Pat Garrett Framed Set
Billy the Kid Framed Set - #27-390
When Pat Garrett shot and killed Billy the Kid in 1881, he reportedly used a Single Action Cavalry Model revolver (7.5 inch barrel) like the model we used for this framed set. Our non-firing replica is mounted on spring-loaded bullet hangers that make it easy for you to take the gun off the plaque and test out the action. The back-loading cylinder spins, you can cock the hammer and pull the trigger. The deluxe nickel finish, 7.5" barrel and real wood grips give this replica a realistic and historic feel. Mounted on the frame is a miniature portrait of Pat Garrett taken shortly before the shooting, and a replica of the silver badge he wore as the Sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico Territory. A brass pistol identification plaque completes the set, with your choice of light or dark finished wood frame.
One of the pistols Jesse James used was a cavalry-style (7.5 inch barrel), like the replica in this framed set. Our replica is gun-metal grey finish with wood grips, and has working parts--spin the cylinder, cock the hammer and pull the trigger. The pistol is mounted on a pine frame in your choice of light or dark finish. A miniature wanted poster offering $25,000 reward for the capture of Jesse, and a brass identification plaque complete the set.
Jessie and his brother, Frank James, rode with the Confederate guerilla group, Quantrill's Raiders during the Civil War, and were accused of committing atrocities against Union soldiers. They rode with several different gangs after the war, committing bank stagecoach and train robberies. Famous even before his death, Jessie James became legendary after he was shot by Robert Ford in 1882. Often portrayed in mythic terms as a sort of Robin Hood figure fighting the powerful railroad for the downtrodden, the truth is that his robberies benefited nobody except himself and members of his gang.
#27-340 - Jessie James Framed Set
Wild Bill Hickok Framed Set
#27-335 -- This handsome framed set features a non-firing replica of an engraved 1851 Navy revolver that is based upon the famous ivory-handled pair he carried for many years. Test the working loading and firing mechanisms of this fine replica yourself--it's mounted with our spring-loaded bullet hangers which allow it to be easily removed from the frame. We've added a vintage photo of Wild Bill taken in 1873, and a U.S. Army hat pin to commemorate his service as a scout for the Union army during the Civil War. Hickok also served as a lawman in several Kansas cow towns. A brass identification plate completes this set, with your choice of light or dark wood frame.
Bat Masterson, 1879
Deputy Sheriffs Bat Masterson (left) and Wyatt Earp in Dodge City, 1876.
Bat Masterson was elected Sheriff of Ford County, Kansas (the Dodge City area) in 1877 and served until 1879. Masterson's brother, Ed, a City Marshal in Dodge City, was killed in the line of duty in April, 1879. He was shot by a cowboy named Jack Wagner, who didn't know that Ed's brother was nearby. As the mortally wounded Ed staggered away from Wagner, Bat Masterson opened fire on him from across the street. Wagner died the next day of his wounds.
Despite his fearsome reputation as a gunman, Masterson used his gun against other men on only six occasions, far less than Wild Bill Hickock and others of his contempo-raries.
After his term as Ford County Sheriff ended in 1879, Masterson roamed the towns of the West, making his living as a professional gambler for several years. He visited his old friend, Wyatt Earp, in Tombstone, Arizona Territory in 1882, leaving town shortly before the infamous Gun-fight at the OK Corral.
Several years later, when he was living in New York, Masterson was appointed a Deputy U.S. Marshall for the District of New York by President Teddy Roosevelt, and made $2,000 per year keeping peace in the Grand Jury room, when it was in session. He also worked as a Sports writer for the New York Daily Telegraph during the same time. He died at his newspaper desk of a heart attack in 1921, at the age of 67.

William Henry McCarty (1859-1881), AKA William H. Bonney -- better known as "Billy THE Kid"-- used a .45 single action revolver with a 4.75" barrel like this replica during his criminal career in New Mexico Territory. The action on our classic, non-firing replica works like the original--the hammer cocks, the cylinder rotates and the trigger pulls to drop the hammer. Antique gunmetal grey finish and real wood grips. A miniature wanted poster and a reproduction of the only known photograph of The Kid complete the set. Choice of light or dark finished wood plaque.
