Pyramyd Air is proud to announce the latest Colt Limited Edition hand engraved Peacemaker. In the tradition of the Colt Custom Shop (and before that, the Colt factory engraving shop) the Colt's Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Co. has been producing hand engraved models since 1855, and even before that, with engraved guns from Colt dating back to 1836. Those same historic engraving patterns have been reproduced in the 20th and 21st centuries by America's top firearms engravers, including Adams & Adams of Vershire, Vermont.
John J. Adams Sr. and his son, John J. Adams, Jr., have both worked for the Colt's Custom Shop and Smith & Wesson's Performance Center, as well as private commissions from many of the top western gun collectors in America. Specializing in the Gustave Young, Cuno A. Helfricht, and Louis Daniel Nimschke engraving styles, the latter is used on this new Limited Edition .177 caliber Nimschke Colt Peacemaker. The designs on this gun are copied from an original Nimschke gun done for Schuyler, Hartley & Graham in the 1870s, and a reproduction of that 7-1/2 inch .45 Colt caliber SAA created by Colt's and Adams & Adams in 2008.
L.D. Nimschke's style, and that of the Nimschke Shop, was unique in the combination of engraving elements, and extensive use of punch dot backgrounds to add greater depth to the engraving. Patterns were usually a combination of vine scrolls, sunbursts, crosshatch panels (usually on the side of the frame where it meets the barrel), and use of borders or waves and dots to accent ejector housings and frames. This is the style used by Adams & Adams for the 5-1/2 inch barrel length Umarex Colt Nimschke Peacemaker. The engraving on this gun is also inked in, a process used to accent the engraving on nickel plated (or silver plated) guns. In addition, following the details of the Schuyler, Hartley and Graham 7-1/2 inch Colt, the cylinder, hammer and trigger on the Peacemaker are separately gold plated before the engraving. If gold is not your cup of tea, you can go for the 7-1/2 inch pellet version that is all nickel.
The very first airgun to be engraved by Adams & Adams exclusively for Pyramyd Air, it is the most lavishly engraved of all the Umarex Colt Peacemakers. This model will be limited to just 100 guns, each individually numbered and signed by Adams & Adams.

Things I liked: This is the best looking gun in my collection... and I have several. The artwork is very nice! My hat's off to Adams and Adams. You really done good!
Things I would have changed: Not sure why PA chose the bb version over the pellet version. I mean... it's not that big of a deal but most collectors want a rifled barrel if possible. Everyone agrees that with a little more dedication... the grips could be made of a much thicker material, like polymer, to make it FEEL more realistic.
What others should know: The artwork on this gun makes up for the minor details mentioned in my THINGS I WOULD CHANGE section. I am glad I went ahead and pulled the trigger on this gun. I'm even thinking about buying another to put them in my SASS holster. They would really look good as a set.
Things I liked: The quality of the engraving is exceptional. Sure to be a collectors item at 100 off. A little on the expensive side for a Co2 gun but its the Adams and Adams artful engraving that your really paying for.
Things I would have changed: None
What others should know: Collectors - keep the box and accessories intact.

If these guns are the same as the real thing then could I buy the wooden or ivory grips from the "COLT COMPANY" so I would have a VERY nice gun indeed?
I noticed you can get this gun in bb or pellet. The pellet version has a rifled barrel. Does that mean there will be 50 of each or 100 of each???. The ad says 100 total. But want to be sure of the amount before ordering.
Gold plating and "Plastic grips" LOL! If the rest is worthy and it looks like it is VERY NICE, then isn't it worthy of better than Plastic grips? just say'n
To answer your question, because the use of ivory or even the resale of ivory has been banned internationally. Faux ivory for many years now has been used to authenticate the original look of these revolvers and many others, be they cartridge firing or otherwise. Do you support the slaughter of elephants in order to obtain ivory for grips of any kind? If "plastic grips" and gold plating don't go together, then do all the plastic parts in your automobile belong on there when your speeding down the highway at 75 miles an hour? Think about the reality of that and LOL when a semi truck rear ends you on the highway. Personally, I care more about the preservation of the elephant as a species than having genuine ivory grips on my BB gun, which by the way is a faux Colt Peacemaker.
