There is an auction coming up in 2 days that has a Elvis Presley Colt 45 (No. 45 of 300).
I have checked about everywhere, but I cannot find anything on this run of revolvers.
Does anyone know who made this model? Who put this model out?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

It may not have been a run of revolvers, it may have been a run of bottom feeders.

Here is an ended auction to one on GB.

And another.

It is amazing, a guy trying to sell a 3000 dollar gun and he can't put up a single decent picture of the thing. I have seen better photographed 50 dollar Ravens than this one.


Lookey here, the google-fu is strong in this one tonight!

Bob
Thanks for the reply.
The one that is selling is a cowboy gun. It comes with the same type of box, but it is, I believe, in 45 long colt.
I wish that it was the ACP model, those are really nice.(Colt)
Just found the cowboy model on the site you posted.

I agree with the pictures on the one listing, that is terrible.
It looks as though the auto is sold out. The cowboy gun is still available.(Uberti)
Not sure if I want to bid on the one at the auction or not.

Elvis looks pretty popular, he had the Colt 45 bottom feeder, a Uberti cowboy gun and I also saw a S&W .357 TCB edition.

That site has more tribute guns than you can shake a stick at!

It sure does.
I book marked it for future reference. Some very different guns on that site.
Thanks again Bob.

Remember the old saying: "The two happiest days in a boat owners life: The day he bought the boat, and the day he finally sold it".
