Great Western II "Alchimista"
The EMF Great Western II is made by Pietta's Italian craftsmen in Brescia, a region famous for making guns since before the Revolutionary War. Alessandro Pietta, SASS Life #41531 took a page out of history books and reintroduced the 1873, paired with the 1860 Army grip frame. He added a competition trigger that is wider and set back, allowing for a larger finger in the trigger guard. When you first pick up the "Alchimista", your initial reaction is, "WOW! What a nice feel!" The 1860 grip is longer and slimmer than the traditional 1873 Single Action Army grip. While not quite the 90 degree angle of the Bisley model Colts, it points better and more naturally than the revolvers with the standard 1873 grip. The "Alchimista" with the 1860 grip would be a great addition to your Cowboy Action Battery.
