    The cool part is that this revolver is a faithful replica of the original design used in the movies. Well, almost faithful - the revolver seen in most of the scenes has a black powder frame. The not so cool part - the said movies were not so great to begin with (IMHO they were awful, but that is just me)... So, unless OP is a hardcore fan of The Expendables trilogy, I say skip it for reasons already stated by others above.

    IMG_3708.JPG These are SAA. Original and Ruger. If you want it, get it. Not for me.

    In that case…I hope you really enjoy it. :thumbup: :cool:

    Far be it from me to question anyone’s firearm desires. I am getting ready to overhaul a New Vaquero and installing white imitation pearl grips on it. :D

    I just don't get the "cool factor" so frequently referred to. Probably because I'm too much of a history buff. Heck, I have trouble watching Western movies anymore. If it makes the OP happy, more power to him. I still don't get it.

    My Wife bought it for me when we absolutely couldn't afford it for Christmas. Long ago, for $700.00 when $700.00 was a LOT of money.

    I ve seen lots of "slip hammer" good fast work in SASS but really no fanning . I did see fanning in the early 60s Western Fad , it was with wax blanks and was one shot usually. Sammy Davis Junior and Thell Reed were masters of it as well as others. I is extremely hard on the internals.

    7 bills is beyond my "cool factor" limit. If I could pick up this specimen for say 300 bucks, I might do it for the novelty, but if it's what the OP wants, I say go for it. I'm sure you can get them to cut you a deal. Bring CASH.

    Porting due to weight .. Im thinking with the small panel grips …16 oz ? I weighed it once ..
    I never had any incident of getting anything in my eyes of face ….
    But if I did .. any damage to my face would be a improvement :rofl:

    I didn’t buy it, they are missing the round thing on top of the hammer. That was a huge part of the story of the gun. And I’m not trying to look for parts in Italy

    The story on Internet Movie Firearms Database is that the revolver originally had a conventional hammer, but when Sylvester Stallone fanned it, it tore his hand up.
    So the armourer added rollers to the hammer to make it easier on him.

    As a replica of a movie prop, it might have had some curiosity value, if still complete "as seen in The Expendables".

    it’s missing the Rollers so Not Complete! I will pass… unless it’s a ridiculously low price later. Like $400

    @Mark_Mark

    Why don't you have a look at uberti website and see all of the models they offer. They have a great selection of more traditional SAA's....
    I think you might find one that suits you better than the expendables model.
    If you still want it after checking out the other models, then go for it.

    Here's my el patron for an appetizer.

    Here's my 3 Ubertis in 357. All were bought for under $500.

    [​IMG]

    And no I would not pay $700 for any Uberti. Much less that monstrosity.
