Gun Play: Gene Autry .44

There were several models of Gene Autry cap guns, and there may be one or two I'm not familiar with. But this Leslie-Henry .44 is hands-down the best Autry gun I've ever seen. It's 11 inches of finely detailed pot metal, with a revolving cylinder, pop-down cap-loading plate and unique horse head plastic grips. Seems to me I coughed up $125 for this one, the most I ever paid for a cap gun, and that was 15 years ago. Once I wrapped my paw around it, I couldn't let go.
