That revolver was originally a prototype Colt Walker, a single action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six charges of black powder behind six bullets (typically .44 caliber lead balls). It was designed in 1846 as a collaboration between Captain Samuel Hamilton Walker and American firearms inventor Samuel Colt (Colt Bradford’s ancestor).  Somehow, it was transported to the Shadow, where it was infused with spiritual Essence and transformed into a modern Colt Anaconda revolver.  Colt found it (with Oscar’s help) during his stay in the Shadow when becoming Purified, a story I hope to show one day.

Meanwhile, what is Rufus up to?!
