What pistol is it?
« on: April 29, 2015, 10:07:35 AM »
Hi, at the end of the movie Quigley Down Under the ticket agent at the shipping dock pulled out a single shot percussion pistol as he checked a wanted poster for Quigley.

Does anyone know who was the manufacturer of that pistol and the model?

Regards,
Richard

Hi sltm1, thank you. Since you identified the Pistol, i found a reference, Hoppes Model 300 Ethan Allan boot pistol, see:
