THIS IS IT!  THe famouis "Smokey Ruins" Gun!(without ejector rod!!!!)   Blondy and Josey must have hooked up along the way and Blondy showed Josey how to modify the gun even more by adding the ejector rod! ;D

The "Smokey Ruins" gun is infact a conversion (Or a cap and ball not all the way assembled... ??? :o)  By you can clearly see the loading gate above Clint's right hand behind the cylinder...  

To bad that company wouldn't sell something legit like this one... :D

You can see the ejector rod on the gun but early model conversions didn't have such advance features such as the peacemaker '73...

Early conversions didn't have an ejector rod... :P
(I should add some didn't...)

Damn! Sorry to have been gone again and missed a great firearms discussion here.  :(

I must agree with ALL who asserted that Clint never used a Remington revolver in JOSEY WALES.

The pistols in almost all the images from the film that everyone has posted here are of Colt Army models, with the notable exception of one Colt Navy (the "left hand" gun in the Gatling gun scene).  :(

Thank you!Yes it is a nice collectible.Any idea what it might fetch at an auction?Should I let an auction house take care of  selling it (should I decide to sell) ?

My Colt Walker is now for sale( see above).In e-mail correspondence with Mr.Phil Schreier,Senior Curator of the NRA Museum,he states that this solid rubber prop was indeed used in "Josey Wales".He estimated the value to be  around $800.00-1000.00. Offers will be responded to within 24 hrs.
