Favorite Revolver Design

Post by Murder by Death »

Following the candlestick poll ( viewtopic.php?t=4171 ), It's time for the next weapon. So which is your favorite "official" revolver design to play with?

I've only included unique design categories, which include all the variations of size and material. I've not included any non-English language variants here. If you prefer a specific token variation, please describe below (e.g. the Winning Moves LGE gold-tone pistol vs. the original 1949 edition).

Master Detective. I always thought of the revolver as an antique revolver, not a pistol-like gun (There goes half the options!).

As do I. It looks very deadly.

I was always a fan of the Cluedo 1965-96 Pistol/Revolver. It seems modern, yet elegant. Something I can see Mrs. White holding under a tea tray.

The 50th/PTM revolver always reminds me munitzer's blueprint mysteries.

I was always a fan of the "pepperbox" style revolvers - a la Master Detective and Clue 1972-present.

In reality, the pepperbox guns were somewhat clumsy and dangerous to the shooter. They had a tendency to jam and explode. Samuel Colt used to keep an exploded pepperbox revolver (made by one of his competitors) mounted on his desk.

Haha ... That would make a good twist in a Clue movie ... The killer gets his, while trying to murder Boddy, then another guest runs in, and taking advantage of the situation suddenly kills a surprised Boddy making it look like the like the dead guy did it but himself died as the gun exploded!
