The EMF Great Western II is made by Pietta's Italian craftsmen
in Brescia, a region famous for making guns since before the
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 I" is currently discontinued.
The "Alchimista II" includes all the features of the "Alchimista I", and adds lower, wider hammer!
The "Alchimista III" Deluxe version.
The "Alchimista II" Standard version (no longer available) maintained the tradition of the casehardened frame,
blued cylinder, and EMF's signature brass back strap while adding a
distinctive Octagonal Blued Barrel.
Deluxe "Alchimista III" retains the physical configuration of the
Standard version, but aesthetically takes it to a whole new level, in
engraved Old Silver and Blue, forming a beautiful contrast making it
stand out from the rest. A six-gun anyone would feel proud to carry!
New for 2018
The GWII "Alchimista, Jr.”
is beautifully engraved in the Old Silver and Blue to match the DLX "Alchimista
III" but with a shorter 3 ½” round barrel and Checkered Express Grip
Assembly. Available in .357Mag or 45LC, this unique combination makes the "AJ" stand out from the rest of the pack!
