Franklin Mint George S. Patton .45 Revolver
- Source: eBay UK
The George S. Patton commemorative single action .45 Revolver."Blood and Guts" is what they called the man who was perhaps the most flamboyant World War 2 general. One of his most prized possessions was a single action colt .45 renowned as a true cowboy gun. Re-created expressly for Franklin Mint is that very same revolver, the one Patton first used as a young West Point graduate along the Mexican border when he served under General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing. It was that very same revolver which is proudly held as head of the Third Army during the Second World War. The re-creation is a real beauty! A .45 calibre single action army revolver with all the intricate engravings of the original, faithfully recaptured. Each gun is hand-assembled and hand-finished bearing Patton's monogram and the eagle on the grips and each bears the serial number 332088. Exactly the same as the original. The revolver is displayed in its original wooden frame.
