Trivia

The "Buntline Special" Colt Peacemaker carried by Jim, one of the two outlaws who jump Roscoe in the woods, is, according to legend, a period firearm produced by Colt after Ned Buntline, popular dime-store novelist of the day, placed a request for five Peacemakers with twelve inch (standard length was 7.5-inch) barrels to give to the lawmen of Dodge City, Kansas (including Wyatt Earp and William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson) in recognition of their service to that town. Little, if any, evidence survives to support this story. However, Colt, as with other leading gun makers at the time, did produce both longer and shorter barreled models of its popular pistols. This includes known nineteenth century factory-model Peacemakers available in three inch, four inch, 5.5 inch, 7.5 inch, twelve inch, and sixteen inch barrel lengths. The popularity of both Buntline's novels, and the story of his infamous gift to Earp, Masterson, and others, led any long-barreled Peacemaker to be referred to as a "Buntline Special". However, the question of whether the accuracy of such a long barrel would be worth the slower draw time for a gunfighter or lawman is the subject of much speculation.
