Brief Info on the Bunt Line Special
These revolvers are part of the American Frontier folklore
The Colt Single Action Army Buntline is one of the most impressive and recognizable firearms of the Old West. Named for the famous dime-store novelist Ned Buntline, legend has it that he ordered five Buntlines as gifts to Dodge City lawmen Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp, Charlie Bassett, Neal Brown and Bill Tilghman
Although often referred to as a "six shooter," the Wyatt Earp Buntline is actually a Peacemaker in that it is meant to carry five rounds with the hammer down on an empty chamber.
There is no transfer bar system, the firing pin is mounted in the hammer, the gun must be placed on half cock to load and unload, and the cylinder chambers do line up with the extractor rod.
When you pull the hammer back slowly to full cock, you will hear the distinct four clicks that, according to old legends, represent the letters in the word "C-O-L-T."

Colt SAA revolvers have been produced as Single Action Army and Buntline models . . . standard models have a round top frame . . . barrel lengths are 4 3/4, 5 1/2, and 7 1/2 inches. The Buntline model came with a 12 inch barrel but was otherwise similar to the regular SAA.
The SAA uses a hammer mounted firing pin, and a loading gate in the left side of the frame gives access for loading and unloading. The steel ejector rod housing is located on the lower right side of the barrel, aligned with the loading gate.
The fluted cylinder is easily removed for cleaning . . . and can be removed from the right side of the frame.
To eject fired cases from a Colt single action revolver, the hammer is put in its half-cock position . . . the cylinder is manually rotated . . . so that a stroke of the spring loaded ejector rod can knock out the case. Loading is likewise accomplished one chamber at a time
