  • The above answer isn't 100% clear, does this pistol have the transfer bar safety or is it true to the original design with fixed firing pin on the hammer? Do these now have the rebounding firing pin or strictly fixed? Are these full sized or are the grips smaller?

  • Hi David, The firing pin is mounted to the hammer which has a lightly checked spur for improved cocking. As a single-action revolver, the hammer must be fully cocked for each shot fired. It should be noted here that the hammer has three positions, each of which is accompanied by a distinctive “click” as the hammer moves through its arch of travel. The first click is the safe position. Thanks to a modern hammer safety, not found on the original 1873 model, the Cattleman revolvers can be carried with all six chambers loaded when the hammer is in this first position. The second click frees the cylinder to rotate clockwise for loading. The third click is fully cocked. With the hammer in this position the revolver is ready to fire. The grips are "slightly narrower".
