The jury is still out on whether Wyatt Earp ever carried a long-barreled Colt, but if he did it probably didn't look much like this. Still, while there were a lot of Wyatt Earp cap guns, this is the only one I know of that actually says BUNTLINE SPECIAL on it, which makes it pretty cool. This piece, dating from the late '50s, measures almost 11 inches long, and more than 6 inches of it is barrel.
Aside from the length and the engraving, this looks pretty much like any other Actoy (or Pony Boy) gun, right down to the lanyard ring. We'll see a couple more of them before I deplete my arsenal.
