STI Texican

Notes: For some time, the Texican was thought to be the firearms equivalent of vaporware, but in 2008, it was finally introduced to the market. The Texican is a high-quality replica of an Old West-type single-action revolver (of no particular make or model), with a color-case hardened finish on its chrome-moly steel frame; the Texican is built completely out of forgings out of bar stock, and tolerances are very tight -- at the micron level at some points. The grip is polymer, but designed to look like checkered black-charred wood. The 5.5-inch barrel is of Chrome-Moly 4140 steel, designed specifically for the Texican by Green Mountain Barrels. The Texican was designed with SASS (Single-Action Shooting Society) competition in mind, and is therefore at home firing both blackpowder and modern propellant cartridges. The Texican is loaded old-style, through a loading gate instead of a swing-out cylinder.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The Texican is not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Thunder Five

Notes: This is a large-caliber revolver designed to fire rifle and shotgun shells. As such, the cylinder is huge, and the revolver itself is very large, though the barrel is very short. The Thunder Five may fire all of the cartridges listed; separate revolvers are not made for each caliber.

US Fire Arms Buntline Special

Notes: Revolvers such as the original Buntline Special were somewhat common, with some 28,000 being built. The US Firearms version is a close copy of that revolver, complete with the massive barrel of up to 18 inches, and is meticulously faithful to the original, the primary differences being manufacturing methods. The Buntline Special has a nickel-plated wire-frame detachable stock to convert it into a sort of carbine. (It should be noted that by US law, the shoulder stock cannot be attached to a Buntline Special with a barrel of less than 16 inches; however, the stock will fit on Buntline Specials with shorter barrels.) The rear sight is a flip-up type, and the front sight is made from nickel silver and is of the blade type. The revolver has a vent hole on the top strap, designed on the original Buntline Special to avoid the spraying of lead fragments, powder, and gas from the cylinder gap. (It isnít particularly effective in that respect, but it was included on the US Firearms version for authenticity.)

Twilight 2000 Notes: These revolvers do not exist.

US Fire Arms Frontier Six Shooter

Notes: This is sort of a general replica of various revolvers of this type found on the western frontiers of the US in the 1880s. It uses the so-called "Blackpowder frame," which is actually more a method of securing the cylinder to the frame instead of what sort of propellant may be used in the revolver. The blackpowder frame is, however, more authentic in replica terms. It is also a single-action weapon for the same reason. The sights are a copy of the simple sights of the period, with a trough-type rear sight on the top strap and a simple, slim blade on the front. The metalwork of the revolver has a case-hardened finish (though it is not actually case-hardened, being manufactured with more modern methods). The ejector rod is of the "bullseye" type, short and thick, almost a button. However, the Frontier Six Shooter is designed with modern-scale tolerances and has hard rubber grips. It is fairly heavy, and this mitigates barrel climb somewhat.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This revolver does not exist.

US Fire Arms Pre-War 1873 Colt

Notes: This is a modern replica of the short-barreled 1873 Colt revolver. It was originally made for use by the actor Val Kilmer, playing Doc Holliday in the 1993 movie Tombstone. The revolver is nickel-plated with a high-polish and has faux ivory grips. The revolver is meticulously put together, with virtually no play in the components. It is available in a plethora of calibers, mostly modern equivalents of Old West cartridges.

Twilight 2000 Story: Iím not sure if this revolver would exist in the Twilight 2000 World; if it does, it is extremely rare. Tombstone was made in 1993; it would be one of the last movies made before the war if it got made at all.

Walker Dragoon

Notes: The Texas Ranger captain Samuel H. Walker and Samuel Colt, originator of the Colt Firearms company, designed the Walker Dragoon. The Dragoon was one of the most powerful handguns of its time. The Dragoon was a large weapon at nearly 5 pounds, with a barrel length of 9 inches and an overall length of 16 inches. Despite its size the Dragoon turned out to be well liked by the troops and served throughout the Mexican War. A detachable stock can be added to the Walker Dragoon to create a light carbine. As with almost all such weapons, most of them in 2003 are modern replicas.
