Fort Smith is an American Frontier town--arguably THE American Frontier Town. Fort Smith has one foot in the Old South while the other is standing firmly in The Wild West. And now’s your chance to own a brand new piece of Fort Smith history: The Fort Smith Bicentennial Airgun.
The Colt Peacemaker
-Thursday, February 9, 2017
Growing up watching Bonanza, Gun Smoke, Big Valley and John Wayne movies, I’ve had a fascination with the six shooters and lever action rifles. Decades ago airgun manufacturers designed and sold Cowboy style replica air pistols. Over time these models faded away when Westerns became less popular.
Remember the Lone Ranger? Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, and look at one of the newest CO2-powered BB guns offered by Umarex USA, under license from Colt. This is the Colt Peacemaker .177, an incredibly accurately detailed (and fun!) reproduction of a Colt Peacemaker Model from the late 1800s. This is, without a doubt, the most accurate Peacemaker reproduction I’ve ever seen in a BB gun. It looks, feels and acts real.
In 1955 Colt re-introduced its famous 1873 Single Action Army revolver. It was a welcomed reprise of “The Gun That Won The West” and Colt has never looked back, still manufacturing the legendary Peacemaker since 1873 – with a brief hiatus caused by the demands of WWII that kept the Single Action out of the lineup until 1955.
