Weapon type[edit]

I'm not a hundred percent certain, but that revolver looks to me like an old Wild Western-style .45 Magnum Colt Single-Action Army (aka Colt Peacemaker), or perhaps maybe a .357 Magnum Colt Python Revolver or a lastly, a Smith & Wesson Model 686. I did as much research as I could based upon the appearance of the weapon, though I wish I/we had a little more data to go on. Click the links, look at the image, compare them side-by-side, and you decide. My personal opinion, it's probably one of the latter two than the initial. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 13:40, 23 April 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330

Maybe someone can ask Schlerf on twitter what it's supposed to be. We don't want another Uzi mystery.Sith-venator Wavingstrider Fett helmet.jpg (Commlink) 13:56, 23 April 2014 (EDT)
Thanks for that. I just did. No idea when to expect a reply, but hopefully it'll be soon. We need a weapons expert more qualified than myself to try to identify this revolver. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 14:10, 23 April 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330
I like to think of myself as a Gun Guru, but revolvers and pump-action shotguns look so similar to me. If Schlerf doesn't reply we could always ask the opinion of someone from this amazing place.Sith-venator Wavingstrider Fett helmet.jpg (Commlink) 14:13, 23 April 2014 (EDT)
I like that place too. I visit it frequently to look up action and war films to find what weapons were used. And I too also like to consider myself a "Gun Guru" (Weapons Expert sounds better personally), as I have spent a large part of my life studying modern weapons throughout the history of warfare. But I'm kind of at a loss for what this weapon is. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 15:40, 23 April 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330
I'm not confident enough in my old western gun knowledge past "Single Action Army or similar" for this either. I'll go ask on IMFDB (I'm also there often), but before I do, is the main picture the only shot of it in the comic, or are there others, even tiny or not well seen? More detail and angles are always better. Alex T Snow (talk) 01:10, 24 April 2014 (EDT)
I have to throw out here one more possibility: that the weapon pictured is probably a .44 Magnum Colt Anaconda. Probably. Still waiting for some more second opinions for other weapon experts. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 17:43, 25 April 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330
