Smith & Wesson took a step closer to perfecting firearms with this 1869 “First Model American” Army revolver. It had a hinged frame that opened to reveal the end of the cylinder and an automatic ejection system for faster reloading of the newly developed metallic cartridges. The gun has a great association with the “Cowboy” era of the American West. This non-firing replica has the original’s “single action” mechanism and “top break” loading mechanism.
