HERE'S A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A FIREARM THAT
BELONGED TO TWO FAMOUS AMERICAN FIREARMS
This Colt Second Generation Single Action Army revolver once belonged to world famous entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. and was gifted to by Sammy to Bob Munden, world-renowned exhibition shooter and "Fastest Man with a Gun Who Ever Lived." This gift was given following Bob & Sammy's appearance on the Mike Douglas TV show. The two were appearing together and were demonstrating their fast-draw techniques. Sammy, who according to Bob, was the 2nd fastest draw in Hollywood (behind Jerry Lewis) had a few mis-fires with this gun. Bob offered to repair it for Sammy and make it better than new. Sammy, being a generous sort, told Bob to keep the revolver as a personal gift.
The revolver was originally manufactured in 1958 and was shipped to Early & Modern Firearms, Ventura Blvd, Studio City, California. It wears a 7-1/2" barrel and chambers the .45 Colt cartridge. The finish is factory original with wear put on it by Sammy. The hammer checkering has been removed to assist in quick shots. Perhaps the neatest physical attitribute are the grips. The right grip has the name "Sammy" spelled out in handmade beads (some of the beads are missing but the marking is easily legible). The left grip has finger grooves cut into it, made specially to fit Sammy's small hand (Sammy was not a big guy). The cylinder is marked "45" on the side and back, perhaps by a studio, as this revolver was used by Sammy in several TV and Film appearances (here's a great link: Sammy Davis, Jr. six-gun demonstration). Bob was honored to receive the gift and made good on his word, making this revolver better than new. He gave it one of his famous slick action jobs, transforming it into a durable & superior fast-draw six-gun. Here's a video showing just how incredibly quick Bob is: Bob Munden SUPER-Fast Draw!
This revolver comes with a hand-made display case with descriptive plaque and picture of Sammy and Chuck Connors in a Western scene. It also comes with the holster that Sammy was using that day on the Mike Douglas show. The holster comes with the loops filled with Winchester/Stembridge 5-in-1 blank cartridges as used on the show and the Hollywood sets. Complete documentation comes with this revolver and includes a written testamonial by Bob Munden himself as well as a photo showing Bob holding the gun.
What a great piece of Americana! This kind of item does not come along often. If you're a fan of the old "Rat Pack" or a fast-draw devotee, you simply cannot find a more unique Colt than this! I am honored to be selling this item for Bob Munden.
