1875 No. 3, 2nd Model Top-Break
If one man alone could typify the gunslinging outlaw, this man would have to be John Wesley Hardin. His career as a skilled gunfighter started in his teens and spanned the entire period between the 1860s and his death in the mid-1890s. This revolver follows the lines of his S&W top-break with which he prevailed in a shootout against Deputy Webb in Comanche, TX in the 1870s. Hardin is blued steel, case-hardened, with a simulated Buffalo-horn grip.
