Rango is an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff.
Our new sheriff has been playing the hero for so long, he's actually starting to believe it.
As mentioned, Rango's pistol looks intentionally like the Colt Peacemaker; whose action is advanced, (cylinder rotated), by pulling back the hammer. Colt Peacemaker cylinders are rotated by cocking the hammer; loading cartridges and removing fired brass are by opening a loading gate on the right side. A Peacemaker's cylinder is never swung out to one side, as Rattlesnake Jake opened the cylinder to dump five shells out; leaving one shell in the cylinder. Colt Peacemakers simple mechanisms allow that classic Peacemaker single action look. Double action revolvers, i.e. where pulling the trigger cocks the hammer and advances the cylinder, prevents double action revolvers from ever having clean Peacemaker lines. It appears the pistol as used is some amalgam of 20th century double action revolvers, stuffed into Peacemaker looks; an anachronism.
