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
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.
The "Alchimista II" includes all these features and a new, lower, wider hammer!
