Real Texas Shootout Colt 45 1896.
Butt of grips marked: Wm. Price, with an "X" opposite his name.
He was better known as "TUBBY PRICE. The "X" standing for the man he shot with this Colt. Documented!
Colt SAA .45 today, Serial No. 16757X, is in a pleasing state of a dark patina. There are glimmers of the once blue finish
in protected areas, but it is a patina Colt. The hard rubber grips show extensive hand wear, and the checkering has softened.
Mechanically, it is a PERFECT revolver. It cocks, locks, indexes, each and every time the hammer is drawn to the rear. It
is a genuine south east Texas Colt, and was definitely fired in anger, to resolve a dispute. It appears in the archival information,
one William Price, known as "Tubby" Price, warned a neighbor to stay away from his Levee , holding water. The letter
states it so simply, "he said he would shoot him, and he did" He shot him in the leg, which was followed by the
ensuing investigation etc.. In the original documents, there is a photograph of Tubby, in later years, when he entered a "Whisker"
growing contest. A colorful Texas Colt. PRICE 7,500. This is a piece of the true frontier history. This firearm is housed
in our Secial Collections and not in the store. It can be viewed BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call to set up a viewing. 918-895-4220
1882 Colt 45 cal: This is a true "PeaceMaker" in the fact as
We have documented family letter stating
this gun was given to Father Frank Smereke
in Marfa Texas in a confessional. Judging by
the 4 notches carved into the barrel one can only imagine
what this confession was all about.
