Now with more than 30 models in six calibers, the Pietta 1873 Single-Action Army Series has something for everyone.

What the 1873 Single-Action Army Series offers:

  • Available in 45 Long Colt, .357 Magnum, .44/40 Winchester, .44 Magnum, .22 WMR and .22 LR.
  • Barrel length varies from 4 3/4 to 16 1/2 inches.
  • Finishes include nickel plated, color case hardened and blued steel.
  • Laser engraving unique to that model.

No firearms collection is complete without at least one Single-Action Army revolver. Sure, the design is archaic compared to today’s polymer semi-automatics. Yet, few other firearms stir the imagination to the same lengths as these historic six-shooters and their modern-day replicas. Luckily, the market is growing for these classics, with Pietta Firearms recent announcement of the expansion of its 1873 SA series. In all, the line now boasts more than 30 configurations of the Single-Action Army revolver, available in six chamberings, including .45 Long Colt, .357 Magnum, .44/40 Winchester, .44 Magnum, .22 WMR and .22 LR. The company didn’t list MSRPs for the models, but they can be found retailing from the mid-$300 on up online.
