I've seen the post with the guns - make and model - that Eastwood's used but what i can't find is a reputable place to purchase a replica.  Help anyone?

Also, the cowboy hats.  I know nothing about cowboy hats;  zero, zilch, nada.  Anyone got some thoughts of the ones Eastwood wears?

Uberti by far has the best replicas of the old west type guns.

You can find a listing of replicas and dealers on their homepage here:

Well, the hat that Clint wears in the TGTBU, FFD, and FAFDM is mainly a Stetson hat...

I have seen a website selling an exact replica of it [that AND the poncho].. but man, it was way overpriced...if I bought it, I may as well buy that Ferrari I've always wanted.. or maybe that mansion in Maimi... or even my own golf course too....Hmm....

I don't know about hats worn in particular movies, but Backstage Creations had him wearing Stetsons at the SAG Awards rehearsal in 2003.

As for replicas Uberti makes some of the best.  I also recomend them.  They are reliable and not to expensive.

Here is a website that has the hat Clint wore in a Fist Full of Dollars. The hats look great, but they are expensive. Hope this helps. http://baronhats.com/noname.htm#Hat

Not sure about the hats, but the guns Clint and Tuco used in TGTBATG were Colt 1851 Navy Models.
Uberti makes very nice copies of them. Also, the guns were modified. During the Civil War revolvers were all blackpowder muzzleloaders. The guns Clint and Tuco used were modified with different cylinders that take
regular modern cartridge cases. This was a popular modification after the Civil War before the 1873 Colt Single Action Army arrived on the scene. There are at least two compaines that currently make kits to modify the 1851 Navy to fire .38 Short Colt cartridges. That would be the caliber that Clint and Tuco used.
The frame on the 1851 Navy wasn't strong enough to handle a .45 Colt conversion. Clint liked using these old style revolvers and used them in later movies too.

Here's a picture of the revolvers:
