posted on March 19, 2023

This week, we’re taking a closer look at the Davidson’s Pietta 1873 Great Western II. A classic single-action revolver, the Great Western II is a throwback to the best of the guns of the cowboy era. With wide-blade front sight and a barrel-to-cylinder gap that enables it to fire black-powder cartridges, this is an excellent pistol whether you're checking fence lines, or shooting a period-correct cowboy-action comp. For more information on this stalwart six-gun, check out the video embedded above, hosted by Editor in Chief Scott Olmsted and Digital Associate Editor David Herman. MSRP: $550-700
