There’s a lot of history in EMF’s Californian 45LC pistol many people don’t know about.  Early & Modern Firearms Company has been serving the shooting community with colt “period” replicas, Western Frontier, Civil War and World War period firearms for over sixty years.  With investment help from Pietta in late 1980, EMF and Pietta forged a strong union that allowed EMF to continue marketing some of the best period firearms in the world.

The 1873 Great Western II “Californian” is one of the many finely crafted period pieces.  This handgun features a hammer-forged steel barrel and frame that is drop forged and CNC router machined. Also, the GW II has wider rear and larger front sights for faster sight acquisition of the target.

  • Action: Revolver Single Action
  • Caliber/Gauge: 45 LC
  • Capacity: 6 Rounds
  • Barrel Length: 5.5”
  • Barrel Description: Blued
  • Trigger: Standard
  • Grips: Walnut

Like the original 1873 GWII, this “period accurate” revolver has a floating firing pin in the hammer and a simply gorgeous casehardened frame.  Produced with wood grips, just as it was first made back in 1873, this throwback from the Wild West is a powerful 45 caliber testament to the art of gun manufacturers in the late 19th century.

What makes this revolver such a true collectable is the care and dedication EMF and Pietta’s have taken to recreate the GWII using modern technology.  Pietta has not only manufactured a functional firearm but recreated a nostalgic piece of firearm history.

A must have for any collector the Great western II “California” is a beautifully rustic, but also powerful addition to any collector or avid gun enthusiast.
