well.
