A few years ago, while looking through some old papers in the Colt files an employee found a special order for a Colt .45 "peacemaker" with a 4-3/4" barrel and nickel finish. The order was from Bat Masterson and written on stationery from the Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City. A lot of the old six-shooters were special orders and Uberti has recreated some special order 1873 Cattleman that would have been right at home in any Kansas rail-head in the Old West.
